Why Amazing Fantasy 15 is a Key Issue Comic

Perhaps THE most famous comic book published since the rare Action Comics #1 (first Superman) and Detective Comics #27 (first Batman), AF15 introduces the world's most popular superhero, the Amazing Spider-Man.

It took several months for Marvel to cash in on this success with the spin-off title, Amazing Spider-Man.

Guide to AF15 Comic Book Values

Certainly, AF15 is the most sought-after first appearance of a superhero, as Amazing Spider-Man comics are the world's most collected.

Ironically, it was a very successful Marvel experiment, and sold very well, making it probably less rare than some of the other early 1960s Silver Age Marvel comics. But demand is so great among collectors that the prices continue to soar.

If you have found a copy of AF15 in your comic book collection, or inherited one from a relative, then you're in luck.

This comic is a great find, and certainly worth in the thousands of Dollars if complete.

Value of Amazing Fantasy 15 Comic

Here are the record sales for each CGC grade level.

Prices for AF15 have continued to beat the stock market, and almost every other mainstream investment!

Amazing Fantasy 15 is only the third comic book to break $1m. The other two are Action Comics #1 ($3.2m) and Detective Comics #27 ($2.1m).

At the time the record-breaking comic sold, it was the single highest graded, at CGC 9.6. There are now three copies at that grade.

As this comic sold well, who knows how many other high-grade examples are out there, waiting to be discovered?

Marvel chipping (scoop-shaped color loss along the edges of the comic) is very common on certain 1960s books, including AF15.

Below is an example. Apart from creasing and kids drawing on the book, this is the most common problem with discovered copies of this comic.

Warning: Fake AF15s Being Offered!

You can see the label on this book has been faked.
