Spider-Man’s debut commands big cash via Heritage Auctions + gallery of original art still up for grabs


A high-grade copy of an iconic comic book has commanded an impressive sum on the auction block.

It’s one of only 11 copies of Amazing Fantasy No. 15, which is the first appearance of Spider-Man, and it sold for six figures via Dallas-based Heritage Auctions on Thursday night.

How much?
