Modern Marvel: Five Below Star Wars Special Edition #1

The Five Below Star Wars Special Edition #1 became available to fans on Force Friday.

Five Below Star Wars Special Edition #1a - Marvel Comics, U.S. (September 2015)
Like the Five Below Star Wars: Darth Vader Special Edition #1, the easiest way to identify this comic is the words "Special Edition", the cover price of $8.99, and the back cover ad for the Princess Leia trade paperback due in November 2015.

I believe these regional Five Below exclusives flew under the radar of many Star Wars comic collectors, myself included.  Even if collectors did know about them, there are two things that work against these comics becoming valuable; they are reprints and have a high cover price.  Copies have been selling for $5 - 15 on eBay.
