    I have every on-going Spidey comic ever published, including Annuals, with the exception of Amazing Fantasy #15 (and reprint issues). I have 90% of all Spidey mini-series and related mini-series.

    I have a Spidey tattoo on my right calf (from Amazing Spider-Man #68), I have a Spidey coffe mug, I have a few Spidey PC games, various posters & T-Shirts, I also own an adult sized Spider-Man costume (with web-shooters), and finally I have a limited edition Spidey pewter statuette.

    I probably have a lot more stuff, but that's from the top of my head.

    :)

    I inherited every ongoing comic with the word "Spider" somewhere in the title. As far as I know, I have every heavy Spiderman related miniseries out there.

    Also have gaggles of toys and statues and books. A few videogames. The movies, newer tv series.

    That's it.

    1648 Spidey titles, spin-offs, one-shots, reprints, and guest appearances. THere's a few more scattered about, but I only did th' obvious ones. Could probably add maybe 20 or 30 more.

    I also have various MOC figures, a lunch bag, a thermos, 10" figures, some open figures, a couple posters, the movies on DVD, the TV show on 4 tapes, web-shooters, a mask, gloves, a silk shirt, a couple t-shirts, a couple ties, several ornaments, several cars, all th' Micromachine an' Web of Steel sets, Monopoly game, several games fer Atari, SNES, Playstation an' Playstation 2 and other things I've probably forgotten.

    I have a few sporadic comics such as Todd McFarlane's early work on the 90's Spider-Man title, the movie adaptations, Kraven's Last Hunt book and a reprint of Amazing Fantasy #15 from the Spider-Man toy.

    i also have a 4 statues, all commercially released DVD's of the 90's cartoon and both collector's edition of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2.

    i also have about 4 t-shirts and a painting of spidey's eye that my best-friend made for me.

    Gah! I get you into Deadpool and within 5 seconds you're a better Deadpool fan than me! Bastard! :p

    Ah well... I have his 1st app and issue 1 of his old ongoing so I'm happy... what condition's your New Mutants 98 rated?

    But anyways... I have a lot of Spider-man comics. Ones I'd say I'm proud of are:

    ASM 28, 44, 45, 46, 95 and 131

    So that's 2nd and 3rd app of Lizard, 1st app of Shocker and Molten Man, Spider-man going to England and Ock marrying Aunt May. Also have Carnages 1st appearance. I have about 300 Spider-man comics but if you take other heroes into account, its closer to around 600 I guess.

    Hmmm... I don't do a regular count, but if I had to guess, I'd say close to 700 Spidey comics (plus about 100 more if you count the box my brother gave me that I plan to pass on to his sons 5 or so years from now; he didn't have enough space in his house for them - although I'm thinking his now-ex-wife made him dump them. His comic collection was once much, much bigger than mine. So sad.).

    I also have the Spidey 40-years CD collection, all of the Essentials books, a Pez dispenser, 2 Spidey t-shirts, a set of PJs, and a bobble head from the DVD movie release that someone gave me. My husband also gave me a poseable plush Spidey doll that has suction cups on it; it sticks to my dresser mirror.

    I have between 550 and 600 comic books (Ultimate, Spider-Girl, 616), a Green Goblin statue, a collectors plate of Amazing Fantasy #15, an animated cell of Venom vs Spidey and various posters, including the movie teaser posters.

    I have about 3,000 or so comics.
    I'd say about a third of those are Spidey comics. I have a ton of ASM, from issues 328-528 or so (whenever Iron Spidey showed up, I quit buying ASM).
    Web of Spider-Man #79-the end of the series.
    Spectacular Spider-Man from "The Child Within" (issue numbers 160-something) until the end of the Clone Saga.
    Sensational Spider-Man 1- whatever
    Various one shots, minis, specials, trades, Hardcovers and some of the Essentials.

    I also have alot of Spidey memorabilia.

    1 Statue, 4 busts, dozens of action figures, both the collector's edition DVDs of both movies, I have the pulled WTC teaser poster from the first movie, I have the teaser poster for the second movie, and I hav ethe three poster set from the second movie. I also have a few Spider-Man: Blue posters, a Spider-man/Black Cat poster, and a Marvel Universe poster featuring Spidey.
    I also have an adult Spidey costume, a few hoodies, a dozen or so t-shirts, boxer shorts, and two pair of pajama pants (God bless my wife and her keen eye for clearance merchandise!).

    My prized possesions of the comics are as follows:

    Amazing Spider-Man #248- This is the first comic I ever had. I couldn't even read when I had it. I saw it in an issue of Wizard, and scoured the comics shops looking for a copy about 20 years after losing the original.

    Amazing Spider-Man #251- First appearance of the Black Costume, and this was the first comic a young lady ever bought for me as a present....and it proved to be symbollic, as I later married this young lady. We're still going strong.

    ASM #300 CGC 9.2- My wife bought this for me as a gift for one of my birthdays when we were dating. First appearance of Venom.

    Ultimate Spider-Man #1 DF exclusive cover- This baby was a tough find, but I bought it for 50 bucks, and now it's worth about 3-4 times that much. Hotcha!

    Can't be arsed counting 'em all, but I've got about 3 comic boxes worth of comics. So at a guess I'd say about 400-ish Spidey comics.
    I also have 5 Spidey statues & 4 Spidey mini-busts, countless action figures, games (board & video), t-shirts, DVD's, prints, cards & probably alot more that I'm forgetting...

    My sister just tells me I'm sad and doesn't get me presents :(

    Ah well, 9.8 is a very nice score :up: Mine isn't CGCd but there's nothing wrong with it, it'd definately get a 9.0 or above :up:

    I've been collecting Spider-Man for less than 2 years... I guess it will be two years in August.

    • I'm working on filling up my 3rd box of bagged and boarded comics...how ever many that is. If it has Spider-Man in it, I have it... from about 2000 through recent.
    Otherwise I have:
    • All the Spider-Man Essentials (9 volumns)
    • All 6 hardback volumns of Ultimate Spider-Man.
    • 4 paperback volumns of Marvel Masterworks (ASM).
    • The Best of Spider-Man hardback volumns
    • Complete TPB (graphic novel) collections of Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man Unlimited, Tangled Webs and the mini-series that have been released in the past couple of years.
    • Parallel Lives, graphic novel.
    • The 40-year Anniversary Collection on CD of the Amazing Spider-Man.
    • About 12 Spider-Man novels (as in, actual novels, not graphic novels).
    • The collector's edition DVDs of both Spider-Man movies.
    • The 3 main movie posters from Spider-Man 2.
    • A horizonal cropped version of Spider-Man 2's Destiny poster, matted and framed.
    • The Spider-Man 2 box-like marquee that Wal-Mart puts over the security sensors at the entrances to their stores. It was advertising the DVD release. It's bigger than the movie poster. (My boyfriend snagged it for me... they were going to throw it out.) Very cool.
    • All the animated series that are available on DVD, including the box set of the 67 cartoon, the mid 90's, and the MTV New Animated Series.
    • A nice collection of Spidey Christmas ornaments... about 13.
    • 5 Spidey t-shirts.
    • Several poseable action figures, including the 18"/67pts of articulation version.
    • Mary Jane Barbie Doll
    • Lots of Spidey "stuff"... pillowcases, beach towels, blanket throw, coffee mug, keychain, magnets, cups, coloring books/posters, notebooks, puzzles, web shooters, halloween bucket, playing cards, etc... I have a family that is quite amused by my Spider-Man "habit" so they feed it with silly stuff.

    I got it from a friend of mine. He had owned it for years and then gave it to me for my birthday (not bad for a re-gift! :up: ). I'm not sure where he got it but it was something like an offer from a cereal box. Sorry, but I dont have a scanner. :(

    I have around 600 spidey comics.
    I have been considering seperating my spidey's from my other comics, and putting them in chronological order. Anyone else done this?

    Someone has. They were part of my collection as a whole but I used to keep all th' Spidey's together (as well as other multiple titles), alphabetized by title and then by number. Last year, though, I gave in and put them in their proper alphabetical places.
