    Description

    Amazing Fantasy #15 Curator pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. "And so a legend is born, and a new name is added to the roster of those who make the world of fantasy the most exciting realm of all!" This purple passage was penned by Stan Lee to conclude the origin story of a new "long underwear character" he had cooked up with artist Steve Ditko -- namely, Spider-Man, who debuted in the newly-renamed Amazing Fantasy #15, one of the most important comic books ever published, and certainly the single most important character launch since the Golden Age. The condition on this copy, which hails from the respected Curator collection, is superb; there is some minor stress in small areas along the spine, but the color, pages, gloss and clean edges are all exceptional. The early publication date and the unforgiving color palette make Amazing Fantasy #15 notoriously difficult to acquire in high-grade. This copy ranks among the top 10 unrestored copies certified by CGC to date. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $42,000.
