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.

Signature Series copies are red hot! Collectors fight over the chance to acquire their favorite Marvel titles signed by bullpen legends, especially Stan "The Man" Lee, the closest equivalent comics have to Walt Disney. If you mention comic books, people instantly think of Stan, and there's no better issue to bear his distinctive signature than the first appearance of the most important character of the Silver Age, Spider-Man. In a flight of inspiration, Lee and co-creator Steve Ditko, combined Atom-Age neuroses and teenage angst to create one of the most enduring and charming of American pop culture icons. This debut appearance has steadily gained in value and demand year by year. This signed copy is the perfect centerpiece for your collection of Marvel masterworks.
