When we are talking about key comics almost nothing speaks louder than “The Amazing Spider-Man #1”. Even though not Spider-Man’s first appearance which was within “Amazing Fantasy #15”, this issue is probably one of the silver age key comics.

The Amazing Spider-Man quickly became one of the teenage favorites due to the similarities and quickly proved himself as a superhero that is here to stay.

Another interesting point with The Amazing Spider-Man #1 is that there are no extreme first appearances in play here except Daily Bugle editor-in-chief John Jonah Jameson and the villain Chameleon.

The Amazing Spider-Man #1 Comic Value

Amazing Spider-Man #1 might not be Spider-Man’s first appearance but certainly it doesn’t come cheap. With sales that reach up to $300.000 on the highest spectrum of graded copies to low $2000 or $3000 depending their grade.

Lettering: John Duffy
Cover Price: 12c

There is a reason why The Amazing Spider-Man #2 is a key issue in the series, and we pretty much talked about it before. It feels the void Amazing Spider-Man #1 left behind.

With Spider-Man started to gain huge popularity, Marvel needed to bring forward some bad guys for him to beat as all superheroes do. The Amazing Spider-Man #2 brings forward not just one but two of them and it marks the first appearance of the Vulture as well as the Tinkerer.

Along with the two new super villains we get to know how Peter Parker is shooting webs by seeing the gadgets that he build up close.

Having said that, ASM #2 can be a much more affordable investment in your collection with prices that start from $300 to $500 in lower grades and up to $130,000 in the higher spectrum.

The Amazing Spider-Man #2 Comic Value

  • Poor (0.5): $550
  • Fair/Good (1.5): $625
  • Good/Very Good (3): $1,200
  • Very Good/Fine (5): $1,750
  • Fine/Very Fine (7): $3,000
  • Very Fine/Near Mint (9): $11,500

Stan Lee was on fire with The Amazing Spider-Man and we can see it issue after issue. The Amazing Spider-Man #3 marks the first appearance of Dr. Octopus which would be one of Spider-Man’s most powerful (as the cover implies) foes’ indeed.

Dr. Oc first appearance is in constant demand and he also was very beautifully portrait by Alfred Molina in Spider-Man 2 which surely helped the prices quite a bit.

The Amazing Spider-Man #3 Comic Value

  • Poor (0.5): $475
  • Fair/Good (1.5): $650
  • Good/Very Good (3): $1,250
  • Very Good/Fine (5): $2,250
  • Fine/Very Fine (7): $3,900
  • Very Fine/Near Mint (9): $11,500
  • Near Mint + (9.6): $82,000

The Amazing Spider-Man #4

Amazing Spider-Man couldn’t be a better comic series in it’s days. One great villain after the other was being introduced and within The Amazing Spider-Man #4, The Sandman made his first appearance.

Sandman just as Doc Oc. has been the main antagonist of Spider-Man in the Spider-Man 3 in 2007 and was portrayed by Thomas Haden Church. As you would expect from a villain that was portrayed in a movie as well, his first appearance is one of the hot Spider-Man comics with prices that begin as low as $150 to $200 and reach as high as $77,000.

  • Poor (0.5): $300
  • Fair/Good (1.5): $425
  • Good/Very Good (3): $675
  • Very Good/Fine (5): $1,100
  • Fine/Very Fine (7): $2,400
  • Very Fine/Near Mint (9): $9,000
  • Near Mint + (9.6): $77,000
