Usually Ships in 24 Hours
One of the top crime-fighters from the golden age of pulp fiction, The Spider returns in two thrill-packed adventures written by Norvell Page and Wayne Rogers under the pseudonym of Grant Stockbridge. First, in
"The Devil's Candlesticks"
(1938), a mystic murder spell has fallen over Manhattan, transforming America's moneyed aristocracy into ruthless fiends and criminals. New York's First Families, no longer the sturdy pillars of society, have been launched upon a career of slayings and thievery that exceeds that of the Underworld. Against this high-hatted holocaust, the law is powerless to act. Only Richard Wentworth, as the Spider, can fight for his betrayed civilization, battling a Hindu horror league that has turned America's most wealthy citizens into lawless butchers! Then, in
"Revolt of the Underworld"
(1942), America's most ruthless criminals have declared war on the Spider. Organized by the Fox, this tireless and devious band have succeeded in framing Richard Wentworth for the apparent murder of Nita Van Sloan while also making the government suspect him of being an enemy agent. With so many against him, can the Spider successfully clear his name while also searching for the whereabouts of his beloved fiancée? These two exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading and feature both of the original full color covers as well as interior illustrations that accompany each story.
