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.

This historic 5.0 CGC copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 presents the introduction of Spider-Man, and his Uncle Ben and Aunt May to fans everywhere, this issue cemented the Silver Age reputation of Marvel Comics. This book is so important, it would be extremely desirable in any grade. A VC/F copy recently sold for a whopping $57,000. Collectors and comic fans alike haven't stopped talking about this book for the last 50 years, and they surely won't stop any time soon thanks to the MCU’s blockbuster Spidey franchise flicks, and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” on the horizon.

Overstreet Guide 2022 VG/F (5.0) value = $35,100
