    A crew of mercenaries causes troubles and an Imperial gets closer to the truth in this sensational installment. All the characters are fantastic and the visuals are drool worthy. A good entry point issue for newcomers to Aphra's outings and an excellent issue for those who've been following since the beginning. Contains the most fearsome original villain in Marvel's Star Wars run. A can't miss issue! Read Full Review

    Doctor Aphra #15 is a fun read full of scummy yet lovable characters with solid artwork to boot. It engrosses you very quickly, and I highly recommend it. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    It also leans into some fun things established elsewhere with Thanoth and Vader that will likely turn things back toward Vader himself at the end with Aphra and I'm kind of hoping that the series will find itself a solid conclusion eventually with Aphra and Vader facing off. And as positive as I am about this franchise I hope it's one that ends with her death at his hands because that's where it feels like it needs to go. Watching the journey toward that kind of likely encounter with all the ups and downs she has to face is definitely engaging. Read Full Review

    This is at its best when focused on Amphora's Imperial nemesis/potential love interest Lieutenant Tolvan, whose fortunes rapidly rise and fall over the course of the story. It's also a real treat to see Triple Zero back in action, particularly now that he's more enemy than ally to Aphra. Unfortunately, the cast of scoundrels writers Kieron Gillen and Si Spurrier cook up for this issue don't prove very memorable. Read Full Review
