    The stage has also been set for a pretty epic lightsaber battle next issue between Rur (the alleged Jedi Spirit inhabiting a powerful droid body built by Aphra) and Darth Vader. And of course, with Aphra remaining behind to either save some artifacts because she can still be a hero! And rich!, leaving the potential for her to run into her old boss again. Definitely the Aphra plot is still one of the most compelling currently running in the canon, and this issue is not one to miss. Read Full Review

    The high life comes crashing down on Aphra with the arrival of the Lord of the Sith. There's some solid payoffs, ending with a tease of a bigger battle. The visuals are strong, with the colors being impressive. Worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Doctor Aphra does some fun things here as it keeps the arc going as a whole but whittling away at the supporting cast. Which is fine because all those that were introduced in this specific arc were fun but largely one-dimensional. The dealings with her "crew" is what matters and each of those dynamics plays well and true. But it also potentially sets her to be on her own for a bit which will definitely be different from how it's been for her for some time and could be a welcome turn. I won't be surprised if circumstances puts them all back together and working alongside each other out of self interest again sooner rather than later, but I'm hoping for a bit of time with Aphra doing Aphra things and showing us more of this galaxy far, far, away.

    Still, there's a real desperation to the series as Aphra struggles to salvage some small victory from the ruins of her harebrained scheme. And while Kev Walker's art feels a bit more rushed than in previous issues, his eclectic character designs and generally energetic approach help heighten that intensity. Read Full Review
