• With a huge price on their heads, rogue archaeologist DOCTOR APHRA and her murder-droid companion TRIPLE-ZERO are hunted wherever they run.
•  Of all their pursuers, you might think the deadliest danger comes from the EMPIRE-backed cops...or the deranged undead bounty hunter...or the relentless monster trappers - right?
•  Nope. Because the entire population has tuned in to watch the chase through Triple-Zero's eyes, and EVERYONE has a shot at that reward...

    Action, surprises, and a lot of humor make Doctor Aphra a fantastic Star Wars title. I am always enamored with how Spurrier makes Aphra a character a reader can love on one page and then absolutely despise on the next. I'm rooting for her and always hoping her plans fail, leaving few bodies in her wake. The visuals on this are excellent, with the characters emoting beautifully — and that goes for the droids, too. Every contributor to this book is outstanding. This continues to be a favorite title of mine. Read Full Review

    The character work continues to be great. For once it's Triple Zero's sentimentality that gets the duo into trouble, not Aphra's. Seeing the public relations department of the Empire was a fun turn I wasn't expecting, and it's interesting to see how they handle planets like Milvayne that have a relatively low Imperial presence.The art is as great as it always is, I hope that Laiso stays with the series for the long haul. His style really fits and the series demonstrably isn't quite the same without him.I don't have much else to say about this issue. It was enjoyable, no huge events to note yet. Read Full Review

    The halfway mark of most arcs are like this where everything has moved in one direction with a lot of information and setup hitting and then twisting the rug out from under us and putting a new dynamic into spin for the back half. The time between Aphra and Triple-Zero while on the run is great as we see a new aspect of our favorite murderdroid and how he deals with Aphra being aware of it but I also really enjoyed the quieter back half of the book before it goes bananas. I'm curious to see where the rest of this storyline goes and if we can get a "new normal" out of it so that things move forward again instead of just the constant back and forth that it feels like as it needs to be more than just that.

    Now that we're halfway through this arc, it's possible that all the exposition is out of the way and we're allowed to savor the rest of the storyline, or the wave of disorientation could continue to have peaks and valleys in narrative momentum to create an uneven experience. Read Full Review
