    Doctor Aphra is the closest thing the Star Wars franchise has to an Indiana Jones, so it's only fitting that her new solo comic strikes so many of those same notes. Read Full Review

    Star Wars; Doctor Aphra continues to reinforce for me that Gillen was one of the best people to put on the property. While there are certainly guidelines and story consultations to be had with what's allowed in a property like this, what Gillen and Walker are doing is expanding our understanding of how this all works in an engaging and accessible way so that you can see why the Empire continued to hold power and how your average people grasped the scale of events going on. This issue does some really great stuff in bonding together two big film events on a very human level while still having some great humor mixed in alongside some very fun action sequences that I'd love to see brought to life. Here's your Rogue One sequel foundations. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of Star Wars you gotta read this as it connects to the films nicely. The mission the characters are on is intriguing, their infiltration of Empire controlled base exciting, and the evil robots continue to be a delight. That said, the father/daughter dynamic isn't feeling genuine and Black Krrsantan is way too powerful. Read Full Review

    Kev Walker's art is dim and gritty which fits Gillen's writing but personally, I can't help but ask is there a better style that would've worked better. The styling for Darth Vader personally would make this series slightly better but doing so wouldn't allow for Doctor Aphra to step out of Vader's shadow.Thick penciling dominates the art as the coloring is often dim and on the grayscale. Basic paneling also makes this issue very standard as there is no panel that has that wow factor. Read Full Review

    This is a textbook example of how strong a colorist's input is to a book. Sadly, this book shows how it can be its undoing. This middle chapter moves the story along, but lacks any tension. The visuals could have been so much better. Read Full Review
