Star Wars Comics 1977 Value?


Quick question: I have Star Wars number 2 the 30 and 35 cent versions and a bunch others... I read your article about the 35c variant being worth much more but after looking on Ebay I say them for around 6 to 7 bucks... totally confused.

Any help is welcome!

Editor's reply: Hi Jeff, thanks for writing. When the Star Wars comics were first published, there was a limited variation in the original price (then 30c) for issues #1 - #4.

Each was distributed in a small geographical region. It's estimated that 1,500 in total of Star Wars #1 was issued with 35c in a SQUARE BOX. The numbers for #2 to #4 are thought to be a little higher, but not more than 3,000 copies.

The cheap ones on eBay are the reprints, re-issued later at the (by then) regular cover price of 35c in a DIAMOND. You may also see the word REPRINT down the top left hand side of the price area.

Hope this clears up your confusion. I've attached photos to illustrate.
