Imma go with Scarlet Spider, especially since it seems like they're trying to revive the totems concept, which I really liked.

I had to vote to see the votes so I picked Superior.

I want to see he people vote as it'll give me an idea of which title to pick up.

Wait, tell me some more about it! I know nothing about Scarlet Spider. Where's a good place to start?

Yea that's pretty much what I wan't, I already read Scarlet but I fell off Amazing Spider-Man way back during Ends of the Earth because I don't like the whole Peter Parker: Super Scientist schtick

Depends if you want to research the background of the character or not. If you do want to then you could read Spider-man: Grim Hunt and all the issues of Amazing Spider-man involving Spider-Island or if you're feeling really adventurous the Clone Saga. If not just jump on at issue 1 of the current Scarlet Spider series. The first issue is pretty newbie friendly and the series is one of the best (if not the best) Marvel is making at the moment.

@strider92: wow thank you much sir

Comixology is doing a 99 cent sale on number 1s and 2s right now so you're right on time with that recommendation!

Scarlet SPider.

Scarlet....good storytelling, characterization, writing....all good!

And 1 or 2 "bad" issues only.

@punyparker: 1 or 2 "bad" issues only

Which ones? I can't describe any issue as "bad" till now, but there are a couple of them I didn't enjoy as much as the others.

Venom.

It's close. I voted for superior spider-man but it was only a tiny, tiny bit further than scarlet spider. I'd say that those two are tied first, venom is second then avenging spider-man third.

Scarlet Spider, then Spider-Man when Slott is gone.

#23 Posted by JM3D (24 posts) - - Show Bio

Scarlet Spider is my favorite book out right now.

#24 Posted by TheTrollDance (178 posts) - - Show Bio

Scarlet Spider because Kaine is a badass

C'mon MAN WHATS UP WITH THAT?

I really enjoy Venom, Scarlet Spider, and even Superior (haven't read Avenging) still

man that's actually a tuffie.

I feel like I'm going to vote for the genetic vote, but I'm going to go with Scarlet Spider.

Venom is great but I personally believe Kaine's story was taken the Spider-mythos to new levels to the point they made Spider-Man have all the powers but none of the responsibility aka Superior.

That is just my opinion though.
