Coming up on its 40th anniversary, the Star Wars franchise is going stronger than ever. With recent blockbuster film releases "The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One" topping box office charts, related memorabilia is enjoying enormous popularity. Capture a pair of cornerstone autographs with this graded comic book signed by the male and female leads of the first film of the series.
In 1977 the movie Star Wars: A New Hope took audiences by storm with an army of stormtroopers and a barrage of special effects that raised the bar for film-making while creating a frenzied and fervent fan base. Signed by lead actors Mark Hamill/Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher/Princess Leia, the offered 2015 Hot Topic Edition of Star Wars #1 is a certified blue chip acquisition. Bestowed with a CGC Signature Series label and a grade of (NM 9.4), this authenticated comic is a collecting treasure, with both autographs radiating out of this world ("10") quality.
This pristine comic book issue may prove scarce as is was ordered that all copies be removed from Hot Topic store shelves and destroyed for an unspecified reason. After a brief sales period this edition was removed and eventually the decision was reversed and the surviving copies were offered for sale, with no reports on how many were destroyed. Label notations state this issue was signed by Mark Hamill on 4/17/15 and by Carrie Fisher on 4/18/15.
RIP Carrie Fisher and thanks for bringing Princess Leia to life!
