Exactly who the Shadow might be- or who he once was- is the subject of some grim speculation by Taro Kondo and Buffalo Wong, but the answer may be closer than either suspects. Meanwhile, Cranston and Margo come face to face with the full horror of the Japanese occupation... and on the River Yangtze, a deadly ambush awaits the unwary.

Check out what the Spider will do to deal with his enemies.

THE SPIDER #4

Covers by JOHN CASSADAY (main), FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA (1:10)

As Anput unleashes unparalleled destruction upon New York City, The Spider will knock down any door and bust any head to learn his enemy’s secrets, but his investigations into Anput machinations lead him directly to his own father’s company. With the city facing ruin and the police powerless, Anput prepares for her final victory, but The Spider prepares to take the fight to her. Loyalties are tested and relationships fray, but The Spider will stop at nothing to seek justice. It’s 22 pages of pulp action and mayhem with a contemporary flair!

And if you like your action off planet, check out what John Carter is up to this week.

The Spider has been excellent so far. He isn't likable when he isn't behind the mask, though.

The Shadow is pure comic book poetry to me, I'm loving every issue more than the first. The Spider is great, but I'm just bummed Ross isn't doing cover art for it anymore. And Warlord of Mars is just...I cannot describe the words of greatness that it is.

That's a pretty weird cover for Warlord Of Mars.

@RedheadedAtrocitus: I wonder if the'll be any infighting between the Shadow and Spider or with the other heroes in the "Mask" crossover?
