    The Spider - October 1933 (Popular, 1933) Condition: VG. A striking copy of the first issue of this classic hero pulp title, with a memorable cover by William Baumhofer. Created as competition for the Shadow and Doc Savage, the Spider fought criminal masterminds for 10 years and 118 issues, and remains one of the most memorable pulp heroes. This beautiful copy has a complete cover and spine (with a little wear to the head and tail), and supple off-white pages. There is a single strip of tape inside the front cover, from top to bottom, supporting a hinge crease, and the edges have been trimmed. Bookery's Guide to Pulps VG value = $875.
