Spider-Man came to the rescue of an Ohio man whose daughter is soon to be married.
Richard Schaen put his copy of the comic, Amazing Spider-Man No. 1, up for sale on Comiclink.com and is using the money he made to pay for his daughter Jane’s wedding reception, Cleveland.com reports.
The comic, which was released in March 1963, sold on the auction site for $7,900.
“I gave my daughter a promissory note for the money with a picture of the Spider-Man comic, which we can use to pay for a big part of the catering for her reception,” he told the publication.
Schaen, who was an avid comic book collector when he was younger, had accumulated quite a collection.
“I’m in no rush to sell them off. I’ll do it a little at a time.”
Earlier this year, Michael Rorrer found 345 comic books when he was cleaning out his great-aunt's home in Virginia. The books reportedly sold for $3.5 million, with a 1939 copy of Detective Comics No. 27 going for $523,000.
