    Description

    Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. It long ago passed Showcase #4 and Fantastic Four #1 as the most sought-after Silver Age comic book, and despite its relative "youth", it ranks roughly at the lower edge of the top ten most valuable Golden Age comics. Without fanfare, Spider-Man burst onto the scene in this one-shot issue, which continued the numbering from Amazing Adult Fantasy. This one try-out issue resulted in Spidey getting his own title seven months later. The issue also occasioned the first appearances of Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko collaborated on the famous cover, with Ditko providing the interior art for the Spider-Man story and backup features. Overstreet 2011 FN 6.0 value = $14,000; VF 8.0 value = $42,000. CGC census 2/12: 40 in 7.0, 62 higher.
