Marvel’s Star Wars comic era began four years ago as the Star Wars #1 comic broke records with over a million copies sold. Now, before the highly-anticipated final episode Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters, eBay is releasing limited copies of what will be the last comic in the series, Star Wars #75, with an exclusive variant cover designed by artist R.B Silva. The comic will be available to shop beginning November 20 via www.ebay.com/starwars75.
“Through our ongoing partnership with Marvel and MyComicShop, we’re giving everyone, from long-time fans to new collectors, access to exclusive comics from some of the most beloved Star Wars moments as the episode comes to an end,” said Sam Bright, VP and GM of Merchandising. “This holiday, shoppers can find rare and new comics and millions of other Star Wars collectibles spanning 42 years of the film’s history on our marketplace for the ultimate fan on your gift list.”
“When we heard that Marvel's current Star Wars comic book series would be drawing to a conclusion with issue #75, we jumped at the chance to bring an exclusive cover variant to eBay. We're grateful to comic artist R.B. Silva, who totally crushed it with his cover art,” said Conan Saunders, VP of Mycomicshop. “With a few more weeks until Rise of Skywalker hits theaters, some good Star Wars comic reading is just what the protocol droid ordered. You can find all your Star Wars comic collecting needs, including this awesome variant, in the MyComicShop eBay store."
The comic will be available in limited quantities only on eBay for $5.99 with free shipping. The exclusive cover design was created in partnership with Marvel and eBay seller MyComicShop, who commissioned artist R.B Silva to bring the story to life. With more graphic novels coming to the big screen, comics are becoming increasingly popular on eBay, with a nearly 30% spike in sales over the past year. There more more than 33,000 listings for Star Wars comics alone on the marketplace.
The holiday season is a great opportunity to give comic collectors something they will really love. eBay has all the brands, genres and issues any fanboy or fangirl could ever want, many of which are hard-to-come-by titles that appreciate over time.
