    Description

    Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. This issue literally came out of nowhere, #15 in a series that had begun as Amazing Adventures, and evolved into Amazing Adult Fantasy with issue #7, a Stan Lee/Steve Ditko vehicle for EC-like stories with ironic, surprise endings. Of course, this was a Lee/Ditko production as well, with more than a little help from Jack Kirby on the cover, and has become the most important Marvel contribution to the Silver Age. The origin and first appearance of Spider-Man is here, and Uncle Ben and Aunt May make their debut as well. After this issue, a few tantalizing months would ensue before Spidey got his own title and become a worthy rival of Superman and Batman as America's favorite superhero. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced. Right and bottom edge trimmed." Overstreet 2003 GD 2.0 value = $1,263; VG 4.0 value = $2,526; FN 6.0 value = $3,789; VF 8.0 value = $14,000.
