The Spider #109 Audiobook
Army of the Damned
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
The reaching tentacles of this new and ghastly crime machine struck at the very heart of a nation already fighting for its life. When it framed youngsters from our armed services straight into the filthiest racket known to mankind, it became too rotten a game for even the crooked mayor of “Bloody” Bentonville. He called on the Spider. And that Master of Men plunged straight into the murder maw of Bentonville — to save, if he could, our fighting youth!
The Spider was wealthy Richard Wentworth III, master of disguise, dilettante of the arts, in perfect physical condition, and completely devoted to the pursuit of justice for the down-trodden, no matter what the cost to himself or loved ones. Secretly donning a decrepit black hat, a tattered black cape, a false hunch to his shoulders, a lank wig of stringy hair, an application of sinister face makeup and a pair of .45 automatics, Wentworth prowls the streets of New York as his alter-ego the Spider, chasing down criminal masterminds bent on enslaving or destroying humanity. Much of the action takes place in the tenements and slums.
One of the things that sets the Spider apart from other hero characters is magnitude; the villains commit acts of destruction on a grand scale, sinking whole ocean liners, toppling entire buildings, wiping out entire towns with germ warfare.
Nick Santa Maria breathes life into the Spider in Army of the Damned. Originally published in The Spider magazine, October, 1942.
