THE SPIDER VS. THE EMPIRE STATE!

THE SPIDER VS. THE EMPIRE STATE!

THE BRILLIAN BLACK POLICE TRILOGY BY NORVELL PAGE

THEY SAID IT COULDN'T HAPPEN HERE. THEN THEY SAID ONE MAN COULDN'T STOP IT!


Richard Wentworth spent his vigilante career as The Spider always in the shadows. Now evil acted in broad daylight. The Party of Justice swept into office, rewriting the laws of New York state overnight to benefit their criminal backers and make slaves of its people. This American Reichstag gave itself sweeping powers and raised a private army to exert its malevolent will. How could The Spider hope to stop a criminal conspiracy as big as the state itself? This time The Master of Men would go beyond taking the lives of evildoers... by bringing Hope to the tyrannized citizens of the Empire State!

The "Black Police Trilogy" is author Norvell Page's classic pulp fiction Nazi allegory from 1938. Originally introduced 71 years ago this week in three consecutive months of The Spider Magazine, the novels "The City That Paid To Die", "The Spider at Bay", and "Scourge of the Black Legions" are collected in book form for the first time. This stunning Trade Paperback is designed by the incomparable Chris Kalb, and features an introduction by PEAPS member Tom Krabacher.

$16.99 trade paperback, 430 pages

Various Spider stories have been reprinted in so many different formats it's getting tough to keep track. But near as I can tell, only one of these (The Spider at Bay) has been reprinted before, and that was in one of those little squinty-eyed Hanos books that are near impossible to find. This collection looks like a winner.
