CGC F/VF: 7.0
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics 1: an historic, game-changing key issue that acts as a pivot point from what came before, and what came after. The creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this radical new concept featured a passive, neurotic, everyman hero; an unusually emotionally charged origin story touching on issues of mortality and family tragedy; a worldview grounded solidly in a real, recognizable universe obviously our own; and open-ended storytelling that demanded and rewarded close reading and regular readership. This milestone comic has also proven to be the success story of comics investment, growing rapidly and unstoppably in value and becoming one of the few completely bulletproof investments in recent times.

Over the past ten years Amazing Fantasy #15 has consistently been one of the most popular and top performing comics in the entire market. Spider-Man, along with Superman and Batman, is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the top 3 comic characters known the world over. A 7.0 recently sold for an eye popping $43,500.00. When analyzing sales of this comic over the past 10 years you will see a constant appreciation. In fact it is one of the best investment comics in the market. Everybody loves Spidey. The highly saturated rich colors, especially on the iconic image of Spider-Man, coupled with exceptional off white to white pages make this book a copy to be, excuse the pun, Marveled!

Overstreet 2011 F/VF 7.0 value = $28,000.
