Synopsis for Dan Dare: "The Sinister Spider"

Private Detective Dan Dare is called to a remote mansion, via telegram, by eccentric scientist Phoebus Weber, who has been threatened by a mysterious killer called "The Spider." Carol Clews comes along. In his enormous mansion, Weber updates them on the threat: in one hour, at midnight, he's scheduled to be murdered. Before any questions can get asked, they are interrupted by Tony, Weber's assistant, calling him away to the laboratory. Left on their own, Dan and Carol search thru the big and spooky old house. In an upstairs hallway, they encounter a man-sized spider, standing upright, who tells them that they will die at midnight.

A suit of medieval plate armor is standing nearby; Dan grabs it by the ankles and swings it like a baseball bat, smacking the big bug to the floor. But before he can follow up, two thugs swing into the room on ropes, and acrobatically grab Dan and Carol with their legs, then are hoisted into the attic on those ropes. Upstairs, Dan smacks them both into a hatchway, then he and Carol resume their search of the house. Soon they are ambushed again by the two thugs and the giant spider. The Spider has a single eye in the center of its forehead, from which shines a strange hypnotic ray. It doesn't seem to work on Dare, who kicks the Spider with both feet, and knocks aside both henchmen, grabs Carol's arm, and runs. They escape down a fireman's pole, thru a hole in the floor.

In the basement they find a bank vault door. Dare cracks the combination lock and opens the door. Inside are safe-deposit boxes and loose cash and jewelry laying around. The Spider arrives at the vault door, the lights go out, and the menacing figure's eerie eye-beam shines around the room. Dare finds a light switch, just in time, and one short fistfight later, Dare unmasks the Spider as Dr. Phoebus Weber himself, who in turn is really "Hypno Harry," a long-busted bank robber, with a hypnotic gimmick, that Dare had sent to prison years earlier. His elaborate revenge scheme exposed, Harry makes a detailed confession, revealing that the vault is the never-found hiding place for the loot from his long-ago crime wave. Carol has meanwhile taken a handgun away from the Spider and uses it to cover the two henchmen.

When the police arrive, one of them has brought with him yet another telegram, for Dan Dare, calling Dan away to yet another case.
