A storm in the reputedly-wrecking Charybdian Sea forces ships to seek refuge on a desolate island, where caves provide the only shelter. First arrives a pirate ship, whose crew is killed off by a mysterious monster, except captain Nebula. Then come Hercules and Iolaus, who were pursuing her to return a king's robbed treasure, with their crew. While the bodies pile up, they find out the resident monster is Arachne, an evil queen the gods turned into a giant spider with corrosive venom for jealous infanticide. Written by KGF Vissers
