Comic books (Comics)/star wars


Hi, I have a star wars comic #5, 1977, and trying to ascertain if it is a first print. I read article but still unclear of which print. Thanks

Hi Gabriel,

If you don't see the word "REPRINT" on the front cover, check the indicia which is located at the bottom margin of the first page.  If it's not a first print, it will say either 2nd Printing in the indicia or something like "this is a reprint of previously published material".

Hope this helps.
