The Spider #45 Audiobook
Voyage of the Coffin Ship
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Coffins and gold lay side by side in the strongroom of the liner that was sailing to its doom. And Richard Wentworth had picked that ship to carry Nita and himself to their long-delayed honeymoon in Europe! Denounced by Baron Otuna as a pirate, assailed by the green men in flaming chaos, he donned once more the Spider’s dusty cloak and well-oiled guns — for an epic battle at sea with a terror that stalked in the great ship’s wake and menaced a thousand lives!
Once, during a respite in a typical blood-and-screaming-bullets carnage tale of the Spider, Police Commissioner Kirkpatrick ticked off a long list of who just might be behind the mask to his friend, Richard Wentworth. Wentworth blurted out this self-revealing truth. “I’m suspicious of everyone,” he admitted, “even of myself sometimes.” And well he should be. For Richard Wentworth was an undiagnosed manic-depressive—if not paranoid schizophrenic—subject to violent mood swings, climbing to unutterable heights of exultation in one scene, then crashing into the blackest depths of despair the next.

Here lies just part of the genius of Norvell W. Page infused into the Spider. Wentworth had a secret identity, but hardly anyone was 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.
Nick Santa Maria brings the action to vibrant life, narrating with a fever-pitch intensity. Voyage of the Coffin Ship originally published in The Spider magazine, June, 1937.
