My Top Spider-Man Stories

This is a list of my most favourite Spider-Man stories including Story Arcs and TPB's (trade paper backs/graphic novels).

Spider-Man is my second favourite hero behind Batman, and I have loved the stories that come from this great character. I have a relatively big collection owning all the issues of The Amazing Spider-Man since the start of The Gauntlet, as well ass most of the previous stories since the start of J. Michael Straczynski's run in TPB's. Straczynski has probably been one of the best writers I've seen on the character in recent times, as although Dan Slott has done a decent job over his run, he has let himself down since the start of Marvel NOW!

The list will change from time to time if I've either read a new story or read a old one again feeling I've ranked it too high or too low.

I am also going through my Spider-Man stories again and due to that will only add to this list once I have to save confusion on the ratings.

WARNING: THERE MAY BE THE ODD SPOILER IN THIS LIST

I'm also considering adding the Ultimate Comics to this list but haven't decided whether to or whether just to do a list for the best Ultimate Universe stories. Please let me know what you think in the comments.

Good list Ultimate Spider-Man by Bendis is still my favourite Spider-man run and it`s incredibly long too almost 200 hundred issues in. more if you count Annuals and related mini series. I think you could add Ultimate Spidey to this list just like you could add the Ultimates to you`re Avengers list.

@cosmiccommonsense: I couldn't remember whether it was better than the two bellow it was going of what I rated it when I last read it, though now I think of it I probably should put New Avengers above it.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642: Yeah I know I can add it to this, was just wondering if you think it would be better to do that, or just one for Ultimate in general, or both?

Great list. :]

Not really a Spider-Man fan outside the movies, though.

@johnkmccubbin91: You should add it to this since it`s Spider-Man related it would make more sense but whatever you want bro :)

@xanni15: Thanks.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642:@cosmiccommonsense: What I'll do is re-read them first though (the ones I have) as I can't remember what I'd rate them. Also would you say I should do an Ultimate Universe list as well, or just add Spider-Man to this, Ultimates/Avengers to Avengers, and X-Men to my future X-Men/Wolverine list?

@johnkmccubbin91: Don't make an Ultimate Universe list. add Ultimate Spidey to the Spider-Man list the Ultimate's to you're Avengers list and Ultimate X-Men to you're X-Men/Wolverine list

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: It is my personal favourite, though I've not read a great deal before that (just Kraven's Last Hunt, Birth of Venom, and the story for Death of Gwen Stacy (still to get a hold of the comics to read though)).

@cosmiccommonsense: Sorry for late reply. I may do that, but I'll wait till I re-read them anyway as unless I've just read a story I can sometimes be over, or under generous to it, which can confuse things.

Alpha was atrocious, along with the last three on the list, but other than those, that was a great list.
