DEBUT SPIDER-MAN COMIC SELLS FOR $1.1 MILLION:

A near-mint condition copy of the 1962 comic book in which Spider-Man debuted has been sold for $1.1 million.

The “Amazing Fantasy” Number 15 issue was sold Monday (March 7th) by a private seller to a private buyer. ComicConnect.com chief executive Stephen Fishler told AP that although it’s not the highest price ever paid for a comic book — with that record held by the $1.5 million paid for a copy of the 1938 comic book in which Superman debuted — it’s the most for one from the mid-1950s to about 1970, which is known as the Silver Age. It’s usually been comic books from the Golden Age, from the late 1930s to the early 1950s, that draw that kind of money.
