    Well, at least I'd also suggest, to go out there, and snap up any Venom and Carnage covers, 80s an 90s Venom, 90s Carnage, the first when you see them. Like Deadpool or DC's Harley Quinn, those characters are HOT, and the market for them fluctuates quite often. For instance, I remember Amazing Spider-Man 361 on the back issue longboxes while it was still on a single-digited price, but if you happen to see it on comic book display wall / case, look at it now! And I got a good feeling VENOM the movie might once again drive those late eighties - early nineties McFarlane and Larsen Venom covers and stories up in value.

    I just got done reading "The Death of Jean DeWolff" in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #107-110...whoa. That was quite a story. A little dark for Spider-Man, but so rich and nuanced with the various characters. Peter, Murdock, Sin-Eater, and all of them had so much character and grit to them. It felt real, despite this man with the radioactive spider venom inside of him.

    Hats off to Peter David. If this is how he truly kicked things off with PPSSM, then I look forward to reading the rest. And I would be a fool not to mention the art by Rich Buckley. He blew my mind with his detail, linework, and mood with shadows and lighting.

    Does anyone know of any trades that collect the rest of David's PPSSM run?

    None of them, aside from possibly Sin-Eater story #1, are key issues, in the sense like Amazing Spider-Man #298-300 found for quite the higher price between #297 and #301 - I am sure most Peter Davids, being the late eighties - could be found in local comic store, a few dollars, perhaps even one-two dollars, apiece.

    That Essential Spectacular #5 is legit one of the best books I've ever read. The Ock/Owl Gang War was the highlight, but just about every story there is great. Mantlo wrote a great Spider-Man.

    He really did! I also read "The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man" and "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut" and I'm seeing what you guys mean when you say Roger Stern is one of the greatest Spider-Man writers. These were fantastic!

    Peter David's 1980s work isn't collected in many trades. It can be found online pretty cheap.

    Two other issues worth hunting down are Amazing Spider-Man #267 and Web of Spider-Man #13, two standalone issues he wrote at the time.

    There is a color hardcover of his Sin-Eater story and its follow-up in Spec 134-136.

    He came back to Spider-Man comics in 2006-2007 on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, and his run on that title has been collected.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    I read "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man", and liked what I read! I'll have to recollect the trades.

    Is any of that stuff in the ASM Epic Collections? They infrequently have material from non-ASM stuff in them.

    None of Peter David's stuff is in the Epics, unfortunately.

    Wait a minute; didn't David do the commuter story? I forget who wrote it for sure, but I know it was in the Epics and I'm thinking it was David for some reason.

    Yeah, you're right. Peter David's #266-267 is in one of them. I was mainly thinking about his Spectacular stuff not being collected. His appearances in ASM seemed to be sporadic. After the Commuter story, the next ASM story he wrote was the Leeds reveal in #289.

    I have Essential Marvel Team-Up Volumes 1 and 2 and am pretty much done with them and ready to pass them on. Want 'em?
