Before Popular Publications' THE SPIDER appeared, THE SPIDER had already been published in ALL DETECTIVE MAGAZINE in two novelettes, written by Frederick C. Painton. This SPIDER bore no resemblance to the later version. "SPAWN OF THE SPIDER" presents the first appearance of THE SPIDER. Spun from the dregs of New York's underworld, his slimy web groped in secret places and dragged down the woman marked for desire and the man marked for death. "SPIDER'S RETURN" is the final appearance. His beggars bound the law's wrists with slimy chains and lives were his weapons in a monstrous crime. Only Gary Galt dared seek the weak link--because his woman was the fruit of the Spider's spoils.
