    I continue to enjoy the character of Doctor Aphra but the stories that she's ending up in are subpar and have been for a while. There are moments where things go big and crazy, which are fun, but a lot of it feels more like the last arc where it just doesn't resonate as it's too much slapdash of inanity. I do like having Krrsantan back in the picture because Aphra works best with a crew and we've had that slashed to the bone recently. The various artists do a solid enough job with their individual pages but as a whole it's just not as strong continuity-wise which makes it problematic when you slow down and really look at the style and details.

    This issue is a typical mid-arc story. Its main purpose is to simply put the characters together with a common goal that will build to the climax. It will be interesting to see what Aphra's motley new team will go through before this arc is done, and with the preview of the next issue showing Aphra smirking in an Imperial uniform, things are bound to get more complicated before they there.

    Devout fans of the character will surely appreciate this issue, as we learn key elements of her backstory, despite the issue's actual narrative being relatively lackluster. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Aug 17, 2019

    This book seems determined to get itself cancelled. The story is okay, though the flashbacks contribute nothing to the story in the present. The visuals are a fiasco. They are too dissimilar and only draw attention to whichever artist is doing a lackluster job. The colors are also not good. This was the strongest Star Was title published by Marvel, but has fallen to the worst. This series cannot survive looking like this. Read Full Review
