Kirby cover; Ditko art; origin & 1st app. Spider-Man; 1st Uncle Ben & Aunt May (8/62) Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)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.
An extremely impressive copy at grade, with bold, resplendent colors adorning the classic Ditko cover image, this is a comic that every serious collector needs to have in their possession. AF #15 has proven time and time again to be a solid investment, with great upside potential. With the latest entry into Spidey’s cinematic adventures, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” poised for a holiday release, there is no better time to land a copy of this Silver Age key. Sitting in the perfect position between grade and price, this copy should appeal to bidders seeking an AF #15 with great eye appeal that won’t break the bank.
