AMAZING FANTASY #15
CGC VG: 4.0
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.
Amazing Fantasy #15 is a sound investment at any grade, from the bottom to top of the census, this book continues to go up in value, and the reemergence of Spidey in the MCU has helped that upward trend continue. This particular copy has some chipping at the edge of the cover, but the focus of everyone's attention, that red-and-blue-suited hero dominates the page. This is a book no true comic collector can do without, and unlike many Golden Age keys, this issue is readily available and easy to find, better to snap up a copy before "Spider-Man: Far From Home" comes out and this baby jumps in price yet again.
Overstreet Guide 2018 VG (4.0) value = $16,000.
