    My top 3:

    #1 - ASM 31 - Just gorgeous! Love the red primary and Ditko's Spidey head renederd in the center (I own this copy in near mint condition, one of the prizes of my collection - actually the other 2 listed I own NM to NM/M copies of as well)
    [​IMG]

    #2 - ASM 135 - Classic Romita! Gives all the elements of the story in one shot!
    [​IMG]

    #3 - ASM 300 - not a huge fan of the black suit, not a big fan of that era in comics but LOVED Michelinie's writing and McFarlane's art and this cover is classic Toddy.

    first, spidey, may i compliment you on your nicholas hammond av? i'vealways loved nicholas' portrayal of the web-slinger, the most mature and adult to date. nicholas was my first spider-man.

    always loved this cover to amazing 233, which i have signed by both jr and roger stern.

    amazing 101 begs you to read it. READ ME, it seems to be saying.

    nothing need be said about this one...

    And honorable mention to #141

    I bought it for $3 at a comic shop with minimal water damage to the bottom right corner. Still in decent condition though.

    Yeah, I remember in '77 at the ripe age of 11 seeing that black and white pic of live-action Spidey in the tv guide advertising the pilot for that Wednesday night, I was so excited! They're pretty cheesy now but will always hold a special place in my heart.

    And man! I forgot about #101! Actually probably a tie for second for me! Can't believe that one slipped past me! I have that one in a VF/NM condition. I as a HUGE fan of the '72 telefilm The Night Stalker and that front cover attracted me immediately as it looked like the same house from the movie! And I hated everything else Gil Kane illustrated except for Spidey!

    Funny thing with me is I have a lot of autographs but I don't like them signing my comics. I know this adds value but I don't collect with the idea of making them as valuable as I can. I buy the highest grade of each issue I can find and try my best to keep in as pristine a condition as I can. I'm probably odd man out in that regard but I just like my comics blemish-free and that includes scarring them with signatures.

    ^actually, i think sigs can actually detract from the value of a comic, especially if they're not authenticated. personally, i really enjoy getting them, as each one represents a conversation had with a creator while looking over a comic that i have carted all over the place with me. but i hear where your coming from.

    this one was my oldest asm until about ten years ago, when i picked up issue 11. i have since gotten my hands on #7 in terrible condition.

    Bagley had so many awesome covers. Can anyone post a scan of #392 (Peter Parker no more?). That's one of my favorites. Not so much the actual story, but the cover itself is gorgeous and a great homage to the original Romita cover. And it only uses one color: red.

    EDIT: Here it is.

    I also love PP:SM #75 the final chapter of the clone saga with Pete and a bloodied Ben Reilly trying to fend off a crazed Norman. Man, what a classic.

    EDIT: Here

    Another JJJ cover I love, is the one from around that time where he's shooting a machine gun like an action hero. Don't know which issue exactly.

    That "Crisis on Campus" pose made Marvel a TON of money from merchandising. :up:
