Description

Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. Ranked #1 in value among Overstreet's Top 20 Silver Age Comics, this issue presents the origin and first appearance of Spider-Man. It hasn't always been the top-value Silver Age book; for years Showcase #4, now regarded as the book that launched the Silver Age, was ranked #1. Marvel's first serious foray came with Fantastic Four, but the first issue of that run has been overtaken and left in the wake of Amazing Fantasy #15. Like nearly all of Marvel's "premiere" books of the early 1960s, Jack Kirby had a hand in this one, penciling the iconic cover. But this was really Steve Ditko's show. "Sturdy" Steve inked Kirby's cover pencils here and on the subsequent Amazing Spider-Man #1 before taking over the cover art duties himself. All in all, This is a very nice copy of the most treasured Silver Age book. Overstreet 2013 FN 6.0 value = $16,000; VF 8.0 value = $56,000. CGC census 11/13: 46 in 7.0, 72 higher.
