The 10 Most Expensive Comic-Books Ever | 8. Amazing Fantasy 15
8. Amazing Fantasy 15

Value: $407,000

What’s it about? The final issue of an ailing anthology – previously titled Amazing Adult Fantasy, which perhaps erroneously suggests costumed antics of a different sort – allowed editor Stan Lee to throw caution to the wind and chuck in a teen hero that nobody was much interested in. And with a thwip!, and an iconic Steve Ditko costume design, Spider-Man arrives. Sales for Amazing Fantasy #15 were consequently unusually high, but it was still cancelled. Spidey got his own comic, The Amazing Spider-Man, seven months later.

Why so valuable? Though the world may have mocked Peter Parker, the timid teenager… it soon marvelled at the awesome might of… Spider-Man!

Superman done correctly should trump Batman. A crossover would be epic, especially if Batman gets to kick the tar out of big blue on the big screen. More
