Amazing Spider-man 40

Amazing Spiderman issue 40 was published by Marvel Comics with a cover date of September 1966. The story, as always, by Stan Lee, was illustrated by John Romita Sr., and told the origin of the Green Goblin. This copy is estimated to be in a very collectible F+ condition. Most of the criticism of the condition is due to minor edge wear and stress marks along the spine. The pages are still supple with a creamy color, and the centerfold shows no signs of undue wear.
Marvel Comics Group started in 1939 as Timely Publications, and by the early 1950s had generally become known as Atlas Comics. Marvel's incarnation dates from 1961, with the company launching Fantastic Four. The Amazing Spider-Man began publication in 1963 as a monthly periodical and was published continuously until a re-launch in 1999 with a new numbering order. This copy of issue 40 was acquired some years ago for $25 CDN, a shrewd buy then, an even better investment now.
