one volume of the adventures of the mysterious masked crime fighter known as The Spider, hunted by the underworld and the police alike First, in The Spider and the Faceless One, a reign of terror grips New York, a city stalked by a killer with no face of his own, disguised with the tortured faces of his victims Can even The spider defeat such an incredible foe Then, in The Council of Evil, one of The Spider s deadliest enemies, long thought to be dead, has returned, and is using an inexplicable power to control the minds of others, beginning by turning The Spider s most trustworthy allies against their leader Finally, the Master of Men faces his most ruthless and deadly opponent in The City Destroyer as an unknown criminal mastermind uses an incredible device to melt the steel in the city s towering skyscrapers, bringing them crashing down in an orgy of destruction Can The Spider unmask the madman before all of Manhattan is reduced to blood spattered rubble This is another nice collection of three Spider adventure, though not as good as the previous Baen volume I found that reading one and then coming back to read another a month or two later was a system that worked better for me than attempting to devour the entire book at one time Nita van Sloan was the best sidekick girl friend of all the pulps, and the stories are all very fast paced and entertaining I liked the Steranko art, but this volume has an introduction and afterward that don t seem This is another nice collection of three Spider adventure, though not as good as the previous Baen volume I found that

or make much sense at all they d have been better served by reprinting a short story or two in the space The weakest story is THE CITY DESTROYER in which thousands and thousands of people are killed, so I d guess they had continuity problems for the next issue , THE COUNCIL OF EVIL is good but so fast paced that the author lost track of at least one character and never mentions him again, and THE FACELESS ONE was my favorite of the lot The Spider was definitely in the top five of pulp heroes More thuggish than the Shadow,murderous than Batman, it s the Spider Starting in 35 and moving up to 40, it s interesting how the villains in this collection becomemundane over time From a mad scientist who can dissolve steel, to a master of disguise with an ill defined plan involving arson, the collection ends with a few gangs cooperating for a big heist It doesn t make the storiesplausible, just less colorful.Still, if you wanted to see what it would be like if Bruc More thuggish than the

is the series for you I bought this because I m a fan of old pulps and loved some comic books when I was younger This was for me an 8.00 waste If you are a fan of the hard boiled detective genre Micky Spillane, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, etc this might be for you Unfortunately it left me cold My tastes ran runto the Wierd Tales sort of pulps rather than the Black Mask sort.Keep in mind these stories were first published in the 1930s sothere are words that we don t use anythe one r I bought this because I m a fan of old pulps and loved some comic books when I was younger This was for

a bad guy , still i wouldn t want anyone surprised by it It took me off guard Of course you find that word in several older books People should just be aware.If you like these type of booksdoors kicked in, blazing guns, toughs with poor grammer really simplistic dialog and plotting sorry couldn t resist this is you book This is a series of stories where The Spider is against all odds He must save his one true love, his friends, his city and himself Will there be enough time Maybe not as good as the other Baen Spider collection, Robot Titans of Gotham, but still a fun and exciting read This is a must have for those who love the pulp fiction heroes like the Shadow, The Avenger, Doc Savage, Buck Rogers and Zorro Batman The Punisher Mack Bolan All wusses compared to The Spider Not as good as the previous volume from Baen, but still highly enjoyable pulp lunacy. Mayhem and action in the sensational Spider style Buildings are levelled, seniors take to the streets, and gangsters are mowed down ruthlessly This is another collection of classic pulp adventure stories by Norvell Page worth a read if you want death and destruction in an exciting manner. I started this book some time ago as a eBook from Baen Books I have had trouble staying with it because I don t carry an eBook with me I m locked to my computer and usually end up doing other things than reading when I m at the computer As a result, The Spider City of Doom wasn t as fun for me as the previous novel about the robots Remember, though,that my perspective on this one is colored by my frustration with the media I plan to buy the next books republished by Baen.I suppose another I started this book some time ago as a eBook from Baen Books I have had trouble staying with it because I don t carry an eBook with me I m locked to my computer and usually end up doing other things than reading when I m at the computer As a result, The Spider City of Doom wasn t as fun for me as the previous novel about the robots Remember, though,that my perspective on this one is colored by my frustration with the media I plan to buy the next books republished by Baen.I suppose another reason this novel wasn t as fun was because the events it depicts are so close to the terrorism we experienced on 9 11 One major event though I won t spoil any by refusing to explain the mechanism or motivation of the fictional terrorists gangsters is the collapse of the Sky Tower an obvious Empire State Building cipher and, even in fiction, I felt some of the same gut wrenching I felt in viewing film footage of crowds fleeing Manhattan streets with horrifying clouds of dust and debris following them Another incident in the novel reminds me of the sewer explosion when I lived in Louisville Again, it might just have been too close to home for escape reading.Another reason that this novel didn t seem like as much fun was that the gimmicks were repetitive In both novels, the Spider commandeers semi trucks and trailers to take on his foes I haven t seen such an obsession with trucks since Spielberg s Duel although the Dark Knight movie shares a little bit of this On the other hand, the use of the Spider mark essentially a brand made by a mini cigarette lighter like you d have in a car during the era was interesting when it was used as a mark of Cain in this book.I love some of thearchaic turns of phrase fandango of speed, ordered his elimination, and snaked her arms are not typical in our modern novels written at a 5th or 6th grade reading level I also love the terrific use of poetic justice at two critical points in the main story as with the first book, there are three novellas but unlike the first, all of these feature the SpiderThis book is delightful enough that I ll buy , but it isn t at the level of the first in the series
