A Tale Of Five Amazing Fantasy #15 Comic Books At Auction

ComicConnect Sponsored

Amazing Fantasy #15 is probably the most significant of all American comic books published in the sixties, featuring as it does, the first appearance of Spider-Man, by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko from Marvel comics. And there are five separate copies up for auction at ComicConnect as part of their Session 2: (Action Comics #1 – DC Comics Presents), which all end on the 22nd of June. In different grades and at different prices, has anyone seen five copies of this comic for sale at the same time in the same auction this century? Let's break down the grades, estimated values, and current bidding at the time of writing because estimated values are being smashed already with days to go. This seems to be the new normal of vintage comic book buying right now.
