When young Ben is bitten by a wolf spider in Australia, his brilliant scientist mom figures out a way to save him, but the side effects change Ben’s life. First, he goes small. VERY small. Then, with his mother’s help, he gains four extra mechanical limbs, and finally he grows up to fight crime as the new hero, Wolf Spider. Along the way, Ben becomes fascinated with the TV super-hero cartoon show in Australia, “QueensLaw.” Imagine his shock when a real QueensLaw group surfaces and begins to fight crime. Ben is determined to join them, but all is not as it seems…

Kurt Busiek is having way too much fun in this issue, and it’s a fine read. The guest art by Cary Chaloner and Wade Von Grawbadger is quite fine as well. Nicely done and recommended.
