The Spider #114 Audiobook
Recruit for the Spider Legion
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
The Master and his evil clan of one-eyed executioners sprung their man-breaker trap on Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick. The Spider, speeding to the aid of his friendly enemy, Kirkpatrick, brought the full fury of Kali’s assassins down on his own head. And Commissioner Kirkpatrick, the soul of honor, was forced to fight outside the law he had always upheld!
The genius of Norvell W. Page’s Spider lies in Richard Wentworth having a secret identity, but hardly anyone being fooled by it! The white-hot relationships between the cast of characters were mature, even modern by our standards. This while he battled supercriminals such as the Fly, Iron Man and the Bat-Man. Authentically captured, the Spider would make a wonderful high-velocity movie.
As the Spider, Richard Wentworth believed in his mission implicitly: “He was, he told himself, no longer a human being, but a cause. He was the Spider! He must live to defend humanity....”
The reader could easily believe it. With a “cold cosmic anger” in his eyes, his “eerie weapons of mercy” blasting away, the Spider seemed superhuman, shrugging off crippling bullet wounds and performing other feats of preternatural endurance that would have demolished an ordinary mortal. No wonder Norvell W. Page called him a “man of steel” four years before Superman.
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! Recruit for the Spider Legion originally published in The Spider magazine, March, 1943.

5 of 5 Even China's Great Wall Can't Stop Radio Archives! December 9, 2019
Reviewer: Dave Daniels from Glendale, CA United States  
I was recently in China, visiting with my wife's lovely family.  Knowing from past visits that China greatly restricts the use of the internet.
Happily, for the 2 Fridays I was away, I was able to get straight in, able to place orders.
I guess that even CCP is fearfull of The Spider's 45s!
