|Amazing Spider-Man||Amazing Spider-Man by Nick Spencer: As the title says, it is back to the basics of what makes Spider-Man great and is the best the book has been in yeaaaars. This run is ongoing and the first arc is very new-reader friendly.|
|Miles Morales||Miles Morales: Miles Morales swings back into the spotlight! Balancing a normal life, school, friends, family and super-heroing has never been easy for Miles, but when the rampaging Rhino and a cadre of mysterious criminals start plaguing Brooklyn, things take a dark turn for the young Spider-Man|
|Spider-Gwen||Spider-Gwen: Gwen Stacy, the Spider-Woman of Earth-65, makes her sensational return! And she's picking up right where she left off, fighting crime through her home reality - unaware that it sits on the precipice of interdimensional calamity!|
|Spider-Man: Blue||Spider-Man: Blue: Spider-Man: Blue (Spider-Man: Blue #1-6). A limited series in which Peter is reminiscing events and encounters from his past and how he and Gwen Stacy fell in love.|
|Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt||Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt: (ASM Vol 1/1963 #293-294, Spectacular Spider-Man Vol 1/1976 #131-132, Web of Spider-Man #31-32). A rightly beloved classic set very early during the Peter/MJ marriage, with a lot of raw emotion and drama, full of psychology and dark storytelling.|
|The Alien Costume Saga||The Alien Costume Saga: (ASM Vol 1/1963 #252-263, Spectacular Spider-Man Vol 1/1976 #90-100, Web of Spider-Man #1). A bit long, but features some truly great stuff and has very often been misrepresented in media. This is not the story you may think you know from other adaptations and has a lot going for it like Black Cat.|
|If This Be My Destiny...||If This Be My Destiny...: (ASM Vol 1/1963 #31-33). This storyline really highlights what makes Spider-Man work so well, letting Peter Parker's character truly shine with compelling drama.|
|Happy Birthday||Happy Birthday: (ASM Vol 2/1999 #57-58, 500-502). Doctor Strange sends Spider-Man through time and space in order to help stop Dormammu. During his trip he encounters all of his greatest friends and foes.|
|Ock/Owl Gang War||Ock/Owl Gang War: (Spectacular Spider-Man #73-79). One of the hands down best Otto Octavius storylines and one of the last times he was relevant for nearly a decade, this story also is the groundwork for the budding romance between Black Cat and Spider-Man that took hold in the early 1980s. Often an overlooked gem despite its immense historical impact on the webslinger.|
|Back to Basics||Back to Basics : (ASM Vol 5/2018 #1-5). As the title says, it is back to the basics of what makes Spider-Man great and is the best the book has been in yeaaaars. This run is ongoing and the first arc is very new-reader friendly.|
|Venom: Lethal Protector||Venom: Lethal Protector: (Venom: Lethal Protector #1-6). The recent Venom film is based on this 6 issue miniseries and although it's not the greatest storyline, it is a pretty good solo outing for Venom and a good start to his run as an antihero.|
|Sinister Spider-Man||Sinister Spider-Man: (Dark Reign: Sinister Spider-Man #1-4). Mac Gargan is often regarded as one of the worst hosts for the Venom symbiote. And while I generally agree, this often overlooked 4-part miniseries really is something special. Written by Brian Reed, we see Mac working for Norman Osborn’s Dark Avengers and how he handles being disguised as Spider-Man. The miniseries is delightfully twisted and laugh out loud funny. Reed’s writing is complemented with fantastic art by Chris Bachalo.|
|Venom||Venom: Flash Thompson is given a chance to serve his country, on the condition he joins with the Venom Symbiote to become a hero once more.|
|Spider-Girl||Spider-Girl: One of the first and longest running Marvel alternate universes remains the MC2, and for good reason! Meet Mayday Parker, daughter of the Amazing Spider-Man. Mayday remains what the standard of a legacy character should be, she is similar to her father but with a few core values changed. Seeing the supporting casts of classic ‘90s Spider-Man comics in this new but familiar world is always a treat and it really feels like what could have been had editorial been a bit different.|
Thanks to /u/tinman888 for the Spidey-Snoo

I know this theory may seem farfetched but I just wanted to share it. It’s been in my mind for a while and so I decided to post it here.
In Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, we see multiple universes being pulled towards Earth 1610, one of those universes being Earth 616, which we know is supposed to be Peter B. Parker’s universe. Whereas in Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse, Peter B. Parker’s universe is known as Earth 616B.
In ATSV, Peter B. Parker mentions how Miles was the reason he decided to have Mayday. This is where my theory goes plays out.
So what if, after returning to his universe in Into the Spiderverse and deciding to have a baby with MJ, Peter B. Parker’s timeline split from the main 616 and formed 616B due to this change (Peter now wanting a kid). The reason for the timeline being split could be due to this change happening because of a person from a whole universe.
Please comment if you think there is a flaw in this theory or if you don’t understand it.
If so, what would be your limit?
For instance, I think most people would agree Spider-Man should never invent something as strong as Iron Man’s costume. But I wonder what you’d all think.
Everything I read spider-man comics with Norman Osborn/Green Goblin I hear Willem Dafoe voice as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in my head.
Do you hear his voice too while reading spider-man comics?
I only have one comic book with Norman Osborn/Green Goblin: amazing spider-man Red Goblin (794-801)
So are they rebooting Ultimate Spider-Man, or are they continuing Bendis’ story? I don’t know if enough info is out yet…
From what I've seen of the game so far, I am already incredibly excited to play on Oct 20th. To me, everything looks spectacular, and the gallery of allies and enemies continues to grow and tickle my fancy. However, there is one thing that would make me the happiest person in the neighborhood.
I would love to see a side quest line (AND/OR) costume regarding Peter Parker / Spider-Man and Matthew Murdock / Daredevil. Heck, it could even be the solid foundation to a DLC story line, though Hell's Kitchen is relatively small compared to the massive map.
From what I've read in the comics, Spider-Man and Daredevil share a collaborative relationship on occasion as they both hope to protect their city in more ways than one. They even share a common enemy in the well-tailored form of Kingpin. It would be fantastic to have a story line where Peter and Matthew need to work together to do something like snuff out something sinister brewing in Hell's Kitchen. Maybe Fisk is trying to establish himself back into power through organizations starting in Hell's Kitchen? Maybe there's a new group of enemies on the block (The Hand?) who are up to something freaky. Maybe there's corruption in the precinct that needs uprooted and shown justice? Perhaps at the end of the quest line, you even get a suit that is a fusion of the best elements of Daredevil and Spider-Man (Like Peter and Black Cat with the Dark Suit, or Miles and the Prowler with Purple Reign).
This is just a hope for the game that I haven't seen many people talk about. I wanted to know what other people think, which is why I am posting here. I am a pretty big Daredevil fan, whose fascination of the character comes from the 2015 series. I would also actually consider myself a Daredevil fan first, with Spider-Man being a close second. Just some food for thought! Would you like it if there was a side-quest line / DLC regarding Spider-Man and Daredevil?
Hello! I am a new marvel comics fan! I have already read some X-Men, Daredevil, Fantastic four and Thor. Now I want to read some spider-man. I have already read half of Ultimate Spider-Man. And I have also tried reading some Amazing Fantasy #15 but I don't really like 60s comics (yet). I like comics from 80s onward. Also I don't want to read something that's too big (I guess around 30 issues max is ok). I would appreciate it if I don't have to read anything before the one that you will recommend me. If you have something that requires to read another run before it, please write both of the runs Do you have any recommendations that meet my standards? Thanks! 😁
If so what series and what issue please!🖤🕷️🕸️
Im so happy
What is current status of 1610? And people Like Peter, mj, aunt may!? What happened to miles family. I don't follow miles comics (currently all I know miles family are in 616)(will they go back to their universe?)
