    Description

    Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. As striking and effective as Jack "King" Kirby's covers consistently were, he always seemed even more inspired when tackling a first issue/first appearance assignment. With this famous cover, he and Steve Ditko seemed to know they were onto something really big. Ditko's most popular work started with his inking of the cover of the prequel, Amazing Fantasy #15. But from the start it was Ditko's interior art on Spider-Man that gave the character and the stories such a distinctive look. After the first issue, Ditko would handle pencils on the covers as well. By the time he stepped aside after issue #38, Ditko's brilliant work, along with Stan Lee's creative writing, had assured Spidey's place among comic superhero icons. High-grade copies of this book have been in tremendous demand, and CGC's most recent census lists only a handful of copies (from over 600) that have earned a higher grade than our offering. An awe-inspiring copy of one of the Silver Age's greatest comic books. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $32,000.
