*Marvel: This week’s entry in our Spider-Mania event! When you’re dealing with a comic this significant, none of our usual snappy patter is needed. The fourth issue of Amazing Spider-Man, a Lee & Ditko classic which introduced Spidey to the gentleman who would become one of his most vehement enemies – and just occasionally, a reluctant ally – the shape-shifting Sandman, whose molecular mastery came close to baffling our hero. This exceptional FN- pence copy at £465 is in remarkable condition for its vintage, with vibrant cover colour and gloss, and only faint ‘blunting’ wear at the corners belying a still higher grade. Truly a lovely item, top quality and with the debut of a major villain.
