    The first Spider-Man Comic

    Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962). This book needs no introduction. This first appearance of Spider-Man has been one of the hottest comics for over a decade now, constantly breaking sales records and setting the pace for all other Silver Age comics to follow. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's creation helped redefine the archetype hero for a new generation with new problems, and in the process brought about the revival of the superhero genre that continues today. And with the movie coming out this year, Spidey will grow even more in the public's consciousness, assuring his longevity for many years to come. A great buy in any condition, this copy is a particularly attractive investment because of it's high grade -- near perfect, suffering only from "Marvel chipping" along the right side, a defect very common on early Marvels caused by dull blades used at the printing press. Had it not been for this, the book would have surely landed in the NM range. CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 VF 8.0 value = $12,825; NM 9.4 value = $35,000.
