•  DOCTOR APHRA's reunion with her FATHER would've be a happy affair - if he wasn't a pompous blowhard set to take her job as the Empire's chief archaeologist.
•  Of course, her dear old dad will have to survive Imperial Interrogation first, and which pair of charming psycho-droids do you suppose DARTH VADER has hired for the job?
•  And what happens when the ancient stones of a long-lost Jedi Temple cast their ghostly influence upon the Dark Lord of the Sith himself...?

    The issue ends on another stinger, just in time to save Aphra's dad from being killed. I really loved this issue; taking a different turn from previous stories was the perfect move, and Vader getting his own great moment was icing on the cake. The art from Caspar Wijngaard has been stellar too; it's more stylized than the art of my Emilio Laiso (my favorite artist that's worked on Aphra), but I think that's a good thing. I'm really looking forward to the rest of this final arc, as well as the relaunch next year. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 12, 2019

    The Doctor Aphra series has had a lot of ups and downs but it's in that place now where I really like it. As much as the crazy stuff is fun, there's something about this kind of tension that we get mixed in with some really fun reveals and a sense of impending doom. Spurrier keeps the book fairly personal and intense for Aphra as she deals with trying to keep her father alive – and then realizing she's on the line as well – while Wijngaard puts together a great looking book. It flows well, the designs look great, and just the big moment in the altar room is fantastic. It's sometimes the small moment visuals like that which deliver the best. Read Full Review

    As far as the actual story is concerned, this book feels a little like it's spinning its wheels to get readers ready for a potentially fulfilling finale, leaving us to wait and see if this installment's storyline stagnation was worth it. Read Full Review
