Kirby cvr; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May (8/62)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 7.5 QES copy boasts impactful yet subdued colors, in stark contrast to the bright, primary color schemes of the Golden Age. The muted gray background really makes the red of Spidey's now-iconic suit and the yellow of the title's logo pop. This book's clean presentation, straight edges, and solid construction highlight the central image of this brave new hero as he swings into view and into our hearts forever. Whether you're a fan or a collector looking to make a solid acquisition, this book is strongly recommended.
