THE SPIDER >> CAST
Cast of Characters
Here are some pages covering the regular characters that appear in The Spider magazine.
Unlike most other long-running Pulp heroes, the people in The Spider displayed real human emotion
in the face of unimaginable horrors, and are given a certain amount of growth throughout the series.

A wealthy criminologist by day who is welcome in police circles—but at night
he is The Spider, who is hunted by the police for his merciless methods in pursuit of justice!
Nita Van Sloan
Richard Wentworth's beautiful and capable fiancé. She is a liberated woman who often
fights shoulder-to-shoulder with The Spider and his men in their war on evil.
Wentworth's burly Sikh aide, who is bound to The Spider by blood oath.
A man of few words but much vicious action, he is only happy in the midst of a fight.
