Spider-Man is an iconic figure etched by many, captured by few. Over the years numerous artists have tried their hand at illustrating the wall crawler's exploits and some have done better than others. This list is entirely subjective and by no means complete. Who do you think draws the best Spidey? If your guy isn't on the list please feel free to add to it. Since this is a thread about artists, pictures would be super cool! Big Grin

Steve Ditko


John Romita, Sr


Todd McFarlane


Erik Larsen


Ross Andru


John Romita, Jr


Mark Bagley


Humberto Ramos

Mark Bagley, for sure. His Spider-Man, is the definitive Spider-Man for me. It's the one I grew up seeing the most of. And damn does it look good!

I never understood the Mark Bagley love. In general, I can't stand his art style. He's probably my least favorite Spidey artist in that poll.

I had to go with Romita Sr. though, with Romita Jr. and Humberto Ramos as Runners up.

The grimmest and most impactful of the Spidey artists has to be McFarlane though, and he will always have a speical place for me in any Spidey artist list as well.

Romita Sr. Nobody has done it better.

(referring to an original comic book piece) This is a art gallery my friend and THIS is a piece of art.

Don't feel bad, I'm a big Ramos fan. He just isn't the quintessential Spidey artist that comes to mind first for me.

As I mentioned, he's deifnitely in my Top 5 of all time.

I'm saying Steve Ditko. I loved his style and flow of the artwork. JR, Sr. is a close second for me. I think Ramos did a Spectacular job (see what I did there? Laughing ) he's in my top 5 for sure.

I love Ditko for defning the look of Spider-Man. It's classic and timeless. He's also responsible for designing Spidey's main Rogues Gallery, but honestly.. Ditko's art is really not mindblowing.

What was great about him though was that his art was so different than Kirby's. If you wanted to read a Marvel book that wasn't like the other Marvel book, all you had to do was pick up an issue of Amazing Spider-Man.

Ditko will always be THE man, but to me Romita Sr. was a way better artist.

I'll count this letter from ASM #139 as a vote for Ross Andru! Laughing




Oh, but she totally disses the Green Goblin. Rolling on the Floor

It's McFarlane for me. I tried to talk myself out of it but I can't. The last page of Spider-man #1 gets me every time.

I can't stand Ramos' Spider-Man. Everyone looks very angular and bulky.
