Hi, what are you looking for?

Amazing Fantasy — Amazing Price!

What would you do with $1.1 million?  How about forking it over to purchase a comic book?

ComicConnect.com just sold a 9.6 graded copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 for $1.1 million, almost quadrupling the previous high price for the book ($227,000 for a 9.4 graded copy in 2007).

I guess with great power, now comes great liability.

Originally sold for 12 cents in 1962, Amazing Fantasy #15 marked the debut of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s Spider-Man.  I’m guessing that the high price paid for the book has something to do with all the troubles facing the new Broadway musical, but I could be wrong.

The highest price ever fetched by a comic book was Action Comics #1, which sold in March for $1.5 million.  $1.1 million for Amazing Fantasy #15, though, is the highest price ever paid for a Silver Age book.

Now if I can just get someone to bid on my copy of Thunderstrike #13, I can finally pay off my mortgage…
