Bleeding Cool is reporting that a copy of Amazing Fantasy 15 recently sold for $1.1 million through a private transaction facilitated by ComicConnect. This makes it the second-highest selling comic book ever (behind last year’s sale of Action Comics #1), and THE highest-selling Silver Age comic book.
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 that features the wall-crawler’s debut. ComicConnect.com chief executive Stephen Fishler told The Associated Press Tuesday that the Silver Age issue, first published in 1962, was sold Monday by a private seller to a private buyer.
