The Spider #52 Audiobook
Legions of the Accursed Light Death
Norvell W. Page
writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Like an eerie devil-dawn, that green death-ray spread its lethal shadow over New York — burning to smoking crisps the helpless hundreds who dared its path. For the Eye of Flame had loosed his fire-fiends upon America’s proudest city, and, as prisons poured forth their criminals, and the underworld came into its terrible own, no man could hope to combat that ray of death. Single-handed, Richard Wentworth, in the
gruesome garb, dared the Flame — fighting for an entire people’s safety against a monster who had learned to make millions out of human misery and the charred cinders that had once been men!
, as conceived by Norvell Page, was much more than a fright mask and a slouch hat.
A complex man, Richard Wentworth yearned for a normal life, retired from violent crime-fighting often, but the call to duty always drew him back. His exploits impressed a ten year old Stan Lee, who when he launched Marvel Comics in the early 1960s, drew on the idea of a hunted hero to create Spider-Man!
At his side are Nita van Sloan, who sometimes dons the Spider’s black cape and mask to become the Black Widow, Wentworth’s loyal chauffeur, Ronald Jackson, and Sikh bodyguard, Ram Singh. All share in his dangerous life, and every one of them knows his fatal secret. If they are exposed, disgrace and the Death House will be their fate.
