    Daredevil #22. Laugh out loud funny. Great issue. Could do with more Superior Spidey in other books.

    45.

    ASM #658-662 (The Fantastic Spider-Man). Decent enough. Blogged about/ reviewed it at my blog

    50. A tenth of the way there!

    Add to this list: Spider-men #1-5. This was a really good crossover. The touching moments in issue #4 were outstanding. Loved it.

    Also, I read the new Captain Marvel #1-5, which included an appearance by Spider-man in issue #1. I'm not counting this one.

I missed two issue by mistake. Thus once I get them I'll read from 150-200. Here is what I've read so far, it is mostly new stuff:

    ASM 153
    Superior 1
    Avenging 16
    Daredevil 22
    Scarlet Spider 13

    Spectacular Spider-Man Annuals 4, 6 & 7 For some reason I really liked the story about Aunt May's old flame, Johnny Jerome, in #4. Issue 6 was ok, just a follow-up to the Ace character from the previous annual, and #7 was the honeymoon issue, which was just ok to me also.
    Web of Spider-Man Annuals 1,2,3, & 4 None of these really did much for me. Issue 3 is more of a Spidey handbook, which was probably handy at the time. Now it's just outdated. Issue 4 introduces Slug. The other two were average stories.

    X-Men/Spider-Man #1-4 = A somewhat odd story that teams Kraven up with Sinister in an unlikely mixing of a distinctly X-Men villain and a distinctly Spider-Man villain. It didn't work that well for me. Honestly, though, its a clone story and those are a tough sell for me, typically. But the main thing that bothered me about this story was that it seemed very pointless.

    X-Men #27 - First time the X-Men meet Spider-Man. Its just a page worth. They try to recruit him, but he says no, because he is not a team guy but prefers to remain a loner. Times have changed, haven't they?

    X-Men #35 - First full X-Men story to feature Spider-Man, and it involves a misunderstanding that has them at odds with each other throughout most of the book. Mediocre story, fairly typical. Like many of the old X-Men stories, they call to mind just how refreshing the new X-Men really were when they came onto the scene. Spider-Man was easily the best thing about this story.

    Total Spider-Man count: 26

    Also, I read some more Ex Machina and Sandman Vol 2.

    Spider-Man: Blue

    This really is the quintessential Spider-Man story. It has it all. Pete's friendship with Harry, his love for gwen, and his inability to juggle them all. I'm really satisfied each time I read it.

    I think that I'm going to tackle the J. Michael Straczynski run next. Love that one!

    What's the best format for this? I think it was released in oversized hardcover, but that was a few years before the Premiere Hardcover edition. Does any edition have extras the others don't?

    I actually bought them when they came out monthly. I haven't done any research on any collected editions. Honestly, the story is so good that it probably wouldn't matter how you read it. That's my opinion anyway.

    ASM #663-665 and Free Comic Book Day '11, The Return Of Anti-Venom. I really liked the Betty Brant issue, and I'm a big fan of Ant-Venom too. Would like to see more of him.

    Also read Spider-Man/ Human Torch 1-5. There's something intrinsicly funny about the sight of Spidey in the Spider-Mobile. Forever. That will never make me laugh. It's just so goofy. Spider-Man driving a regular car would look funny enough, but driving a car that looks like him - the car looks like A PERSON - it's just comedy all the way. That's a great series, everyone should read it. Mandatory. Go now!

    59 so far. Think I'll count Remender's Venom, because I'm starting that to coincide with Spider-Island, which I'm looking forward to reading again like I kid seeing his favourite blockbuster for the first time since the cinema.

    Does Spider-Man tie-ins, crossovers, limited series, and spin-offs such as Venom, Spider-Girl, Scarlet Spider, and Avenging Spider-Man counts?

If you want to go above and beyond that is fine.

    How it works:
    • Read a Spidey comic and post the list of what you read here
    • Next time just quote yourself and add to the total
    • Because it is a discussion board, tell us what you thought of the issues
    • Anything with Spidey in it is fare game, but have some discretion. If it is a brief appearance don't count it. Use your best judgement
    • New issues count too, but clearly if that is all your doing you won't make it to "500 Club" Status


    I'll post my total up until this point in the next post.

    Have fun!

    Yes. As do guest-starr appearances.

    I'd say the one exception to spin-offs counting is The Punisher, as that is a series that has becomes its own franchise.

    I'm not sure about the rules for team books with Spidey. Or team books with Spider-Man characters (IE- Venom on Secret Avengers, Sandman as a reserve Avenger.)

    Read Venom v.1 last night and Superior #2 just now. Reviewed Venom (which is a GREAT series) and am doing so now for Superior. In short - I like it, but it feels... off, to me. I'll keep reading but I'm itching for Pete's comeback.

    I don't think we need to be that strict. But if Spidey is just a background character then I don't really think it should count. Like I've said use your discretion. This shouldn't feel like a chore but be for fun.
