This might be the rarest Star Wars comic book ever … and it just sold for $3,739 in an eBay auction

VaderDownVariant editions of comic books are sometimes the Superfractors of that world, commanding crazy cash because of their scarcity and, of course, demand for them.

While this copy of Star Wars Vader Down issue No. 1 is not a 1/1 creation, it’s estimated by those in the know to be as rare as a dozen copies because it was only available to dealers who ordered … wait for it … 4,999 copies of the standard book. You buy that many, you get one of these.

The cover is by artist Chip Zdarsky showing rabbit bounty hunter Jaxxon facing off with Darth Vader. (Why? Why not?)

An eBay auction for this book ended just seconds ago at $3,739 after 41 bids. No, really, go look. The seller of this one was Mile High Comics in real-estate rich Colorado, while a previous copy sold by a Michigan-based dealer went for $3,999 via Buy It Now.

(If you’re wondering, shipping was free.)

    If anyone at Marvel Star Wars is reading this, please make a Jaxxon cover a yearly tradition. Sincerely, a reader since 1977.
