    An excellent conclusion to the first story arc with lots of action, as well as some sweet visuals. Recommended for those who love Star Wars or those who love adventure. Read Full Review

    This issue did leave me all the more disappointed that Gillen didn't do more to flesh out Aphra's current nemesis, Captain Tolvan, but otherwise it wraps up the series' opening arc in strong form. Read Full Review

    Anyway, this issue was very, very good. It did a great job of being a set-up issue that felt contained and important in its own right. In series like Bounty Hunters (and even Star Wars), the set-up issues always feel really slow and boring, but that wasn't the case with this issue at all. The art by the new art team (replacing Marika Cresta's art from the first arc) was really good, the art style really suits the Indiana-Jones tone of the series. I'm super-excited to see where this arc goes in the next issue, more so now that Sana is playing a big role in the story! Read Full Review

    I really like Doctor Aphra. I thrilled to her role in the Darth Vader series and loved her role in the Rebel Jail arc in the main Star Wars series. And the first half of this arc teased some real potential before just kind of veering off in a direction that felt like it petered out. Perhaps it'll read better in full than in singles form down the line. The talent here continues to be top notch but the story just couldn't make it work. It's definitely worth it for the time we do get with Aphra to understand her more as well as some striking artwork, but it has me hopeful that the next arc can right the ship a bit better.
