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.

There are several copies of AF #15 available in this Event Auction, at different conditions and price points, maybe this attractive 5.5 example is the right copy for your collection? Sitting at the perfect grade that will keep appearances up and costs down, this is a handsome copy featuring all of the important details that comic fans have come to expect from this classic key. This is the most valuable comic of the Silver Age, which gave birth to one of the most recognizable and beloved of all superheroes, your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. With another Spidey cinematic exploit on its way to theaters in time for the holidays, there is no better time to invest in this beloved book.
