    The Defiant Ones meets Star Wars as two characters try to survive one another. The story is fun, emotional, and definitely twisted. The visuals are gorgeous, with the art beautiful and the colors joyful. This is an outstanding Star Wars story and an excellent issue to begin this series. Read Full Review

    While the basics of how this arc would go were pretty visible in the previous issue I'll admit I'm curious as to what twists and turns will come with this. Spurrier has taken some odd turns since taking over the series and it's kept it off balance and uncertain in some entertaining ways with an unpredictability. This issue is mostly straightforward, though it leans into the way Milvayne works a bit heavily in a way that doesn't quite work for me. I really liked what seemed like moments of humanity for Triple-Zero and the panic that Aphra works through in trying to stay alive by staying close to her torturer that she previously tormented. I'm definitely curious to see what's next in this arc and if we can get Aphra to a new place where there's some positivity. Read Full Review

    This marks a great jumping on point for new readers, though those of us who have been on the Aphra train for a while are left wanting more. However, the issue's narrative cohesive could hint at a more straightforward storyline then past arcs, which could mark the book finally realizing its potential. Read Full Review

    Overall, it’s a pretty solid issue and a fun start to what I presume will be a great arc. It’s moving at a pretty fast pace and while I have a couple guesses about where the story will go, I’m certain that it will end up surprising me just like the last arc did. I’m really looking forward to finding out! Read Full Review
