Horrible attempt to revive the Spider in the 70's. The basically re-edited one of the original novels and removed all the overly pulp super hero sounding elements and added a bunch of topical references in the hope that he would then be seen as more of a 'Executioner' or 'James Bond' type of character.
Just doesn't work.

This 4 volume reissue of the pulp character The Spider is a rewritten set of stories attempting to bring the character into modern times. The original pulp stories are much better and stand the test of time without being changed to "fit" modern times. Not recommended

A fun thriller featuring pulp hero the Spider. The villain has a gas that crystallizes steel, and starts bringing down the skyscrapers and bridges of New York City. Spider to the rescue!
