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.

Note the beautiful, rich colors this copy has to offer: The reds on Spidey’s uniform, the mesmerizing yellows in the title graphic, and the subtle background grays that allow Spider-Man to seemingly swing right off the cover and into your living room. This book’s upward momentum shows no signs of stopping and the savvy investor would be wise to grab it while they still can.
