What's a good issue to pick up on Spider-Man if you don't want to start from the beginning. I wanted to start wherever the animated series ended (Fox) but I don't know how closely that followed the comic. Thanks.

no prob, it's just as most comic people know around here, Spidey is probably my favorite character, so i might know the most about him. and finding a jumping on point is kinda hard to pin down, although i would recommend avoiding the "one more day" arc, which was just godawful.

were you the one was trying to read the Civil War?

alright before i head to bed, i'll throw out what can be a good jump on point for spidey that doesn't go back too far, and for that i'd go with with

"Brand New Day" which if you want to or not, you can read OMD beforehand because it sort explains the "new" direction that spidey is going in. OMD starts at 544 and BND starts at 546, from there just read to the current issue. there are some great arcs through these issues and some average ones, but other than OMD and OMIT (one moment in time) they all are at least decent

i'm going to read through some back issues tomorrow to form a better opinion

Thank a lot. Should I read Civil war and then continue with Spider-Man from there (which is just before 544 i believe)?

true, he can pick and chose what companion books to go with it though, after of course the prologue and the actually Civil war books, he can go with some books that include characters he's interested in, like Spider-Man or the Runaways/Young Avengers

the prelude of schism is aptly named because everyone i've talked to about it have either enjoyed it, or hated it.
