A HISTORIC UNVEILING!
Read the story (originally The SPIDER: Satans Murder Machines) that Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster used for the 1940 SUPERMAN Sunday comic strip adventure “Bandit Robots of Metropolis” and Stan Lee/Larry Lieber used for the 1963 story in TALES OF SUSPENSE #39!!

THE SPIDER: THE IRON MAN WAR:
THE SPIDER—cloaked, fanged nightmare in black—delivers swift justice with a pair of .45 automatics. Midnight shadows cast doom over exclusive Sutton Place—under attack by new evil in terror warfare—a sinister criminal mastermind in power armor named The Iron Man!
A Wide-Vision comic book trade paper back based on the novel published in the Dec. 1939 issue of THE SPIDER magazine.
