LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A rare Spider-Man comic book valued at $15,000 has been stolen from a home in Lincoln, Neb.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/tDR7az ) the comic "Amazing Fantasy No. 15" is the first appearance of Spider-Man and sold for 12 cents in 1962.

Nearly 50 years later, it sells for thousands of dollars and in May, an unnamed buyer purchased a mint condition copy for more than $1 million.

The owner of the stolen comic believes it was taken between Oct. 27 and Monday morning.
