Star Wars Vader Down #1 14999 Zdarsky Sketch Cover CGC 9.8 1243242003
Hooked on books since'76, we specialise in rare, key, recalled, signed & graded comic books. Star Wars: Vader Down #1. This is the 1 in 4,999 retailer incentive variant, with a mostly black and white cover by Chip Zdarsky, featuring Vader and Jaxxon. Rumour has it that it was produced to parody DC comics who had promoted a 1 in 5,000 retailer incentive variant of Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1. Vader Down made it to retailers first, a week before Dark Knight III, with many variants, including a full color Zdarsky variant. Mile High Comics certainly commissioned an exclusive edition (5,000 copies with barcode 75960608368 00144) as did Dynamic Forces (Olivier Coipel variant limited to 15,000 copies as well as a more limited "pure line art" variant), interestingly the quantities of two of those just so happen to be equally divisible by 5,000. Assuming Marvel printed the 1:4999 variants to order always a very questionable assumption! , they are incredibly rare and prices are likely to remain high especially given the success of the latest film in the series, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, generating even more interest in the ever popular space saga. For peace of mind, every comic book is fully insured.
