*Marvel: If you’re looking for really nice copies of Amazing Spider-Man for your collection, then look no further than this Collection. All high grade; even the few that fall below VF (and most are above) are really good-looking copies – no duds here, and nearly all cents copies. One of Spidey’s major foes featured in a fondly-remembered and sprawling storyline that ran from Amazing Spider-Man #53-56, wherein Doc Ock becomes a tenant of Aunt May and Spidey loses his memory and joins up with him and a whole lot more happens too. John Romita, always a great cover designer, pulled out all the stops on these issues to produce some lasting fan favourites.
PICTURED: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
#53 VF+ £215 Tight, flat copy, printed without an upper staple (but the lower is firm). Sharp corners, residual gloss, great colour. Supple off-white pages. Virtually no wear, just a couple of very minor signs at edges.
#54 VF+ £200 Tight, flat and fresh with great colour and gloss. Staples firm at spine and centrefold. Sharp corners, very minor handling wear. Lovely white to off-white pages. A couple of tiny white marks over story title blurb hardly matter. SOLD
#55 VF- £225 Beautiful unmarked cover on this iconic issue. Flat and glossy with great colour. Staples firm at spine and centrefold. Sharp corners with just a hint of wear at top left.
