(1991-1993) This is an excellent series of paperbacks that gained The Spider
many new fans, myself included. (Though I had read Prince of Evil
in the Eighties, it was Secret City of Crime that set off
the rabid fandom that carries over to this day -- and this site.) Each book contains
TWO Spider stories, and it is great to see the original Pulp art on the covers for a change,
even if it didn't always match up with the stories inside.
The series is only marred by the tedious trademarking of new nicknames on the front
and back covers -- i.e.
WEB-STER, VIOLENT KNIGHT, and AWESOME ARACHNID.
