Recommended Reads

Some Heading Names
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.
Side Reads
Some Heading Names
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.

Why won’t marvel use the multiverse effectively?

I mean like, why can’t we just have different universes and retcons and idk, different timelines when the multiverse literally has all the potential for that? I honestly don’t think they even need to mention which universe they literally almost never follow that timeline of theirs even in the mainstream. Seeing everyone fighting over what is right for the characters when they literally have the multiverse concept is tiring. Also yes, I was on twitter for a hour rn.

A) Spider Man The Movie ps2

B) Ultimate Spider Man ps2

C) The Amazing Spider Man ps3

Having a hard time picking where to go next! Help a fella out and give me your reccomendations or maybe a Spider game play order that you think would be best?

Thanks!

Just started watching Spiderman TAS

I watched the first episode (‘night of the lizard’ I think) and I really liked it. I was surprised because I thought it probably would have aged badly but it actually was quite good. I’ve heard that spiderman doesn’t do much fighting in the show though so that’s kind of a let down but I’ll probably try continuing it.

Did anyone notice this similarity?

The confirmation of '94 Peter having found Mary Jane in Tolerance is Extinction - Part 3 is similar to "We made it work" from No Way Home in terms of a status update on a classic Peter and Mary Jane.

What is the best Spiderman game ever made?

My favorite is the newest one, Spiderman 2, such an amazing story and I loved how they sneaked BOTH venom and Kraven into the story.

Lukewarm take: TASM Peter’s journey from being an arrogant rebel obsessing over his lost father to learning what he took for granted with Uncle Ben was rly well written and was just ruined by TASM2

It always feels like people somewhat purposefully misunderstand TASM’s inclusion of Peter Parker’s parents as simply the reboots “trying to be different” when the movie hammers home the theme of lost fatherhood (the opening scene, Peter’s first heroic act being saving Jack and his father, the lizard having worked with Richard, etc.)
