I'm going to try and present to you Bendis's 'Ultimate Spider-Man'. In my opinion I think USM is one of the best Spider-Man series out there and contains some of Bendis's best writing to date. I read a few old issues on Comixology recently and they were still enjoyable as when I first read them as a teen. I do think the series started to sag as it went on but I think Bendis deserves credit for going as far as he did. A lot of people dismissed USM as a gimmick and scoffed at the idea that USM would even reach #50. Instead Bendis and Bagley ended up breaking the record for the longest consecutive writer/artist team at Marvel.

Right off the bat, I have no idea how far I will go with this. I find it very unlikely that I'll go all the way to #200 and I'd be surprised if I made it to #100. I think it will depend on the reactions this receives and my schedule.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #23 has two back-up stories by Mark Bagley. The first one is a re-do of AMAZING FANTASY #15, with story by Gerry Conway and art by Mark Bagley. The story is called "My Science Project" which has a lot -but not all- the dialog from the original story.

The second back up story is a six page "Saga of the Serpent Crown" story where the Celestials almost but not quite end the world.

The 30th Anniversary of Spider-Man had four supersized issued with holographic covers. They also had backup stories that showed parts of Spider-Man's origin from other perspectives. Here's part of Aunt May's perspective, with an idea that her dislike of Spider-Man didn't stem from what the Daily Bugle said.

Two pages of a five page story.

Couldn't think of any specific stories that fit a 10th anniversary, so I figured I'd just repost an old one; a story from Paul Jenkins, who's run on Spider-Man IMO was one of the best.

I thought scans from this annual were already posted here - I remember seeing previews somewhere but they don't seem to be up here.

Anyway, the sure-fire way to get me to buy a Spider-Man comic on the spot is to have Uncle Ben in it.

Included below the cut are two pages out of the 40-or-something pages of the annual from this year. I don't know if there are other earlier stories that showed what life would be like if Spider-Man didn't exist, but I liked the random earthquake-time-hopping aspect of it (and Uncle Ben's and Peter's interactions are ♥).

Out of all the 'Ultimizations' that Bendis has done over the years, I think Eddie Brock/Venom was one of the best. Bendis had always been hesitant to use Venom but the demand had been great and then EIC Bill Jemas pretty much had to push him to do it. To Bendis's credit, rather than holding his nose and putting out a mediocre depiction (like Sam Raimi did with the character) he did a full on rehaul of everything about the character and made him work.

Also this story is, while building off on the characters, a stand-alone story (which was probably intentional given that Marvel wanted new readers to pick this up) so you don't need to be up to date with everything that has come before.
