After reading this tome I have to say I am not disappointed. Everyone involved did a fantastic job on `The Spider' and his helpers. I really enjoyed this book a lot. There were few stories I liked better than others, but all in all it was excellent from cover to cover. Everyone involved wrote what I would term as `real The Spider stories'. What I mean by that is nothing seemed to be out of character like a fan-fic version of the hero and his lieutenants. There's no doubt, these are REAL `The Spider' stories, and everyone is a hit.
One last note I'd like to make, and that is about the cover. That cover is absolutely as explosive as it is gorgeous, and it's the work of an artist named Malcolm McClinton. I have to say, if the stories inside weren't any good, even that cover would be worth buying the book for. But rest assured the stories are as good as that striking cover is.
"The Spider: Extreme Prejudice is a fantastic book that I continued to read at every chance I could get, and it's about one of the greatest characters to come out of the original pulp era. Get your copy today, especially If you are a fan of high octane action.
Still, Operator #5's cameo aside (Seriously, no one thought to have the two mow through the Purple Empire? Really?), it's a fun read if you're a fan of the Master of Men.
1) Scourge Of The Giggling Ghosts By the late Howard Hopkins kicks off the book with a Zombie story. If you are a fan of the George Romero movies or bad puns you will enjoy it more then me.
2) Clutch Of The Blue Reaper By Will Murray is the story I would have lead off with, if I was editing this book. It is an excellent story and a great introduction to Richard Wentworth, Nita Van Sloan,Ram Singh and Commissioner Kirkpatrick. .
3) The Screaming Death by Eric Fein I enjoyed just as much. I have never read any Green Ghost stories and this cross-over did a very good job of introducing the character and his cast to new readers. It is a great plot with a deadly new weapon.
4) The Steel Tsars by James Chambers makes it three great stories in a row. This story features three Russian brothers in suits of armour.
5)Demon Slaves Of The Red Claw by Gary Phillips is an Operator 5 cross-over. Tt is a very enjoyable story but for me i could have used more time depicting the Operator 5 cast. I felt it sometimes made assumptions of the reader's knowledge.
6) Death Ghost From A Future War by Rik Hoskins I felt was pretentious title with very little to do with World War 2. The story is basically The spider playing John McClane in 1940's remake of Die Hard with a sniper. In the end I think we are suppose to sympathize with the sniper, but that does not work out so well when you graphically narrate details of him shooting a 16 year girl's father, her slipping in a pool of her father's blood before she is shot in the back of her head herself.
7) Fear In The Dark By Bobby Nash is a much needed lighter story about a psychic.
8) Spider Trap By Ron Fortier is a good story about Commissioner Kirkpatrick being kidnapped.
9) Prey Of The Mask Reaper By I A Watson was excellent. This is cross-over between The Black Bat and The Spider. Unlike the other characters I am very familiar with The Black Bat having read his first half dozen novels. Not only do the two heroes meet, but Richard Wentworth and Tony Quinn (their aliases) meet. Plus the Gal-Fridays Nita Van Sloan and Carol Baldwin meet plus other assistants Ram Singh and Butch O'Leary meet. Fun Stuff.
10} Terror Of The Ragoon Raiders By Don Roff is a story about a trio of Asain assians.
11) Just Wonderful by C J Henderson is an absolute jewel. It is a gripping and offbeat story told from the eyes of Nita Van Sloan's faithful dog Apollo. I loved this story and even teared up a little bit towards the end.
12) The Grey Reapers By Matthew Baugh ends the collection like we started it with more Zombies. Sorry still don't like them. Also worth pointing out this is the third title with the word "Reaper" in it and the third villian or villians with the word "Reaper "in it. We have The Blue Reaper, The Mask Reaper and now The Grey Reapers. I think the editors should have corrected this snafu.
Overall I am giving this a strong Recommendation. The cover by Malcom McClinton is a winner and the book is in a large over-size format which makes it very easy to read. I just hope we don't have to wait six more years for the next installment.
