Star Wars collectors: there is a hell of a good bundle of CGC-graded Marvel series books taking bids at Heritage Auctions today. Five comics in all are in this bundle, including two copies of #39, the beginning of the Empire Strikes Back adaptation, in 9.2 and 9.4. The other awesome book here, though all four are great, is a CGC 9.2 copy of issue #35, the iconic Darth Vader chess cover. That one is arguably the most famous cover from that original Marvel run and has become a very sought-after comic in good shape. This bundle is currently sitting at only $145 right now, criminally low. Check them out below.
