I was about 13 when I first saw this cover. That's when I really caught the comic book bug. I thought the art was amazing (no pun intended). It was in a 5 pack at Wal-mart for about $10. Issues #1 through 5.
Spider-Man: Homecoming did very well in the box office (and don’t sleep because Wonder Woman is still in the top 5 as well!) not to mention it has been positively reviewed not just by us, but others as well. Many fans of the movie have collected Spider-Man comics as well since Spider-Man has been a mainstay for nearly 60 years. We asked some fans to share their most favorite Spider-man comics and what made them so special. Here is what they had to share:
Green Goblin was always my favorite villain. I always collected appearances of him, but I never thought I would own a first appearance. I bought this at a convention about 20 years ago from a kid that needed to sell his comics to pay for college. It’s also the only appearance (that I know of) of the flying broomstick.
I collect swipes of Spider-Man #1. The Marvel Collectable Classics #2 was on that list but at the time the cheapest I could find was $350. I was looking on quite a large and well known comic web site and they had it listed for $7 but the listing had no picture. I thought for $7 plus shipping from the US then it would be worth the punt. I was over the moon when this comic dropped through my door, the first thing I did was send it back to the US to be signed by Stan Lee and Todd McFarlane and then slabbed. This is my keeper.
This one. I grew up watching the 90s Spider-Man show. Hobgoblin was a big feature in that so this is my favourite cover. He’s a great villain and a there is a great rapport between the two of them.
I have no idea how I got this book. It’s been in my collection forever. I can only imagine how I got it. I have since purchased a Near Mint copy. This copy is an original copy of mine.
I guess this is my favorite Spider-man. My gem was stolen. I always liked Sinister Six.
My favorite is this one I bought as a 12 year old boy. It’s the first one that started me on the hobby, and I got it signed too.
Well, everyone likes a first appearance.
I had this one graded myself. One of my first. Long before the hype. For my son and I, Carnage was one of our favorite characters. It was ours when Carnage didn’t mean s**t to anyone.
One of the first comic covers that made me start collecting. Also got mine signed by Stan Lee because he’s a personal hero of mine, and wanted something from him before he’s gone. I have them all but the platinum.

This is from the run by J. Michael Straczynski when I got back into comics, early 2000s. I had cover artist Kaare Andrews sign it. He obliged and handed it back. Then he took it back out of my hand and sketched the Spidey mask in gold sharpie. So great memory and an awesome creator to boot.
3 years ago on the day before FCBD, my LCS got a boxload of comics in they had just bought from someone. I asked if I could go thru it and the owner said yes I could. Everything in there that I wanted was 2 bucks each. As I was perusing the box, I ran across the 300 and my jaw dropped and my heart stopped. I called the owner over and showed him and without missing a beat he says…I told you… 2 bucks. Yes he knew exactly what it was. Last year I finally got Stan Lee to sign it.
