    The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. The Sandman made his first appearance in this issue; the villain you couldn't land a punch on would return to menace Spidey many a time in subsequent years. His origin story reveals how he got so sandy in the first place. Also debuting were a couple of Peter Parker's love interests: secretary Betty Brant, who pined for puny Parker, and Midtown High cutie Liz Allen (sometimes Allan), who began as Flash Thompson's arm candy but soon flashed an independent streak. Which artist could handle this mix of crimefighting action and soap opera? Steve Ditko, natch. Overstreet 2004 VF/NM 9.0 value = $2,577; NM- 9.2 value = $3,500. CGC census 12/04: 13 in 9.0, 20 higher.
