Popa's Favorite Amazing Spider-Man Covers

Keeping up my theme of favorite cover galleries from classic comic series, I present my favorite covers from "Amazing Spider-Man."  There's a bit of skewing toward the Hobgoblin, but that's to be expected, it's my favorite knot of Spidey stories of all-time.  Oh, and there's Cardiac, baby!!

10.  #377 - Cardiac, baby! (Oh, and some great Mark Bagley art.)

8. 346 - I'm not a big Venom guy but I love this crazy design by Erik Larsen.

7. 275 - The real climax of the Hobgoblin story and a great Ron Frenz cover.

6. 19 - Classic Ditko greatness.

5. 230 - This wild Juggernaut image always gets me excited to read this story again.  Romita Jr. draws a helluva Juggernaut and a classic Spidey.

4. 25- You can't go wrong with the sheer ridiculousness of J. Jonah's face in the Spider Slayer armor.

3. 250 - From Hobgoblin's hilarious 'It's great - Steal it!' line to the intense Spidey vs. Hobgoblin image, this one's for the ages!

2. 9 - The first appearance of Spidey's GREATEST VILLAIN - Electro!

1. 251 - The climax of the first big Hobgoblin story, I love this intensely dramatic image.
