    Description

    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. Some 16 months after Marvel's fateful introduction of Fantastic Four #1 came this even more auspicious premiere issue. The Marvel Age of Comics had truly arrived! The formula was tried and true, Stan Lee scripting about a superhero with human frailties and artwork by Jack Kirby. But King Kirby only worked on the cover here, and was ably assisted by Steve Ditko, who had mostly been in waiting for a career-defining run. The veteran artist had drawn Spidey's first story in Amazing Fantasy #15 six months earlier, starting an historic run that lasted through The Amazing Spider-Man #38. In this first self-titled issue Spider-Man's origin is retold in a 14-page thriller, then meets both the Chameleon (first appearance) and the Fantastic Four in the second story. That was the first FF crossover and tied with one other issue (Fantastic Four #12) as the first Marvel crossover. This is one sweet copy, the nicest one we've offered in over a year, and one of the nicest we've ever offered. Now it can be yours! Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $33,500. CGC census 9/06: 6 in 9.2, 9 higher.
