Jack Kirby cover/art; 1st app of Vulture; 1st app of the Terrible Tinkerer; 1st "Spider-Sense Tingling" COMIC BOOK IMPACT rating of 8 (CBI)Co-creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko played it fairly striaght for the first issue of the Amazing Spider-Man, setting up their neurotic teen hero against super-spy the Chameleon and some garden-variety thugs. For a follow-up, though, the villainous Vulture showed up to create yet another classic cover of the fledgling series. Steve Ditko's nightmarish visuals were allowed to flower in full with a bold red backing that had never been attempted on a Marvel book.Bearing an impressive 8.0 grade and white pages, this copy of the second issue of Amazing Spider-Man is a sight to behold. Showcasing the first appearances of the Vulture as well as a very early appearance of Spidey himself, this is an important issue in the early run of ASM. Spider-Man and the Vulture really pop on this classic Ditko cover, made even more attractive by its solid construction and lack of visible imperfections. This is a very rare find, any copy of this book sells for impressive amounts, and will undoubtedly increase in value as Spider-Man continues to create new legions of fans on the silver screen. An Amazing Spider-Man #2 8.0 sold for $15,075 in August 2021.
