    Description

    The Amazing Spider-Man #8 (Marvel, 1964) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Every kid who ever tangled with a school bully got a thrill upon seeing this issue, which promised some much-needed comeuppance for Flash Thompson. And indeed, Peter Parker does get a chance to box with the B.M.O.C. in this issue, unfortunately, a robot attack causes the bout to be called off. The art on the lead story is by Steve Ditko, who also drew the cover. Meanwhile, the backup feature guest-stars the Fantastic Four, and offers an artistic team we really love: Ditko inking Jack Kirby! Spider-Man is quite the would-be Casanova in this early story -- he puts the ol' moves on the Human Torch's girlfriend Dorrie, and even makes a web-valentine for the Invisible Girl (who was still single at the time, we hasten to add). Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,900. CGC census 4/05: 20 in 9.4, 8 higher.
