So a little introduction: Carnage was one of the characters Bendis had no interest in doing. He changed his mind after reading an article about what not to do with science and the result is a character that is Carnage in appearance only. Your mileage will vary but in my opinion this storyline includes what may be the single worst thing Bendis has ever done on the title. See for yourself.

As a heads up there's some disturbing imagery here that's not commonly found in a Spider-Man comic.

In some ways the 'Doctor Octopus' arc could be viewed as an example of Bendis's 'decompressed' storytelling given that it ran for seven issues, Spidey and Ock don't even meet until four issues in and the story is a bit cluttered with subplots involving Justin Hammer and Kraven. Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

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.

Once again, I'm posting some pages from CIVIL WAR. In this case, pages from J. Michael Straczynski and Ron Garney's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN run.

Why did Spider-Man decide to unmask during CIVIL WAR? After the cut, seven and a half pages from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #532 explain it. Sort of.

In 2004 Marvel released a Spider-Man title under the 'Marvel Knights' imprint. The basic idea was to make a more "hard PG-13" Spider-Man title with Mark Millar and Terry Dodson delivering a 12 issue arc in three parts. There's no official title for the whole thing but it's been called "Shush" by the fans given the obvious similarities to 'Hush' that was running around the same time; an "epic" about a mystery villain causing havoc that happens to involve the majority of the hero's rogue gallery.

FWIW, while both are a lot of 'style over substance', I enjoyed "Shush" a lot more. You may think differently.

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.
