Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics that debuted in August 2009 as part of the relaunch of Ultimate Marvel under the new "Ultimate Comics" imprint. It serves as a continuation of Ultimate Spider-Man, as well as an all-new series. Starting with the publication of the series' sixteenth issue (January 2011), Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man resumed the numbering of Ultimate Spider-Man (the series had already taken back the Ultimate Spider-Man title in the comic book's legal indicia with issue 3). The numbering will change again after issue 160 through the upcoming Ultimate Universe Reborn relaunch in August.

The series is written by Ultimate Spider-Man creator Brian Michael Bendis, with art initially by David Lafuente, who had collaborated with Bendis on the third Ultimate Spider-Man Annual,[1] and Sara Pichelli (#15 onward). Bendis has also collaborated with Takeshi Miyazawa (#7–8) and Chris Samnee (#155) for other whole issues in the series, in addition to collaborating with several other artists in various short stories. Fellow Ultimate Spider-Man creator Mark Bagley returned for the "Death of Spider-Man" story arc, in which Peter Parker was killed,[2] after which Sara Pichelli took over for the launch of the title's third volume, in which the Parker's mantle was taken by Miles Morales.[3]
