    I feel the run is the most consistent in terms of quality and overall enjoyment, I love the combination of variety in terms of the storytelling, mixed in with all of the excellent intimate and character moments that make it shine. It reinvents all of the characters in such a perfect way, and all of the wonderful dynamics and developments that come from it. Bagley's art is also of course excellent, and even all of the follow-up artists, Immonen, Lafuente, Pichelli, and Marquez I thought were great too!

    Plus as an added bonus, I think the run is the easiest for anybody to jump in and read, with the perfect pacing for the trades.
    Agreed! Bendis/Bagley were able to keep it going for the entire run, which is rare.

    Default Favorite Spider-Man Run?

    Mine is definetly the Ultimate Spider-Man run by Bendis, it was very consistent and the characters were all very well done.

    Too many great Spidey runs to pick a singe run as #1 but, outside of the Lee/Ditko/Romita Sr. runs, which exist in a class by themselves, I'd go with:

    Conway/Andru

    Wein/Andru

    and DeFalco/Frenz as my sentimental faves.

    I love Ultimate Spider-Man up until the end of the Clone Saga. After that, the Venom arc wasn't very fun, and Ultimatum screwed up everything after that.

    It's a curse. My other favorite run is JMS. And that has a crummy ending, too. (I just imagine it ends before Civil War. )

    Since I haven't read the modern ones, from my childhood it's Web of Spider-Man drawn by Alex Saviuk. I don't know if the story's good or not by any standard but I really like the art.

    My Top 5:

    Lee/Ditko
    Lee/Romita
    Stern/Romita Jr
    JM Dematteis/Buscema (on Spec)
    Defalco/Frenz

    After that, it's probably Conway/Andru, Peter David's Spec run and Slott.
