A comic book that introduced the world to Spider Man headed for the auction block.

FOX's Lisa Lacerra reports:

A 1962 debut edition of a Spider Man comic book that originally sold for a mere 12 cents, could fetch $400,000 or more at auction later this month.

The seller, who's currently unemployed, bought it for $1,200 back in 1980. One auction expert saying the comic called 'Amazing Fantasy #15' is one of about $5,000 in circulation, but this copy's is in mint condition.

The seller saying he wants to use any money from the sale to buy his late father's vegetable farm on New York's Long Island.
