ow/white pages; QES Certified: impressive prime focal area, sharp right edge with no chipping, deep color strike (red, black & blue) 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.
Featuring the first appearance and origin story of everyone's favorite web-slinging, wall-crawling superhero, Spider-Man, Amazing Fantasy #15 is arguably the most desirable comic of the Marvel Silver Age revolution. This QES-certified copy earned a 6.5 grade from CGC. Dizzying prices have been realized for AF #15 in recent years, driving countless investors, collectors, and fans alike toward the book. With a massive increase in value compared to just last year, investors are plunking down record amounts due to the issue’s immense potential for growth, while fans are eager to own their piece of the AF #15 pie before they are priced out of the marketplace. With countless comic books, cartoons, toys, video games, and movies, already on the market, and only more coming in the future, Spider-Man is an international household name for a reason. Three of the greatest comic creators of all time, Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby came together to forge a pop-culture sensation for the ages in this comic book milestone.
