    Description

    Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF- 7.5 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", would rank just outside the top ten most valuable Golden Age comics. Without fanfare, Spider-Man burst on the scene in this one-shot issue, which was in essence a continuation of the short-lived title Amazing Adult Fantasy. That series stopped right here, and the one try-out issue resulted in Spidey getting his own title seven months later. And, the rest is history! 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 2010 VF 8.0 value = $36,000. CGC census 1/11: 24 in 7.5, 33 higher. From the Jeffrey Edell Collection.
