And the Spider - taken for once off guard - was supposedly dying in a hospital room on the very day when that terror from the seas first showed itself above the city skyline.

    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.
