The Spider #85 Audiobook
Council of Evil
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
When Nita van Sloan appeared ready to expose Richard Wentworth as a calculating cold-blooded murderer, Wentworth knew with stunning clarity that the Council of Evil — a body formed by his worst past enemies — possessed new, ghastly weapons with which to make the city a private field of slaughter!... Follow the Spider, Master of Men, through his most hazardous and mystifying exploit!
These riveting stories ran the gamut of incendiary thrillers to ultra-violent showdowns between an obsessed superhero and his depraved arch-foes. Manhattan is the backdrop for Richard Wentworth’s apocalyptic adventures. A new skyline has arisen over the penthouses, nightclubs, breadlines, and ghettos of the Big Apple. With the repeal of Prohibition, wealthy gangsters are in search for new rackets. And standing ready to keep them in check, the dreaded Spider.
A complex man, 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 each knows his fatal secret. If they are exposed, disgrace and the Death House will be their fate.
Nick Santa Maria takes on the dual persona of Richard Wentworth and his arachnid alter-ego for this nail-biting audio rendition of Council of Evil. Originally published in The Spider magazine, October, 1940.
