If you like your justice served ice cold, baby, The SPIDER is it!
The body count is high as the most ruthless crime fighter of all time stars in his very own wide-vision graphic novel!Â No one comes close to how deliciously deadly The Spider dispatches justice.Â The criminals are not left behind for the police; they are not rehabilitated. They are no longer a burden on society, as The Spider just mows them down with extreme prejudice!
A murderous ghost of crime terrorizes New York City, dealing gruesome agonized death to any who stand in the way of his quest for power.
The city reeling, threatened with wholesale murder, The Spider finds himself wounded and caught in a desperate battle within Americaâ€™s very symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty. At stake, the fate of millions and the life of the woman he lovesâ€”Nita van Sloan!
Painted in gorgeous noir b/w!
