    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 U.K. edition (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. Though Spider-Man plied his crime-fighting trade in New York City, U.K. comic readers were in on his adventures from the very beginning (see our U.K. Amazing Fantasy #15 elsewhere in this auction). For a mere ninepence, British fans got to thrill to the first issue of Spidey's own title. The cover is a Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby collaboration, while the interior story (drawn by Ditko) features Spider-Man trying to land a job with the Fantastic Four. U.K. kids also got to see the first appearance of J. Jonah Jameson, a publisher who puts Fleet Street to shame, and of the first supervillain to menace Spidey, the Chameleon. This is, by far, the highest-graded copy of the U.K. variant that CGC has certified to date, with the next highest at VG/FN 5.0. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value (for the U.S. edition) = $8,750.
