While previous heroes have their origin stories based in spectacular events, dramatic twists, and high tragedy, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko firmly planted their flagship character's feet in the hard ground of daily life in the big city. Shy, insecure, lower-class teen, Peter Parker, drawn to scrawny imperfection by Ditko, transforms into a freakish, wise-cracking daredevil, tortured by guilt over the loss of his father figure, all while scrambling to make a quick buck from his sudden brush with semi-greatness. Spider-Man's first appearance in Amazing Fantasy 15 was like nothing anyone had ever seen before and an instant success, leading to a hurriedly prepared solo debut issue. Note the use of the Fantastic Four on the cover as insurance, as their group exploits were Marvel's one real box-office draw at the time, and the hungry, ambitious Lee was taking no chances. One of the most important comics of the Silver Age, and the book that proved the Marvel Age of comics was no fluke.
The spines of vintage comic books are an extremely important aspect of the overall grade. This copy has an immaculate spine. The corners are razor sharp as well. In regards to colors, the most vital part of the cover is the white behind the glass Spidey is trapped behind. Often the white gets discolored and dirty, but not on this copy. The white is clean and makes the image of our hero garbed in his classic scarlet and navy blue costume truly pop off the printed page! A 9.2 copy sold in a previous ComicConnect auction for $57,523.00.
Overstreet 2012 NM- 9.2 value = $57,000.
