AMAZING FANTASY #15
Publisher:
Marvel
Grade:
CBCS NM+: 9.6
This is the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics #1: a 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 rewarded close attention and regular readership. This milestone 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 professionally restored copy of AF #15 is tied with the top copies on the census, and it looks like brand new. Restored books, once maligned and shunned, are now commonplace in the market, and this comic is going to go for a fraction of the price of an original condition at the same grade. This is a serious opportunity to bring home this top-ten key at a discount, it looks newsstand fresh, and there's a signature from the legendary Stan Lee on there to sweeten the pot.
