New Avengers (Vol. 1): New Avengers #1 DC
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1): #300
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual: #13 [Pt 1]
I haven't actually been reading Spidey (or comics) that long but I like to think I've caught up pretty quickly. I started reveiwing for this site with Marvel Age: Spider-Man then just hung around acting like I was busy.
All Spider-Man, All Ultimate, New Avengers, All Spidey video games.
Because X-Men was sold out.
Nah, I started Spider-Man with (I think) Ultimate Spider-Man #2. Told you I was new. I then came on board with the main titles during Mackie's run and continued ever since. I've managed to build up a pretty good collection of back issues of Spidey and all sorts of other Marvel titles mainly from the 70's onwards.
The first 100 or so issues of Amazing were great. JMS's and JRJR's ASM run. Ultimate introduced me and I really enjoyed those, and still do. And of course, I liked Peter David's Death Of Jean DeWolff.
