Schmitty's Evil Twin.
Amazing Fantasy #15 better not win.
Not a bad list...so far. Not a fan of the #36 Vol 2 cover, I know the signifigance of it, but I wouldn't put it in my top 50. Wish CBR had a better way to vote on these than just replying to one of their blogs.
How is Amazing Spider-Man #135 on the list????
Punisher-wise, I would say ASM #129.
Tarantula-wise, I would say Spectacular Spider-Man #1.
I voted for 578.
And I'd have preferred 90 and 24 being slightly higher. These are two great covers.
I have no problems with Alex Ross's 600 cover or 136 being on the list.
135 had a cool design.

None of the 10 I voted for are there, hopefully they're higher!

Pretty good covers. I doubt I would have put Amazing #301 on the list as I'm sure that #300 will be on it too. I also agree with SpideyCzar about #36. It's significant, but not a really great cover.
I didn't vote, for some reason, but I hope you guys picked some good ones!

I like the plain black cover. I wish it had been storyline related and the 9/11 issue had more on the cover to show that, but I can understand the simplicity approach.

Some questionable choices there IMO, even though this is the lower parts of this list---- with nearly 700 covers to choose from I can easily find more worthy choices than ASM Vol 2 #36 (how is an all-black cover a work of art??) and even ASM #90 (great issue---just ok cover IMO). The worst offender on this list, though, is the beyond-corny "Aunt May Marries Doc Ock" cover---that is a horrible story and cover to boot....a rare misstep in the otherwise great Conway run.

The Shadow, 2008
I think 131 is a top 50 cover. With this ring I thee web. It's funny, and among the funnier Spidey covers. In fact, one of my choices was chosen for humor value, one of the few covers I find funnier than 131.
Issue 90 is likewise a great cover design in my mind.
I imagine the strength of 135 lies in the design rather than the background images.
The three covers I find out of place are:
A pretty ugly Ditko cover, with the Sinister Six
A pretty bland Ross cover.
A completely black cover, a poor man's Spiegelman.
Issue 136 was my #10 choice.

I do think this list suffers a bit from picking covers for significance, but not necessarily great covers. I agree with the three you found out of place for that very reason.
