Marketplace09 has an online auction for Amazing Fantasy #15, the very first appearance of Spider-Man.
This comic is generally regarded as one of Marvel’s top three iconic issues. Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, written by Stan Lee and featuring the artistic collaboration of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko this is the comic that started it all for Spiderman.

Graded at Very Good to Very Good Plus, opportunities like this rarely come along, so don’t miss out. This comic can only appreciate in value!

The expert opinion: Cover-wise, there are no pencil marks or stamps visible and it is a cents copy. The front and back covers look tight, flat and retain some gloss. There is some “marbling” or “chipping” to the right side of the front cover and a small lower spine split.

The inside pages, although obviously tanned, are supple and without tears, creases, or ads removed. The staples are firm and the centre pages are well attached and not coming loose. As far as we can see, there is no evidence of any past restoration of this comic.
While every comic collector dreams of owning Action Comics #1, this is the book I'd love to own. The Amazing Spider-Man was the very first super hero comic book I ever read. I was instantly hooked and Spider-Man has been my favorite super hero ever since. This is the story that started it all and made millions of kids believe that good conquers evil,but comes at a hefty price.
