Star Wars Droids #1 from Dark Horse Comics was one of the best droid starring comics they published during their run with the comics license. Especially that cover. All black with C-3PO and R2-D2, this is a notoriously tough comic to get in any kind of good shape, which makes this CGC 9.8 copy taking bids at Heritage Auctions all the more impressive — Heritage last sold a CGC 9.8 copy six years ago. Speculators have been going nuts on Star Wars comics this past year, though they have not jumped on this one yet. It is only a matter of time though. This copy is sitting at only $32 right now, so there is a huge deal to be had here. Check it out below.

Despite their differences, See-Threepio and Artoo-Detoo know that the best way to survive is to stick together. Thank the maker!"
This is one of only 67 copies on the CGC census in a 9.8, so this one is pretty tough to get. And at this price, how can you possibly pass it up? I cannot believe how low it is right now.
