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.
If you are a devoted Spidey fan on a budget who has dreamt of owning a copy of the web slinger’s first appearance, this 0.5 copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 may have your name written all over it…but make room for another name, that of Marvel head honcho Stan Lee! Although this copy is in timeworn condition, the interiors are complete, and you are not going to find another example that will be this affordable to those collectors out there that are looking to own a piece of comic book history without breaking the bank.
