    Doctor Aphra #2 is an issue full of careful character development, haunting implications, and equally foreboding artwork. It's the perfect storm, so to speak. Read Full Review

    As we wait to see what direction Disney takes the Star Wars franchise, it's good to know that they are investing in new takes on the universe. We're only two issues into this series, but it's a perfect time to see what can be done with a franchise that often feels restricted and locked into nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 28, 2020

    Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #2 kept the momentum going from the first issue and provided context for the adventure the Ark Angel III crew are on. The chemistry between Doctor Aphra and her entire crew is what drives this issue. Thanks to excellent writing from Alyssa Wong and strong artwork from Marika Cresta this issue kept your interest the entire time. If you are a Star Wars fan then you should be checking out this new Doctor Aphra series out as soon as you can. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - acnbat Jul 22, 2020

    This issue and series are just plain fun. It's a perfect example of why I love comics. It's an escape to another world. I don't have to do any research to figure out what I've read. I can just sit down, read an issue, and pretend for just a little while at least that I'm in a galaxy far, far away! All the Star Wars books are really worth checking out too!! Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Jul 22, 2020

    The first half of the book is a dense read, with exposition shedding light on Aphra's history and her new alliances establishing their rapport with our protagonist, which slows down the pace of the story. Read Full Review
