ON SALE DATE: January 30 Richard Wentworth never wanted anything to do with his father's arms-dealing corporation, but control of it has landed in his hands - along with a whole lot of trouble. When weapons go missing from within the company, Wentworth begins an investigation that leads him to a dangerous terrorist plot that threatens to destroy the company, and much more! Meanwhile, Nita Van Sloan begins an investigation of her own - one that leads her into the hands of a master hypnotist with a grudge against Nita's husband. Mayhem and mind-control clash, pulp style, as one of the original Spider supporting characters makes his first appearance in the new series.

    Minor nitpicks aside, The Spider #8 is another solid story from Liss and Rodriguez. It's a fun read that builds a head of steam, racing towards a cliffhanger that isn't necessarily too surprising, yet left me wishing next month could come faster. Fans of the series will not be dissappointed. For those new to The Spider, I HIGHLY recommend picking up the trade of Vol. 1 which is also out this week. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a good comic, but their was an editorial mistake, where the wrong word was implemented in one of the word balloons. (see if you can find it) Other than that I think this was a good set up for what is to come and I will be intrigued to read Spider #9. As most episodic pulp comics do, Spider #8 kept leading you and leading you to the end but never quite gave you the end because they want you to come back next month. So, come back next month and see if you get the answers you want, and if you don't there is always the issue after that. Read Full Review
