Grim Hunt actually had an early lead, but as the votes went on, the Clone Saga managed to take the win. I find it strange that this six issue mini-series was the most loved Spidey story when the real Clone Saga remains so despised by Spidey fans. Go figure.

Ultimate Spidey-does that count? - 1 vote
The Amazing Spider-Man #617 - 2 votes

As you can see, some of the votes went solely to Greg Weisman's story in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #622, not the whole issue itself. Rhino's story in issue #625 easily squashed the competition with the most votes.

Number of respondents who skipped this question - 3

That's not incorrect. It seems I forgot to check that as a question that had to have an answer by accident, and as a result, three voters managed to successfully skip this question. But judging by the high results, it doubt it would've had an impact on the final answer. However, I had to remove a lot of write-in explanations as to WHY they picked OMIT issues as their worst. They were descriptive, to say the least. Good lord, people.
