PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to add much to the mix here but wanted to say congratulations to the creative team behind “Star Wars” because a fifth printing is really something that is not easily achieved. Sure we might see that happening for a pivotal Spider-Man or X-Men issue or something important that either Batman or Superman did for the other side of the comic book fence. I’ve got my first issue (and first printing) secured in a plastic sleeve with a backing board and can say that its in as close to Pristine Mint as possible. Maybe I will brick this one since a fifth go-round at the printer makes this a potentially hot commodity. What about you readers? Have you read this one? Do you own any of the printings that hit the racks before this one that is coming next month? Chime in down below.
