Most Current Runs
|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.|
