    Marvel Spotlight #5 (Marvel, 1972) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Believe it or not, a 9.4 copy of this issue could be had for $500 just a couple of years ago! Much higher prices than that are the norm now, and the black cover makes this a tougher find in high grade than most Bronze Age books. It's the origin and first appearance of Ghost Rider, with cover and interior art by Mike Ploog. It's also the first appearance of Roxanne Simpson, who will be played by va-va-voom Eva Mendes in next year's Ghost Rider movie. And the release of that movie can only help the value of this key issue, natch! Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $240. CGC census 5/06: 42 in 9.4, 14 higher.
