IDK, about you guys, but when I got back into comics like 3 years ago, I got alot of Spider-man 2000 stuff. So, I've seen a lot of John Romita JR art. And to meet he is the best person to draw spidy.

Ummmmm.........John Romita Jr. is one of the worst artists in the history of comics...he's up there with Rob Liefeld.

@LT1085: JRJR is a decent artist, but what he really shines in is storytelling. A lot  of artists stylistically are far beyond him, but when it comes to telling the story right he is probably the best. 
 
Anyway, to answer the question, Steve Skroce. His Peter and Mary Jane weren't the best but the action sequences with Spidey were the absolute best I've ever seen. Spidey was strong, but not bulky, agile and fluid. Read ASM 418-428 and see.

@spidey 15: oh so your the other guy who actually liked him. Everyone else I talked to didn't care for his art.
#11 Posted by Lustwish (531 posts) - - Show Bio

Todd McFarlane and Erik Larsen always did a good job.

John Romita Sr. hands down. He out styled Steve Ditko. Tough to beat the original. Aliens is proof of that.

@spidey 15: To me his in costume spidey was perfect. McFarlane and Larson were great for the time but Skroce to me other than Bagley was the best on ASM 
 
 
 
@whiteangel911: Romita defined what a good Spider-Man comic should look like, so it's tough to argue that point

McNiven is cool, but my personal preference is Skroce. His run was far too short. I don't disagree with any of these choices here but my favorite is Skroce and Bagley

I really can't believe people like John Romita J's work??   Oh my God, he is the worst artist.   He can make Spidey look ok, but the reason for that is that Spidey wears a mask. JRJ is good at making the bodie's work, but face wise he's laughable.  His artwork for me, ruins comics.  I cringe at the way he makes faces look.   Have you seen his Hulk?  Or His Sentry???   Laughable.

Agreed :D
 
Also I personally think Joe Quesada did a hell of a job on spidey

I forget the issue number but one of my favorite books was during Operation Zero Tolerance and it featured a team up between Spider-man and Marrow and they protected Senator Kelly from some Prime Sentinels...but the reason it was one of my favorites because Joe Madureira's Spider-man was so awesome

From the recent artists I really liked Marco Checchetto.
 
But the perfect artist for Spidey is JRJR.

@Lyrad:

@Aspenite:
I really agree with Marco..... he has an unique style....=]

I do, but prefer his style for other characters more than Spider-man.

Mike Wieringo is the best artist for Spider-man! Is he still alive? I heard somewhere he died.

  idk what people are talking about, i LOVE john romita junior. yeah, i know his faces can look the same a lot but he's got a great comic book feel. i'm not always all about the super realistic. thats what i love todd mcfarlane 's spiderman a lot too. as for realism though, joe quesada is dope and   Marco Checchetto is pretty sweet too
   
so:
john romita  jr, todd mcfarlane, joe quesada and m arco checchetto
