When you hear the phrase “New York Post” and “Amazing Fantasy” your mind immediately leaps to such topics as the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid’s unwavering support for Dubya or dogged interest in Christie Brinkley’s love life, but like the NY Times, the NY Post can now be officially classified as “Comics-loving” as they will be giving away reprints of Amazing Fantasy #15 in this Thursday’s paper (8/17/06).

Gary Dunaier sent scans of the ad trumpeting the event:


  1. The Newark Star Ledger (NJ) will have this book or something similar on Sunday. If this is nation-wide, it will be interesting to see how the release dates vary.

  2. Anyone else think that issue is a strange one to give out for free? Why not the Civil War unmasking of Spider Man or Ultimate Spider Man #1 or an issue of Marvel Adventures? The Ditko art and Stan Lee dialogue are miles away from what someone would find in a contemporary comic unless they’re buying the Masterworks editions so it seems weird someone thought this might attract new readers to comics- perhaps this was more an attempt to spur sales of the paper with lots of morons thinking this issue might be “collectible.”
