Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone could give me the name of a good Spidey Graphic Novel that would be a good jump on point for this character?

People say Ultimate Spider-Man is good for people new to the mythos, but I'm not a fan of Bendis' writing.

Ultimate Spider-Man trade paper backs are good to jump in, it basically starts the Spider-Man mythos over. If you want to get in to the main continuity of Spider-Man I'm not sure if it's out yet but when it is get Spider-Man: The Other (although it might be boring to someone new), and catch up on the latest event Spider-Man was in called Civil War and the Spider-Man civil war tie in.

You could get the Amazing spider-man OMNIBUS which has his first 40 or so appearances, or you can get all of the amazing spider-man line on CD..it's called "40 Years of Amazing Spider-man"

You can read the "Spider-Man: Reign" It is very good, although it's not really an entrance point. When you read some Spider-Man books, make sure you read that one.

Ugh. Am I the ONLY person here who HATED Reign?

I agree with above sentiments. You want to jump in all fresh, go with the Ultimate Spidey line. If you want a good place to jump in with the original Spidey, I'd personally start with the 2001 beginning of J. Michael Strazynski's run. He introduces some new characters and concepts to the Spidey mythos, and changes Peter's life forever, but does a decent bit of recapping his history along the way.

The "Back in Black" stuff is really good. Peter is back in a black suit and he isn't afraid to kill anymore.

Wait, Spider-Man kills now? Maybe its worth taking a look at him again; I hated all the mystical stuff with Doctor Strange and Ezekiel.

I dislike disjointed story-telling, which Reign had in loads.
