It's tough but here's my list:
1. Amazing 200
This is one of my all-time favourite Spidey-story. Peter finally gets his revenge on the burglar without his Spidey-powers and saves aunt May whom he believed to have been dead for many issues. Great dialogues, great back-story about the Burglar and the hidden treasure.
2. Amazing 400
I don't think that the retconning discredited this issue. It was at the time the perfect end for aunt May. And Ben finally met with MJ and Pete was arrested for a crime he hadn't committed! It was a wonderful issue.
DeMatteis's second best issue after Spectacular 200.
3. Amazing 300
Ah, the introduction of Venom. Well, if not for McFarlane I would have ranked it lower because the story wasn't that great at all. I liked the follow-up more.
4. Amazing 100
I have read it in my Essential but as far as I remember it was just an O.K. issue where Pete drank a serum to lose his powers and so he relieved some crime-fighting memories. It was okay but the real fun came after 100 with the six-armed Spidey and Morbius.
5. Amazing 500
Well, the story was below-average and made little sense. No cliffhanger like in AMZ 100 or 400. No emotional rollercoaster like in 200 or 400. No interesting new villain like in 300. No nothing...
The only good thing about this book was JR jr. and JR Sr. for me.
> Hi everyone,
> I was thinking about the 5 centennial (by issue number) books for Amazing Spider-man (100, 200, 300, 400, and 500) we have so far and was wondering what everyone's opinion was on them. SPECIFICALLY, I was curious which of the 5 you thought was the best (in total or for a specific reason). I'd love to know your opinion and why you think so!
> Just to get things rolling- I think 300 was the best of the 5. I liked the idea of the character of Venom. I don't think #300 was particularly outstanding, but I do think the other 4 were worse... 400 would've been my choice hands-down if it hadn't been retconned.
> What does everyone else think? Just curious.
