Spider-Man: The Venom Factor Book 1
Something is stealing radioactive waste in New York, the homeless are being killed, and the navy has lost a mysterious cargo. Who better to deal with these harrowing happenings than Spider-Man? Well, the Feds and the NYPD, maybe--but Peter Parker (aka, in the appropriate tights, Spider-Man) somehow gets mixed up in it. As Peter worries about the price of film, and his girlfriend MJ auditions for acting jobs, the menaces multiply until Spider-Man, with some unlikely help, succeeds in saving the city (sorry to give that away) despite the usual misconceptions and opposition. Duane has a nice light touch with her comic-book superhero protagonist, managing to invest some intrinsically pretty unbelievable occurrences with a patina of authenticity. Great literature it ain't, but it's fun, which, after all, is what it's supposed to be.
Spider-man: The Lizard Sanction Book 2

Spidey's attempts to halt the Lizard's rampage lead him to a web of intrigue and danger that may spell the destruction of a space shuttle launch. The action heats up as Venom, the alien symbiote who wants Spider-Man dead, arrives, targets the Lizard for death, and won't let anyone stand in his way!
Spider-Man must save the shuttle, halt the Lizard's rampage, and keep Venom from destroying the Lizard and the helpless scientist trapped inside him...before it's too late!
