Star Wars comic 1 sketch Roy Cover

Item: Padmé Amidala sketch on cover of Star Wars #1
Artist: Roy Cover
Publisher: Marvel
Image Size:6 1/4″ x 7 3/4″
Price: $80

Marvel took over publishing Star Wars comics at the beginning of 2015. Issue #1 had over 100 different covers including a blank sketch variant. After missing out on every Topps Star Wars Masterwork sketch card by Roy Cover, I jumped at the chance to buy this larger color sketch where the Senator is depicted in the blue outfit she wore on Tatooine with Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

I purchased this comic on eBay directly from Roy Cover with a Best Offer of $80 on July 14, 2015.

Set: Star Wars Masterwork
Manufacturer: Topps
Price: $150

Every week has a “Snowbunny Wednesday”, so in order to feature the sketch cards of Kimberly Dunaway for a week on Daily Dose of Padmé, it would require a sketch of Padmé in her Ilum attire. However, not only had she not done one, I had not seen that outfit on any of the nearly 200 Masterwork Artist Sketch Cards featuring the former Queen of Naboo. Fortunately, Kim had some blank cards and created this breathtakingly beautiful sketch specially for me.

Obviously, I acquired this card directly from the artist.

Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker travel to Geonosis to attempt to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi, but they are also captured and all three are sentenced to death in an arena with deadly beasts. Padmé’s escapes her restraints, but her attire is ripped by a nexu. Her reunion with R2-D2 on Geonosis does not appear in Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones.

I won an eBay auction for this card on February 27, 2015. Avery Schade’s listing improperly identified Padmé as Princess Leia,

When Padmé Amidala is under the protection of Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker on Naboo, she wears a beautiful, multi-colored dress. Even though we only see the collar and her hair, the look is so iconic that you can tell that this is what she is wearing in the sketch.

I won an eBay auction for this card on February 24, 2015.
