Peter Parker’s First Appearance

in Amazing Fantasy (1962) #15

Gotta start at the very beginning; really dig into what makes the character so popular and iconic.

Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #1-38

in The Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #1

These original books showed us how the best stories are when Spider-Man and Peter Parker’s world collide.

Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley’s Ultimate Spider-Man

in Ultimate Spider-Man (2000) #1

For us, Bendis’ work showed how you can respect the DNA of the franchise while mixing things up.

Brand New Day

in Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #546

A memorable fresh start for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man by the talented Dan Slott. Read through #548 for the full arc!

Mister Negative

in Dark Reign: Mister Negative (2009) #1

One of the ways we got up to speed on Mister Negative, a relative newcomer to Spidey’s rogues’ gallery.


in Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #659

A great storyline that helped us become fans of Dan Slott’s work. Such a creative storyline! Read through #665 for the full arc!

Fantastic Team-Up

in Spider-Man/Fantastic Four (2010) #1

It’s always fun to see Spidey team up with other super heroes, including the likes of Marvel’s first family.

Spider-Man by Christos Gage

in Amazing Spider-Man (1999) #661

Spidey stories penned by Christos Gage. His work with the Wall-Crawler (and other well-known comics) throughout the years made him a great fit to help us craft a great narrative for this game.

The Dark Kingdom

in The Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #6

Another great story featuring Mister Negative in which he follows Spider-Man all the way to Shanghai! Also, what amazing (pun intended) cover art by Alex Ross!

Miles Morales: Spider-Man

in Spider-Man (2016) #1

For so long we’ve seen Pete fight alongside the likes of Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. It was great to see it be Miles’ turn!
