    If someone expressed interest in beginning to read about Spider-Man, I'd probably suggest they go to a shop or digitally buy the newest issues and see if they like them.

    I don't think it's necessary, or even wise, to start with the "best." As a kid, I just bought what I could get my hands on. It's a bit different now in terms of accessibility to comics, but my students don't much seem to mind that the comics in our classroom jump all over the place: they just want to read something cool.

    Closet full of comics? Consider donating to my middle school students! DM for details

    Not the way I went about it. When I started I learned what I could from other fans and my dealer about what arcs are considered the best and let them guide me timber me started. I found it important to learn the history of the character etc. I understand not everyone is the same but I wanted to shower myself in it's history rather than just jumping into the new stuff

    To somebody completely new to comics?

    Sorry, but my recommendations would be outside of the superhero genre.

    Why be sorry? That I think makes good sense..for all sorts of reasons.

    Sticking to Spider-man..Vol 1 of Masterworks. Good fun stories and the way Steve Ditko drew Peter, has never been equalled. (Completely subjective view of course.)

    Outside Spider-man, a lot would depend on person concerned. But Bryan Talbotís The Tale of One Bad Rat, and Will Eisnerís Contract with God trilogy would be strong ďcontendersĒ.

    Y'know, it actually took me years and years before I found the second part. The first part was still a great read even if it ended on a cliffhanger :P

    Back then comics were so hit and miss... nobody I knew anywhere actually had 'complete runs'.... It was whatever you happened to find at the grocery store or gas station that mom would let you get. Still love that one


    If you're trying to convince an alien species of the value of human race or comics as a medium... maybe??? but for a new reader? I think it would color expectations pretty harshly.

    I don't know. Despite finding it too dark and weird for my tastes. It wasn't really a 'Spider-man' story.

    It was an interesting character study of Kraven… but if you're trying to get someone into Spider-man, picking one where he's dead for 5/6 of it isn't a great jumping on point.

    Man, I wasn't aware that the wedding was collected in Kraven's Last Hunt (Epic Collection)!

    I was looking for a wedding reprint so I could buy it! thanks!

    It actually makes sense to give a background to better appreciate Kraven's Last Hunt. It's a good story but I find it odd when someone recommends it to new readers.

    Do you know if "10.The Honeymoon - The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #7" was collected anywhere?
    Itís like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on! A day full of possibilities!

    Well, The Spectacular #7 has never been collected.
    This book is also missing (but it was written later), the sequel to Kraven's Last Hunt (which is in the Kraven's Last Hunt Deluxe book) - Amazing Spider-Man: Soul of The Hunter.

    This story showcases a lot of what makes Spidey so awesome.
