The 50 Best Spider-Man Stories By Creative Teams

Posted by SMReviews Team 28 July 2012


Stan Lee worked on more of out Top 50 than any 
Spider-Man talent, writer or artist.
His frequent collaborator John Romita Sr. drew 
more of the 50 best Spider-Man stories than any 
other artist. 
Here's our Top 50 list, split by writer and artist, so you can see how your favorite comic book creators did.

Some of the selections are from film or television, in which there's so much talent involved that it's just easier to create a seperate category split by series.

Kaare Andrews is the only individual to make the list as writer and artist, although an argument can certainly be made that Steve Ditko was essentially the co-writer of his Amazing Spider-Man run.
