EDITOR'S REPLY:

Thanks for requesting your comic book appraisal.

Following the explosion in interest in Star Wars merchandise, Marvel sensed an opportunity to sell comics to a new audience.

These 99c for three books were sold in outlets like Toys R Us, where the wildly successful range of toys were marketed to Star Wars-hungry kids.

The barcode was removed. Effectively these are reprints, with a diamond price box. Books were priced 35c or 30c, so depending on which you got in the 99c bag, it was either a bargain or a 10 percent rip-off!

There are lots of types of these books explained at our Star Wars comics price guide.

Typically, these bags of three sell for about $20-60. Click to see items on eBay.

We also recommend you list them on eBay.

Thanks for writing, and please recommend us to your friends.
