In August 1962, with cancellation imminent, Amazing Adult Fantasy was again re-branded as Amazing Fantasy for its fifteenth and final issue. With nothing to lose, publisher Martin Goodman allowed Stan Lee to experiment with a new hero, the amazing Spider-Man. In 1995, editor Danny Fingeroth decided that a gap existed between Amazing Fantasy #15 and its logical successor, Amazing Spider-Man #1. Marvel then published Amazing Fantasy #16-18, written by Kurt Busiek and painted chiefly by Paul Lee, filling the gap.
