Attic > The Spider Reprint #5: The Pain Emperor and The City Destroyer

by Grant stockbridge

The pulps' most bloodthirsty crime buster wages his deadly war on crime in two 1935 thrillers by Norvell Page that foreshadowed a classic SPIDER- MAN storyline!

Thousands of women are hideously scarred by tainted cosmetics while American families are poisoned at their dinner tables. Only Richard Wentworth can stop the deadly carnage and end the insidious plots of The Pain Emperor.

Ruthless racketeers destroy bridges and skyscrapers, slaughtering thousands of innocents! Can the Spider unmask The City Destroyer before more lives are lost?

Plus, "The Serial that Got It Right" by Ed Hulse.
