Amazing Fantasy #15 remains the Silver Age equivalent of Action Comics #1 as both a cultural artifact and an important investment for collectors. The introduction of Spider-Man notoriously shook up the comics industry with the premise of a neurotic Everyman gifted with extraordinary powers. There was also a different kind of tragic backstory fueled by Peter Parker’s guilt over the death of Uncle Ben. Jack Kirby caught the eyes of kids with one of the best covers in comics history; Steve Ditko took over the interior art while working with co-creator Stan Lee on this legendary debut.

All that innovation made for a timeless collectible that's kept Spider-Man (and Peter Parker) swinging for over 60 years as one of the most iconic and collectible characters in comics. Spidey is still the biggest star of all variations on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Amazing Fantasy #15 continues to be proven time and again as a solid investment.






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 Microsoft Collection copy earned an 8.0 CGC Universal Grade and boasts off-white to white pages as well as the vaunted QES seal of approval due to a sharp color strike and impressive focal area. Spider-Man seems to swing right off of this impressive cover, which presents incredibly sharp colors, wonderful centering, and stable construction, making this a gorgeous example of a treasured Silver Age key. This book would be the enviable centerpiece of any collection or investment portfolio.
