In 1962, Amazing Fantasy #15 introduces Spider-Man, one of Marvel's most popular characters, to the public for the first time, with Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby's action-packed cover art a clear advertisement of Peter Parker's superpowers.
Illustrator Alan Quah and sculptor Mufizal Mokhtar's thrilling interpretation sees Spider-Man, cast in pewter and gilded in 24K gold, leap from the cover, the bonded porcelain figure of a terrified mobster firmly in his grasp.
In 2011, the landmark issue, which tells the webslinger's origin story, becomes the second comic book to cross the US$1 million threshold at auction.
Malaysians Quah and Mufizal, both highly respected by the international comics and collectibles communities, collaborated on this limited edition.
Comes in Official Marvel Licensee packaging.
Limited to 200 pieces.
Size approx. 22 x 17 x 20 cm
