    Aphra was one of the best things to come out of the original Vader series and when the two are together it works well. Greg Pak knows how to write her pretty well when it comes to playing against Vader but also in how to manipulate Ochi and survive. The dynamic here works well because she knows she's got a sliver of a chance to survive this and is using everything she can and has done in the past to survive. It also helps that Ienco is back on the art duties as I love their take on Vader in how he moves and walks as well as Ochi in the blocky elements of his design. Aphra hits a sweet spot as well and the whole book just comes together so well that I'm excited for what's next after some of the problems of the recent Hidden Empire storyline and its fallout.

    Star Wars: Darth Vader #35 continues with Darth Vader seeking a means to regain control of his mastery of the Force and seeks out Doctor Aphra to aid him. Greg Pak does a good job introducing Dr. Aphra and her history to readers that makes sense to her selfish character, while Raffaele Ienco makes Darth Vader look good in every page and panel, particularly when he's in action. It's not the most thrilling comic but it's enjoyable and sets up more action for the this dark trio in the next issue. Read Full Review
