AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963-98; 2003-13) #13
CGC NM+: 9.6
If you're going to do a hero book with Steve Ditko you may as well go for broke and throw him the most unusual and imaginative villains you can. Thus, Mysterio was born! You can feel everything falling into place by this point, as the Lee/Ditko machine fires on all cylinders. Even the cover seems more confident, more willing to experiment, and more full of ideas than ever before. Note, also, the classic hucksterism along the bottom of the cover, with Marvel happily bragging about its stark break with past conventions, as more and more readers turn on to the Marvel Age of comics. The story within this comic's pages is a real blast as well, introducing a new antagonist, with a bit of a twist, as well as heightening the ongoing tension between Parker/Spider-Man, and Daily Bugle editor, J. Jonah Jameson, who ends up in a sticky situation by the end of the tale.

This book is in sterling NM+ condition, with nary a nick or dent visible, the colors remain bright and serve to highlight the masterful Ditko cover art to near perfection. Jake Gyllenhaal will play Mysterio in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home making this book extra hot right now. The sky's the limit on high-grade Spidey first appearances.

Overstreet Guide 2018 NM- (9.2) value = $4,200.
