Volume 1 ran for 133 issues.
Volume 2 ran for 15 issues.
Volume 1 then picks back up again at #150. However, math tells me that 133 + 15 = 148. Where's the 149th issue of Ultimate Spider-Man?
, similar to "Incredible Hulk #600" which would have been the 599th issue of H2 in a direct sequence. Funnily enough, if they'd done it an issue earlier, they could have claimed the Ultimatum two-shot for the numbers...

The next series, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, ran for 28 issues.
Volume 1 then picks back up again at #200. However, math tells me that 160 + 28 = 188. Where are the subsequent twelve issues needed to get to #200?
I have to be missing something here. Anyone know what the deal is?
Well, since this blog resorts to adding the Point 1 issue, a cover gallery, Annuals and ignoring the missing #149...

so that is 191, then…
ultimate spidey special 1
two ultimatum issues
4 annuals- they count!
i could also count ultimate six because they are listed in trade as usm.
not even including the death of spidey epilogue issues
I suppose the best you'll get is:
- Ultimate Spider-Man #1-133
- Ultimate Spider-Man Super Special #1 (134)
- Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1-15 (149)
- Ultimate Spider-Man #150-160 (160)
- Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #1-28 (188)
- Spider-Men #1-5 (193)
- Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man #1-3 (196)
And you can't get three more before going back before "#150", unfortunately. So I'll add what were basically two issues of the series:
- Ultimatum - Ultimate Spider-Man Requiem #1-2 (198)
... and, yeah, that last one is tricky. Don't want to add an Annual, #½ or #16.1 since they all explicitly sit outside the numbering sequence, but given that I've already had to resort to freaking sequence-breaking
, I'm just going to call the 199th issue...
- Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man #16.1 (199)
...and have done with it! [The other possibility would have been some of Ultimate Fallout
#1-6, but only some of those issues - the debut of Miles, most notably - are really USM-relevant, it seems, but slicing up a mini like that to take three issues from six is even more artificial...]
