When 20th Century Fox approached Stan Lee in 1977 to produce a comic adaptation of its upcoming epic space-opera, he was understandably hesitant. However, Lee’s decision to create a Star Wars comic book ultimately paid off: the film became an overnight sensation and sales of the comic book series saved Marvel from financial ruin. Rally’s #STARWARS1 is a rare 35-cent variant copy of Star Wars #1 graded VF/NM 9.0 by CGC. Marvel produced only ~1,500 copies of the more expensive 35-cent variant to use in test markets and this #STARWARS1 is one of the top 50 graded examples in existence.

“… [I]t is inarguable that the success of the Star Wars comics was a significant factor in Marvel’s survival…”

— Jim Shooter, Former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief
