Modern Marvel: Star Wars Previews

At the Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, 2 different versions of the Star Wars Previews #1 were distributed.  One preview has a Star Wars: Lando ad on the back and the other has the Max Ride: First Flight Preview #1 on the other side.  This version with the Max Ride preview was also distributed at New York BookCon 2015.

Max Ride: First Flight Preview #1 back
The 4 Star Wars comics featured in this book are Star Wars #1, Darth Vader #1, Princess Leia #1, and Kanan - The Last Padawan #1.  The comic pages from these issues are used to promote the first trade paperbacks for these 4 titles that are coming out later this year.  The front cover and Star Wars pages inside both versions of this comic are identical.  The version with the Max Ride preview has more pages.  Neither version seems to be harder to find than the other and both seem to sell for around the same price on eBay.

These 2 issues should not be confused with the Marvel Previews which came with the Previews magazine and features 5 pages from Star Wars #1 but is mostly non-comic page ads for Marvel's entire comic line.
