    Beautiful High-Grade Gem!

    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963). Spectacular first issue as Marvel Comics' most sensational hero is awarded his very own title. Spidey must face the challenge of the entire Fantastic Four in this book as well as the menace of the mysterious Chameleon. Supporting character J. Jonah Jameson makes his debut appearance with vintage art by Steve Ditko and Jack "King" Kirby. Spider-Man's origin is also re-told as timid teenager Peter Parker is bitten by a radio-active spider, empowering him with uncanny power and abilities. Heritage Comics Auctions is proud to offer one of the finest copies of this super-key Silver-Age comic ever to be placed for public auction. An out-and-out beautiful copy that has an immaculate spine and only the most infinitesimal stress line at the upper part of the top staple. Perfectly flat with a very tight spine, exact centering and exceptional cover edges (no "Marvel chipping"). Color inks are sharp and very strong (no smudging) with excellent gloss and outstanding eye-appeal. There are no defects of note save for the most miniscule color flake at the lower right edge of the front cover and the most minor of nicks at the very bottom of the spine. Interior paper is very supple and fresh. An incredible book in every way. At present, Amazing Spider-Man is the undisputed, highest demand title in the entire marketplace. With the earnest expectation of the upcoming motion picture, due out in the Summer, 2002, Spider-Man titles have no equal regarding their potential to rise in value and demand. This Amazing Spider-Man #1 is, without a doubt, one of the best copies in existence! CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $25,000.
