Ultimate Spider-Man #7-13
How do you follow up a record breaking run on a new book that was critically acclaimed and loved by fans? Introduce another slate of iconic (but smaller tier) bad guys, somehow make them more interesting, and cap off the next arc with Peter revealing his identity to Mary Jane for a full issue. Ultimate Spider-Man #13 didn’t feature a single panel of action… it was all dialogue, heart, and Spidey quips. So impossibly good.
