Original art to AMAZING FANTASY #15 donated to Library of Congress!


A couple of you sent me this several weeks ago, but I've only recently had the opportunity to post it. An anonymous donor gave the Library of Congress ALL of the original art to Marvel Comics' AMAZING FANTASY #15, which includes the very first 8-page Spider-man story by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee!

“Spider-senses” all around the Library were set tingling when we learned that the Library had just acquired 24 pages of original 1962 drawings from “Amazing Fantasy #15,” which marked the first time the world’s most famous web-slinger, Spider-Man, would appear in print anywhere. The Spider-Man origin story in “Amazing Fantasy” was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko; the pages are Ditko originals, complete with pencil erasures and white-out opaquing fluid.

There remains some question of ownership, as there is a possibility these were originally stolen...

I would imagine this may be some of the most valuable comic book original art ever... keep your crayons away from it!
