The first appearance is not Star Wars #42, but if Star Wars #42 is so loved because it's the first Boba Fett cover, ummm...

Boba Fett sucks.

What makes him so great - what, he's Jabba the Hutt's b***c?

He got taken out like a chump, too.

Who cares.

I still think Marvel Super Special 16 is undervalued currently as it holds the first appearance of Boba Fett and Yoda in a form CGC will slab.

And with Yoda going to be a big part of the next movie series it should continue to hold relevance.

Fett is on both covers right underneath Leia's head. Both came out in 1980. hm

This one's my favorite. Mostly because I'm trying to track down a couple of decent, but not too expensive, copies. These buggers are hard to find, even in Penceland.

When I see these discussions (and I have started a few), I take this stance: suppose there was a car, the first one produced. Its classic, sure. But then a year later, they released the new model and holy cannoli is it a a thing of beauty. So people pay more for it. But there will always be others who take pride in owning the "true" first, the market demands the cooler looking version wins.

Case in point, Hulk 181 vs 180. You gonna try to tell me 180 has a better cover? HA!

ASM 300 vs ASM 299. You gonna still try to argue which cover is better? No Chance (pun intended).

This I feel applies to every case

Fun fact, in Taiwan, "Boba" means a well endowed female. Boba Fett was a female. No shame, just saying it makes more sense. She was more of a lover to Vader who also did his dirty work.

Why is Star Wars 68 expensive?  Is it just the cool cover?

Probably a combination of the cool cover and the fact that other Mandalorians are in the story.

This is art swiped (crudely) from the first page splash to MSS #16 (paperback or mag). If it was new artwork, maybe you'd have a case. As is, no soup for you. :whistle:

Are you saying it's not the first Boba Fett cover?  'Cuz I don't see him on MSS#16.

I'm saying it doesn't qualify as a first cover appearance because it reprints interior page art that had been published prior.

Back in November of last year, this gent was posting this edition in several of the foreign comic groups, and helped/encouraged by some of the members, was making it out to be a first cover appearance. This was my reply then, and it still stands.
