Press Release - July 6, 2005

Heritage to Offer Pristine Copy of Amazing Spider-Man #1!

DALLAS, TEXAS: Heritage Comics Auctions (HCA) will offer one of the finest existing copies of the landmark comic book The Amazing Spider-Man #1, CGC-graded NM+ 9.6 with off-white pages, in their upcoming Signature Auction, to be held August 12-13, 2005, in Dallas, Texas.

"This is, without a doubt, one of the most significant comic books to be published in the last 50 years," said Ed Jaster, Director of Acquisitions for HCA. "There are so many firsts contained in this issue, it's hard to count them all: the first appearance of Spider-Man in his own comic, the first appearances of J. Jonah Jameson, John Jameson, and the Chameleon, the first appearance of the Fantastic Four outside of their own comic...the list goes on and on. Add to that the fact that this is one of the nicest copies of this book known to exist - the CGC Census reveals that only one copy in the world surpasses this radiant beauty - and you have a comic that is certainly going to be one of the high points of our upcoming auction."

"Ever since Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man film hit the theatres," Jaster said, "the world has been caught in the web of Spider-mania. Ol' Web-Head is more popular today than he's ever been, and with Spider-Man 3 - sure to be another blockbuster success - on the horizon, I don't see any sign of that popularity slowing down. This is a great opportunity to capture a true prize, and some lucky bidder is going to walk away from this auction with some pretty serious bragging rights."

This comic book carries a pre-auction estimate of $100,000.
