    But yeah, Bendis won more Eisners than anyone. And Matt Fraction's "To Have and to Hold" is the only single-issue of Spider-Man ever nominated. Non-continuity standalone stuff like Untold Tales by Kurt Busiek and Spider-Gwen get looks in.

    Not that awards count or anything. I also wonder if Eisner is an industry or a fan award because I can sort of sense an Anti-OMD bias in the last

    The idea of anything beating Foes for best humor publication shows what's wrong with our SOCIETY.

    I would also count JMS & JRJR's Coming Home arc, since that also has specific issues being highlighted, as opposed to something like Ultimate Spider-Man which just won for the series as a whole, though if you look at the years you can probably guess which stories were what helped it win (basically issues #1-32, the first 5 volumes).

    Apparently "The Complete Cul de Sac" by Richard Thompson beat it out that year, which I haven't read so can't accurately compare, but I think its safe in saying Superior Foes deserved it.

    This. Loved the Superior Foes of Spider-Man issues by Spencer/Lieber. Funniest comic book series I've read.

    Surprised Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Vol. 1 (2008) – Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Best Archival Collection and Brian Michael Bendis for Ultimate Spider-Man (2001) didn't win either as that was a nominee for 2000 USM, right?
