Description



Stay ahead of the curve, with this CGC graded Star Wars comic book. Targeted for a young female audience, Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano was introduced in the 2008 animated film "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", and continued in the animated Clone Wars TV series later that year. Following a voice-over in the 2019 blockbuster "The Rise of Skywalker", Ahsoka flashed her lightsaber in the flesh for the first time, in a 2020 episode of the Disney+ streaming series "The Mandalorian", with another turn coming in this year's "The Book of Boba Fett". Casting the powerful and sexy Rosario Dawson to provide the flesh, helped make the Ahsoka Tano character a mainstream hit, building on the high appeal already earned in animation and comic books. This formidable Jedi's popularity is primed for continued growth, with Dawson set to star in the Disney+ live action series "Ahsoka", scheduled for streaming in 2023.


Ready to blast off, is this 2008 Dark Horse Star Wars: The Clone Wars #1 issue, which marks the first appearance of Ahsoka Tano in a comic book. CGC has encapsulated this nicely preserved comic in a Universal Grade holder, with a rating of (9.4, White Pages). Credits on the grading label include "Henry Gilroy story, Scott Hepburn & Don Parson art, Dave Filoni cover". Filoni has a long list of Star Wars related directing, writing, animating, and voice acting credits on his resume, and he is tagged for directing and writing duties for the upcoming Ahsoka series. Also noted on the label is "1st appearance of Ahsoka Tano & Captain Rex in comics". With a great deal of hype building around the 2023 Disney Ahsoka series, demand for this key issue comic is headed for galactic proportions.
