Poll Comic Book Question of the Week VOTING: Favorite Spider-Man Family Series (397 votes)

Scarlet Spider 31%
Superior Carnage 2%
Superior Spider-Man 26%
Superior Spider-Man Team-Up 3%
The Superior Foes of Spider-Man 8%
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 18%
Venom 14%

Spider-Man has an awesome world filled with so much potential. Decades upon decades have established a great supporting cast of characters, unique allies and a plethora of villains who range from frightening to laughable. Whether you love or hate what's going on with the character right now, there's still a healthy variety of Spider-Man family books for you to jump right into (but your time is coming to an end with #42 if you're a VENOM fan...). Offering a wealthy variety of tones, there's something for pretty much any kind of Spider fan to appreciate right now. This week, however, we're wondering what you're enjoying the most out of the batch. Does Dan Slott continue to earn your support and praise or do one of the other titles hold a special place in your heart?

Voting remains open until Thursday morning (ET). Shortly afterwards, a new feature with the poll results and more will hit the homepage, so be sure to check back then!

I am loving Scarlet Spider, it's so fresh and new, it's really been a long time since I can remember Marvel launching a series set in a new location, with a new supporting cast, and new enemies. When people come into my store and ask for a Marvel book that they can just jump right into, that's always what I recommend to them.

However, I still have to vote for Superior Foes. It's an incredible book. I didn't really realize how much I loved it until last week when I was talking with some people about it and we couldn't stop laughing at how hilarious it is. For anybody out there who loves Matt Fraction's Hawkeye and want something similar, this is the next best thing on the shelves.

Is the a joke? Scarlet Spider is the best Spider Family book and, in my opinion, the best book Marvel has.

Scarlet is my pick, it's been solid from issue one. I'm not reading Superior, but I'm not a hater of it either. I actually give props to Slott for having the balls to do the story, and even more so to Marvel for letting him.

I'm saying Venom because that's the only series I've been reading, though I know Scarlet Spider is pretty damn good and soon I'll be reading that too.

Voted Venom. Although it ties with Superior Spidey and Scarlet Spider as my favorite Spider-titles. Such a shame Venom is ending.

Scarlet Spider is easily the best. It's a shame it's doing so poorly sales wise.

I was thinking I wouldn't have any dog in this fight, and then I realized that Ultimate Spider-Man was counted. Miles is the best!

I likes Superior Foes of Spider-Man really much, but my favorite is currently Ultimate Comics Spider-Man

I'm surprised Superior Spider-Man is so high

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man is hands down the most well written character piece and has the most engaging cast.

Scarlet Spider seems to be getting a lot of love on this poll, but, based on sales (Scarlet Spider was not even on Diamond's Top 100 in July), I think it will be cancelled before the Spring. To be fair, I think Marvel has already confirmed Venom's cancellation.

@jonny_anonymous: It's not...bad. I checked out the first issues and it was decent. Though I can feels sometimes that they felt like they needed a Carnage book and threw something together. Okay, I'm being harsh. The covers are great and so is the art, but the dialogue isn't holding up. I'd give it 3/5

I chose Superior Spider-Man....but now i kinda wish I chose Venom. It was a toss up between those two.

Though, I guess if I chose Venom i'd then wish I chose Superior Spider-Man...

ah well XD

Scarlet Spider! By a long shot! Not a Peter Parker fan and not a Dan Slott fan.

But Venom is also great, at least Remenders run (haven't read Bunns stuff yet).

This has to be the toughest choice I've ever made... I adore every bit of Scarlet Spider and Ultimate Spider-Man.

I'm giving the slight edge to Ultimate here. I love the new tone of the book, the unpredictability of Miles and the ever changing supporting cast. Everything I just said goes ditto for Scarlet Spider but I had to make a choice and I handed it to Ultimate because it is easily the most underrated book on this list.

I really like Superior Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, Venom, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. Hell those four titles alone are solo books I look forward to every month and there some of my all time favorite Marvel characters, (Superior Spider-Man is becoming on of my favorites). Amazing Spider-Man is also one of my favorites. I'm thinking about checking out Superior Spider-Man Team-Up and Superior Carnage.

I went with Superior Spider-Man on this one. I'm having so much fun reading that book. There are more than enough anti-hero books on the market but there aren't nearly as many anti-villain stories to choose from. On a side note I can't wait for Lex Luthor in villains month. Both Team-Up and Superior Foes are terrific as well but neither have gotten the chance to thrive just yet.

I've read a little bit of both Venom and Scarlet Spider. I can tell that they're both high quality but they're not really grabbing me. To me Scarlet Spider is like if Spider Man was more like a manga. I don't mean that to sound derisive or anything, I just found some of the more melodramatic scenes to be very reminiscent of that style of story telling. I really like Yost's writing too. They both look great and read well but you can't always keep up and read everything in today's economy.

Scarlet Spider is the best thing. I need to catch back up with it though.
