    Description

    Amazing Fantasy #15 Biljo White Copy (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. This hails from the same collection as the 9.2 Incredible Hulk #1 we're offering in this same auction. A true high-grade copy of the highest-demand item in the comic book hobby!

    The first place most collectors look when evaluating a copy of this book is the brown area at the top, and you will like what you see in that regard here. The issue has the origin and first appearance of Spider-Man as well as the first appearance of Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Jack Kirby is the cover artist, and of course inside the issue was the unforgettable work of writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. This book tends to attract strong interest from lovers of pop culture outside the comic book hobby, and deservedly so!

    This copy's provenance includes two big names. It originally belonged to Biljo White, one of the key figures in early comics fandom, who among other things published the fanzine Batmania and contributed to the early issues of Alter Ego. It then belonged to Malcolm Willits, himself a "superfan" and proprietor of the Collectors Bookstore, before the book was acquired by the present seller.

    Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $21,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $43,000. CGC census 10/09: 7 in 8.5, 14 higher.
