Is it worth reading all 700 issues of the Amazing Spider-man? Will I get extremely lost if I don't read any other series?
>>
You should only read the first issue. It's the only one worth reading. After that, the series went downhill fast.

No. Stop at One More Day (#544). While there are good stories after, they just aren't worth trudging through the garbage to get there.

>Will I get extremely lost if I don't read any other series?

Until the Clone Sage, nah, you'll be fine. Once the Clone Saga starts, all the Spider-books are interconnected and you need to read all of them. This is true for a few stories after that as well.

Not really and only once it starts getting into constant crossovers with companion books which starts happening in the late 80s but doesn't really become a problem until the 90s.

By now, you should just know everything you need to know.

>>77845772
Maybe, no.
Whether it's worth it or not depends on the person. If you're a completionist sure it's worth it. If you really like Spider-Man it's probably worth it. If you just have a passing interest read the hits and decide if you want more after that.
It's about 5 days of your life to read it all so I wouldn't recommend trying it unless you really want to

Should have mentioned in the title of the thread that this could be a 'Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread" thread.

Not really any point to doing that. You could try reading the Ditko run for historical value and some of the more classic stories.

IMO, you're better off if you read the first 100 or so chapters of Ultimate Spider-Man and watch the cartoon Spectacular Spider-man.

Is that even possible? Somehow I assumed Spidey was like DW and some of the middle ones were missing
>>
>>77846270
Well there's torrents of all 700 issues + annuals + mini series so I'd assume they're all scanned at least.
>>
>>77846270
...where the hell would they have gone?
>>
>>77845772
It's worth it, but you'll only understand the full story if you read the issues backward.
>>

>Is it worth reading
You're talking about comics. No, they're never worth reading: they're inconsistent in quality, heavy in politics.

Yes, we'll do it anyway.
>>
>>77845772
You should, and I'm being serious here, only read Spider-Man #8, the issue where they introduce the Lizard.

It's JJJ at his best.
