Simply put, Spider-Man continues to amaze.
This CGC 7.0 copy of Amazing Fantasy No. 15 from August 1962 is the first appearance of Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, in the Marvel Comics universe, and it’s also one of the most-coveted comic books in existence.
This current copy? It’s pushing six-figures with time to go on the auction block.
Hollywood news can have an impact on the collectibles world and comic book movies are the perfect example of what an influx of mainstream pop culture focus can do.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Gambit film starring Channing Tatum is a go for Valentine’s Day 2019, bringing the card-throwing, slick-talking member of the X-Men to the screen solo for the first time.
Just like Deadpool, certain characters pick up steam with fans and news like this prompts added interest in first appearances of the characters and the one-of-a-kind original comic art that helped bring those books to life. A movie with Tatum in the main role? With apologies to Yogi Berra, it could be déjà vu all over again.
