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.

A running gag throughout Ultimate Spider-Man was whenever there was a scene taking place in a police station there was always someone dressed up as Marvel character being lead away while referencing something that was taking place during the 616 universe...

While I think he's stretched too thin at the moment at his peak Bendis delivered some of my favorite comics. His run on Daredevil is probably one of my all time favorites and his work with Bagley on Ultimate Spider-Man is in my opinion one of the definitive runs for the character.

It's hard to find one definitive moment but here's one that I think that shows his knack for dialogue, plotting and humor.

As much as I'm liking Miles Morales, I really miss (Ultimate) Peter Parker. He was probably one of Bendis' best characters.

There's so many great moments with him but one of my favorites is this hilarious scene in Ultimate Spider-Man #12.

Basically Peter has gone after the Kingpin after finding out that his uncle's murderer was once employed by him. The Kingpin finally confronts him at the conclusion of the story and we get the following exchange...
