Months before the first Star Wars movie had even arrived in theaters, Marvel Comics' STAR WARS #1 hit the stands, and introduced eager readers to a galaxy far, far away! Its cover asked: 'Luke Skywalker: Will he save the galaxy or destroy it?' - and inside, readers eager to know the answer joined Luke on the first, fateful steps of his epic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the very heart of the Rebellion! This opening chapter of Marvel's adaptation of George Lucas' cinematic masterpiece features the debuts of some of the most beloved characters in cinematic history - including Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, and of course, the ruthless enforcer of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader! It's one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting STAR WARS (1977) #1. Rated T

"This is 3.99?"
Yup. It's a steal.
"Doesn't that say $225.00 behind you?"
It does. That is a first print, a mid-upper grade copy, not even a NM copy. This book has the same contents, the original ads, columns, colors, covers, all on better paper. It also happens to be the single most important comic adaptation of a movie ever, is actually really good with great script to visual interpretations by Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin, and has deleted scenes IN THE BOOK!!
"I don't know...$3.99 seems a little pricey for something that was thirty cents 42 years ago."
"Hey, this guy behind the counter fell down or something. Does anybody know the number for 911?"
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
