The Spider: Crime Unlimited - Hardback(?), 256 pages, 3rd February 2022

The Spider is the uncrowned king of the New York underworld, so elusive to the police that he even manages to taunt the Police Commissioner at his retirement party. But Professor Aldo Cummings, a famous but ill-tempered scientist, determined to stop the schemes of the Spider once and for all, invents a ray-machine which will eliminate the evil from a person's personality. But a tragic miscalculation will turn Professor Cummings into the Professor of Power, and he will seek a more direct confrontation with the Spider.

The first collection of the Spider stories originally published as part of the Picture Library series, these long-lost and fast-paced pulp adventure stories have never been reprinted before, written by Jerry Siegel and Donne Avenell.

Cowled, caped and equipped with a vast array of crime-busting gadgets, Birdman and Chicken fight back against the likes of The Giggler, Sourpuss, The Puzzler and Father Time – and sometimes they win!

A rib-tickling parody of the 1966 Batman television series, Trevor Metcalfe’s super-series was a highlight of Krazy comic every week and is finally collected here for the first time.

Yes how hard must it be to design these things with the copy in mind. Anderson and Death getting lost to the back copy as well. They should do it as a dust jacket and have the underside clear of copy, or put it in the endpapers as well.

This is the design for the dustjacket.

2000 AD’s Facebook droid says: “It will be a collection of those, but with further updates, corrections etc.”

I echo a few people on the same thread that suggest this would make an excellent print.

Perfect! Hope you're on the mend Mike!
