The team responsible for DC's Hawkworld scored another creative touchdown with this update of The Spider that places him "In the 1990's ... according to the 1930's." Although Nita is prone to lounging around her apartment, and the Wentworth-Kirkpatrick friendship is not explored, Truman otherwise does an excellent job. He brings to the fore Wentworth's colliding dichotomy, and plumbs new depths with Ram Singh while returning him to the Hindu faith that was outlined by R.T.M. Scott. The post-Dark Knight Returns world of comic books was perfect for a relaunch of the depraved world of The Spider.
