    The art by Minkyu Jung conveys stong emotions, powerful action and a sense of adventure that's vital to a great Star Wars book. There is world building with new characters on top of classic and new concepts. The book is alway filled with a humor that feels natural and fits the adventurous caper tone of the book. This book is clearly meant to feel a bit like Ocean's 11 and it nails that perfectly even while feeling like a true Star Wars epic. Read Full Review

    Doctor Aphra moves through this storyline a bit more and it's not exactly a big or noteworthy installment in a lot of ways. It's mostly moving things to where they need to be with some progress and getting it ready for the next part. But it works well and I'm particularly pleased to see a little more Nihil material show up here as it makes sense for Aphra's series. It's not something you want to see showing up in every project after being non-existent in all the other material for so long, but pieces arriving after the start of storytelling from that period is a given. Aphra's work with it here feels natural and honest and she's giving it just a bit of mystique as well that works nicely. Read Full Review

    In any case, Aphra and Sana get a diagram of the Path Engine and head to their next stop, an auction on Midaar where a fake Path Engine is being sold. Vukorah's going there too, so it seems that there's finally gonna be a big showdown next issue. This issue was... good. Besides the already-talked-about pacing issue, the rest of the writing was great, and the art from Minkyu Jung and Victor Olazaba was really great. I'm still excited for the next issue though, and looking even further, the series is gonna bereintroducing Durge into Canon, something that should come as a welcome surprise to fans of Dark Horse's Republic comic series and the animated Clone Wars series from Genndy Tartakovsky.

    The highlight of the book is the dynamic between Aphra and Sana, teasing a will-they-won't-they dynamic rivaling that of Leia and Han, which makes Aphra's archaeological adventure all the more engaging. Read Full Review
