Amazing Fantasy #15 remains the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics #1 as both a cultural artifact and an important investment for collectors. The introduction of Spider-Man notoriously shook up the comics industry with the premise of a neurotic Everyman gifted with extraordinary powers. There was also a different kind of tragic backstory fueled by Peter Parker’s guilt over the death of Uncle Ben. Jack Kirby caught the eyes of kids with one of the best covers in comics history; Steve Ditko took over the interior art while working with co-creator Stan Lee on this legendary debut.

All that innovation made for a timeless collectible that's kept Spider-Man (and Peter Parker) swinging for over 60 years as one of the most iconic and collectible characters in comics. Spidey is still the biggest star of all variations on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Amazing Fantasy #15 continues to be proven time and again as a solid investment.

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.
