    Description

    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-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. Of course they were! Ditko's most popular work started with his inking (again to Kirby's pencils) 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 an early Marvel Silver Age this nice is sure to continue realizing impressive Overstreet gains in the future. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $8,800; NM 9.4 value = $28,000.
