    Anyway, I absolutely loved this issue of Doctor Aphra and am, as always, eagerly anticipating the next one. I cannot recommend this comic highly enough to any fans of Star Wars or even just general space adventures. Read Full Review

    The most original character of the Star Wars universe continues to shine as she wrecks havoc while pilfering treasures. The story is fantastic and the visuals sensational. This is the Star Wars comic you're looking for. Read Full Review

    Writer Si Spurrier is seemingly everywhere in the comics industry lately, but he may have found his real sweet spot as co-writer on this series. Spurrier's sardonic voice complements that of co-writer Kieron Gillen, resulting in an issue that's very much in line with what's come before even as it pushes Aphra in wackier and more ambitious directions.

    With a lot of good character material in the mix, the big reveal comes toward the end as we discover what it is that Triple-Zero is actually after. And it's one of those moments that makes me genuinely afraid of what could come of things if he actually gets what he's after, much like Aphra's afraid I'm sure. You can imagine the wheels turning in her head how to turn this to her advantage while still looking compliant though. There's a lot of action in this book that works, some humor that just feels a little too forced, and a bit of romance that was spot on fun and right where the book has been angling toward for some time now. It's a fun read for the most part and I like the uncertainty of where it's going. Combine that with great visuals from the artists and it's one of those books I look forward to each month easily..
