One of the greatest pulp characters of all time is now re-launched into the 21st century! The world knows Richard Wentworth as a decorated war hero and the son of a wealthy industrialist – but only a few confidants know the truth. As New York City slides into violence and despair, Wentworth has transformed himself into a force of justice as The Spider! With only his wits, his technology, and his pistols to aid him, he fights a one-man war against crime, but when a mysterious new villain threatens the city with an unspeakable horror, it may be more than even The Spider can handle. How far will a sane man go to restore order to an insane world?

Their cover blown, Space Explorer Squadron #686 is trapped behind enemy lines, and the prisoner they’ve been tasked with retrieving is not what they thought he was. And with their friends and teammates pinned down and running out of time, will Keith and Hunk disobey orders and risk everything to save them? Only one thing is certain…central command deliberately misled Sven and his team about their target, and they’re now fighting for their lives as a result. If #686 can make it back alive, there’ll be hell to pay. First things first though…
