Web of the Spider

Hate spiders? You may want to just skip this story if you do. Featuring a fantastic opening splash panel (and a great finale of a girl giggling with sheer horrified madness) makes Web of the Spider one of the better offerings from Harvey Comics. FYI: This will be the first of a few posts featuring stories about people who transform into some-thing other than “human.” Enjoy! And Happy 13th Posting too, you lucky fiends…

From Witches Tales #12 (July 1952.)

I just love how this one ends, the girl is laughing at the mad scientist even though she knows they're both about to be devoured by giant spiders... it's just so goddamn inspired.

Being attacked by a giant spider is such a "draining" experience.
