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 5.0 CGC copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 represents the introduction of Spider-Man to the world, this is the issue that cemented the Silver Age reputation of Marvel Comics. This book is such an important piece of comics history that would be extremely desirable in any grade. Collectors and comic fans alike haven't stopped talking about this book for the last 60 years, and they surely won't give up any time soon thanks to the MCU’s blockbuster Spidey franchise flicks, and the recently resounding success of the animated blockbuster “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” An Amazing Fantasy #15 5.0 sold for $43,200 in July 2023.
Overstreet Guide 2023 VG/FN (5.0) value = $55,400.
