AMAZING FANTASY #15
Publisher:

Grade:
CGC VF/NM: 9.0
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.



This incredibly high-grade copy, hailing from The Hope Collection, is as good as it gets as it feels newsstand fresh and is almost completely free of wear-and-tear. Copies of this book are out there at almost any grade one could hope for, but for real connoisseurs, obtaining a VF/NM or up is the ultimate goal. With Spider-Man: Homecoming being released later this year, there is no good reason not to try your hand at bringing this baby home. This milestone issue has 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. This is THE Silver Age comic.

Overstreet Guide 2016 VF/NM (9.0) value = $160,000.
