Synopsis
A quiet Missouri town is suddenly threatened by violence as the Parker gang has robbed a store, killed its cashier and kidnapped a young boy named Jimmy to facilitate their getaway. However, Helen Goddard witnesses the event, changes to Spider Woman and chases after the gang. She rescues the boy and her costume scares the gang silly into turning themselves over to the law.

Indexer Notes

The Spider Woman outfit includes a mask and over-sized claw gloves designed to make her look like a giant hideous spider.

This story is definitely not a reprint.

Only appearance.

Story occurs in the Ozarks of Missouri.
