Richard Wentworth was playing the most dangerous game in the world - a man-hunter outside the law; a righteous lone-wolf avenger of the weak; a scourge of the evil, the wicked and the corrupt! Loathed by the organized armies of the underworld, hunted ruthlessly by the forces of the law, he was ever between two raking cross-fires.... Seldom, however, had the Spider, Master of Men, faced the odds which challenged him when the man called Aronk Dong summoned all the underworld to serve him in a most ghastly campaign.
RadioArchives.com is proud to present Norvell Page's debut Spider exploit - a desperate struggle against overwhelming odds to save Manhattan from being overwhelmed by a man-made Plague. In a few short months, Page remade Richard Wentworth alias the Spider into a messianic avenger unlike anything pulp readers ever read before. Driven, deadly, the Spider was a daredevil caught between the law that branded him as a criminal and the underworld he terrorized with his metallic laugh and searing lead.
It began with the torture-killing of a innocent young boy - a loyal member of the Spider Club. The weapon employed was a knife with eerie electrical properties. Discovering the hapless body, Richard Wentworth vowed to avenge this insult to the "Spider's" power.
