The Comic Collector's Important List Of Spider Man Comics Part 4

Alrighty, I decided to extend or expand this key Spider-Man issue list with a part 4, because it seems I forgot some pretty important Spider-Man comics to be on the hunt for. So let's stop wasting time and get this going!

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1
  •  First appearance of the Sinister Six
Okay, as I've written prior, there's a big buzz about Sony expanding the Spider-Man movie universe basically because all the other studios are doing it and cashing in. Ka-ching!

So, with the announcement of a Sinister Six spin off movie in development, you can guess what's happening with the first appearance of the Sinister Six in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, right?

That's right: homeboy is on the hot burner. Not that this wasn't already an in-demand key issue before. It was, as this is the iconic and most popular super villain team up of some of Spidey's greatest foes ever like Doctor Octopus, The Vulture, Sandman, and Electro just to name a few.

Anyway you wanna slice it, this is a key Spider-Man comic to get, and it's already pretty darn expensive even in lower grades. Higher grades are becoming more and more harder to find.

ebay - A few unslabbed copies in the lower grade realm, and a CGC 4.5 available. There is one CGC high grade copy at a Very Fine 8.0. 

The one CGC 8.5 Very Fine Plus copy I posted in the High Grade Alert section has unsurprisingly already been snagged. If this is key issue comic is high on your list, be sure to click the link and see the ebay search results for this issue.

ComicLink - A whopping CGC 9.8 high grade copy found on ComicLink. Also is an unslabbed VF and a CGC 7.0 FN/VF.

 Amazing Spider-Man King Size Special #5 
  • First appearance of Richard Parker
  • First appearance of Mary Parker 
 Oh, the first appearances of Peter Parker's mysterious parents? Yub, yub and it's in this annual. Actually this was brought to my attention by a fellow reader on my facebook page, so here it is. 

It seems like the Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie is gearing up to reveal Peter Parker's mysterious past and his parents as well, so this book that reveals the first appearance of Richard Parker and the first appearance of Mary Parker (only in flashbacks though) will get a nice boost once more catch on.

NewKadia -  Three unslabbed copies found here. Highest is a VF- low Very Fine, and the others are in the Very Good realm. Not too bad. Just click the blue link if those appeal to you and you'll be directed to the page where you can get this bad boy.

Also, please remember if you've never purchased from NewKadia before, enter the code new4 during checkout to get your discount!
mycomicshop - Three copies here as well. No CGC unfortunately. Highest copy is a FN-, low FN. Really affordable.

ebay - No problem finding unslabbed copies of this Amazing Spider-Man King Size Special on ebay, and they're really cheap now. However, I only saw a CGC 8.0 Signature Series copy signed by Stan Lee on ebay. It's the best time to get this sleeper comic before it gets a huge expected push.

ComicLink - If high grade CGC copies are more in your blood, then ComicLink has some of ASM King Size Special #5 worth checking it out. Highest is a CGC solid NM 9.4, a CGC 9.2 low Near Mint, as well as a CGC 8.5. These are super affordable for silver age key issues.

Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21
  • Wedding Issue
Okay, there's no movie backing up this issue, but it's still a good one to get. Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson's relationship is iconic in the world of Marvel Comics, and this wedding issue solidifies that.

NewKadia - Only two copies left. Highest is a NM-, low NM. The second is a VF-, low Very Fine. If you're looking for cheap key issue comics, there they are just waiting to be snagged. You'll need to scroll near the bottom of the page once you click the NewKadia link above.

ebay - This wedding issue is also a sleeper, and still highly reasonable to get. It's also no trouble finding. Even in high grade CGC copies. Saw a beautiful CGC 9.8 copy in the search results. Just click the ebay link above to be instantly teleported there. 

If you're hunting for high grade CGC Copies, just visit the link to check out the selection on ebay as of this writing. 

ComicLink - Two beautiful CGC 9.8 copies available, as well as two CGC 9.4 copies.

Okie Dokey, I think I'll end it there. Whether I continue in expanding this series, I really don't know. I probably will.

  1. Great list! Noticed that #26 key issue should be #25. Just a typo I guess! Excelsior!
