This is, its the very earliest Spider which were not so much over the top. The first 2 by RTM Scott were kind of tame. When Page took over he soon developed the Spider to what we know.
When I really got into reading them, it was with the Carroll & Graf double novels, which are all over the series.
The Girasol doubles are easy to get. Sanctum Books will be doing a new series of double novels in January.
