Review: Doc Savage: The Spider’s Web # 2

DocSavageSpiders02CovATorreThe art is great once again. This issue is a little more talkative than the last issue. but it seems to be leading the reader in a great direction as the mystery as to who was responsible for the earthquake, begins to unravel.

Our heroes find vital clues which seems to be leading to a massive cover-up of epic proportions. I don’t want to give away to much, but the autopsy on the parachute man doesn’t reveal much, however they did discover a type of chemical used in creating circuit boards as well as certain pollens from a plant indigenous to a specific company. It seems that certain governments stand to gain financially from the disaster in #1. Doc and Longshot find a facility that may have been used to manufacture the chemical, but it has been abandoned. Curioser and curioser.

Longshot picks up a computer chip, just before the building blows up and our heroes escape just in the nick of time, if you’ll excuse the clich√©.

Yes most of this has been done before, but the reader is left wanting to find out what happened anyway. I am thoroughly enjoying this story line and I can’t wait for issue three.

Doc has codenamed this mission as “The Golden Horde.” An old friend of Savage’s shows up and she turns out to be, what else, a sexy woman, who happens to be a queen and the ruler of the “Valley of the Vanished.”

All the ingredients which make up a great thriller and will hopefully lead to an exciting climax.
