From the news source:
"PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A comic collector has been caught in Spider-Man's web, paying $1.1 million for a near-mint copy of "Amazing Fantasy" No. 15,
which features the wall-crawler's debut. The issue, first published in 1962, was sold Monday by a private seller to a private buyer, ComicConnect.com
chief executive Stephen Fishler told The Associated Press on Tuesday."
and continues on to say:
"It's not the highest price ever paid for a comic book, an honor that goes to "Action Comics" No. 1 with Superman on the cover, which went for $1.5
But Fishler says the price paid is the most for a book from the Silver Age, the mid-1950s to about 1970.
"The fact that a 1962 comic has sold for $1.1 million is a bit of a record-shattering event," he said. "That something that recent can sell for that
much and be that valuable is awe-inspiring."
This is amazing in my opinion that such a recent comic book would sell for such a high amount!
Wondering how many more copies are just sitting around someone's house waiting to be found????
