Speculation Spotlight: Star Wars Movie Name Boosts Comic Book Sales

Bleeding Cool is reporting that sales for Star Wars #49, titled The Last Jedi and published back in July 1981, have taken off since the latest Star Wars movie name announcement.  While the name is the only thing the movie has in common with the comic, it has not deterred some from bidding up the prices on eBay.  Interestingly, there is a paperback that uses the same name which was released in February 2013 that is not receiving the same consideration as the comic.

This phenomenon is similar to the attention that several Dark Horse comics received that contained the Solo twins Jacen and Jaina and Ben Skywalker leading up to The Force Awakens.
