One of the Holy Grails of comic investing and collecting is without a doubt Amazing Spider-Man #1 from 1963. Okay, it may not be the Holy Grail of Amazing Spider-Man comics like his actual first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15, but this key issue is damn close!

With art by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, this classic is the very first issue to kick off Spidey in his own comic book series and retells his famous origin. It also introduces Jonah Jameson & The Chameleon, as well as the very first Marvel cross over ever, tying with Fantastic Four #12.

It's not an easy find, and the higher the grades the more elusive and expensive this comic is. Copies of this Marvel silver age key issue are even hard to find at mid to lower grades.

But within the Marvel Universe, Spidey is absolutely one of the most popular and well-loved. His movies have all been hits, especially the rebooted Amazing Spider-Man flick, starring Andrew Garfield. Well, prepare for two more sequels to add to the demand of Spider-Man comics.
