*Marvel: Despite the many issues of Amazing Spider-Man which have passed through our hands in the last quarter century, we’re always thrilled when an early copy by the ‘real’ Spidey artist, Steve Ditko, comes into our possession, and seldom more so than by this week’s acquisition, the second issue of Amazing Spider-Man, featuring the debut of one of his most enduring enemies, the Vulture! Despite his physically frail appearance, the airborne pensioner has survived numerous deaths, remodels, and replacements by younger counterparts, and the importing of the Vulture into the Spidey cinematic mythos with ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ has enhanced the character’s popularity. This issue also features the premier appearance of the Terrible Tinkerer – no, really – who while less persistent than the Vulture, is still an occasional player in the Spidey mythos. Only Spider-Man’s third-ever appearance anywhere! This is a CGC Blue Label (no restoration) 3.5 (VG- equivalent), on sale at £1,000.
