ow/white pgs; QES Certified: Criteria met: impressive prime focal area + sharp right edge + deep color strike (red, brown & grey)
Kirby cover; 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.
A Very Fine (8.0) copy of a landmark in not only comics, but popular culture, this copy is a stunning presentation of Spider-Man's first appearance. Containing not only off-white to white pages, but also sharp edges and deep colors, Spider-Man has never looked better. His iconic costume looks gorgeous against the gray background and yellow text. This is a beautiful piece of history. There are many copies of this book in existence, but the vast majority of them are in lower grades. This book is earth-shatteringly desirable at any grade. At an 8.0, this copy is in the top 10% of registered copies. Amazing Fantasy #15 will never stop increasing in value. Spider-Man will outlive us all, and this book is an excellent reminder of that. Record prices are happening every day. It should be noted that a CGC 8.0 sold in March 2021 for $385,000. In today's fast paced comic market, March might as well have been 2 years ago. With demand for this book continually appreciating, this is a great comic book to bet on. ComicConnect sold 2 8.5s for $500,000 in the last few months and a 9.4 for $1,050,000 back in March as well.
Overstreet Guide 2021 VF (8.0) value = $110,400.
