    Default What are your favorite runs on The Amazing Spider-Man Volume 1 (1963-1998)?

    I know there were more writers that worked on the title than the ones I'm about to list, but as a general idea:

    Stan Lee (1963-1972, #1-110s)

    Gerry Conway (1972-1975, #110s-140s)

    Len Wein (1975-1978, #150s-180s)

    Marv Wolfman (1978-1980, #180s-200s)

    Denny O’Neil (1980-1981, #200s-220s)

    Roger Stern (1982-1984, #220s-250s)

    Tom DeFalco (1984-1987, #250s-280s)

    David Michelinie (1987-1993, #290s-380s)

    JM DeMatteis (1994-1996, #380s-400s)

    Top 3:
    Roger Stern & John Romita Jr
    Steve Ditko & Stan Lee
    Stan Lee & John Romita Sr and Gil Kane (In other words, Lee without Ditko)

    Good question. My top five...

    5. DeFalco/ Frenz- Hindered by fill-ins and a sudden ending, it's still got the alien costume saga, some of the rematches with Hobgoblin, the debut of Silver Sable, and the return of Crusher Hogan.

    4. Conway/ Kane/ Andru- It was uneven, but the heights were excellent. It was also the last run where things kept consistently changing for Peter, beyond the illusion of change or his supporting cast having more interesting developments.

    3. Lee/ Romita- This probably set the template for what we think of when we think of Spidey, with the perfect balance between his private life, his professional life and the superhero side of things.

    2. Stern/ Romita Jr & company- It might have the highest batting average of any Spider-Man run, with the greatest number of A and A+ stories in 24 issues.

    1. Lee/ Ditko- Yes, it's the first and most important run but so much of it still holds up.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Denny O'Neil doesn't pop up that often as a favorite Spider-Man writer. What is it that you like about his work?

    I wrote about it, as part of a discontinued project. I could post the text here, but without the images, it loses quite a bit. I can also send you the link to what's left of it, via PM.

    Sure, I'd be interested in that.

    I have only read two of the original runs But of those two
    Stan Lee was my favorite Then Gerry Conway. I jumped from these to Superior Spiderman because I liked the Idea of the story. I am still reading golden age Marvel but I am really looking forward to rereading these issues when I get to them.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children
