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.

One of the most iconic comics of all time, Amazing Fantasy #15 is a cultural landmark and a perennial favorite for collectors and investors alike. Introducing the world to the Amazing Spider-Man, this Stan Lee/Jack Kirby/Steve Ditko masterwork is an unmitigated classic. This copy earned an 8.0 CGC Universal Grade and boasts off-white to white pages. Spider-Man seems to swing right off of this impressive cover, which presents incredibly sharp colors, wonderful centering, and a sturdy spine, making this a gorgeous example of a treasured Silver Age key. An 8.5 Amazing Fantasy #15 recently sold for over $700,000. This book would be the enviable centerpiece of any collection or investment portfolio.

Overstreet Guide 2021 VF (8.0) value = $110,400.
