Amaz­ing Fan­tasy #15

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

Spi­der-Man swung into ac­tion for the very first time in Au­gust 1962, at the hands of writer/edi­tor Stan Lee and leg­endary artist Steve Ditko. The comic book was, of course, Amaz­ing Fan­tasy #15, the fi­nal is­sue of what had been an an­thol­ogy se­ries fea­tur­ing mon­ster sto­ries. The Marvel Age had al­ready be­gun with the Fan­tas­tic Four and the Hulk, but the cover of that comic, with Spi­der­Man swing­ing through the New York sky­line, a ter­ri­fied crook un­der his arm, is rightly one of the most iconic in comics his­tory. Peter Parker the teenage wallflower, bit­ten by a ra­dioac­tive spi­der… This is where it all be­gan.
