    This issue ramped things up even more than the previous issues. Previous arcs fell into the trap of spending too much time setting up the story, but this arc has been jumping right into plot twist after plot twist, and it's amazing. Spurrier is definitely ending his run with a bang (and Wijngaard's art is amazing too, even if it's no Laiso art). This issue was Doctor Aphra at it's best, and I can't wait for the finale in a couple weeks, as well as the finale for this era of Marvel Star Wars the week after that, and Aphra's relaunch in a few months.

    I continue to enjoy Doctor Aphra a lot but at the same time I kind of wish it was a different book. Spurrier keeps the arc moving along nicely with a lot of good chemistry moments between Tolvan and Aphra that I wish was being explored more rather than this on-again/off-again thing. I'm also really enjoying Tolvan's discovery of hope and aligning with the Rebels and want more of that. Wjingaard has another strong issue here and I definitely like what he brings to the table as Roughridge knows exactly how to bring it to life through color. The brief makeout sequence is just fantastic for color design. Read Full Review

    The Doctor Aphra series has long struggled with a cohesive narrative by giving us too many irrelevant characters and plot points, with the events of this penultimate issue hopefully serving as a means to strip away what's unnecessary for a satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review
