    I'm really loving this second arc of the series! Aphra continues to shine brighter than any of Marvel's other Star Wars series, though the High Republic started out with a bang too. The art and writing and everything about this issue was great, and I didn't even mention a few smaller things like the short detour to Lucky's subplot (mainly because there's not much to talk about yet) or the non-binary character that works for Domina. I highly recommend checking out this issue, and I can't wait for the next one! Read Full Review

    I'll admit it took a few pages before Andrea Broccardo's artwork click for me with this series but when it did I definitely dug it a lot. It just needed to not be in the middle of an arc as it's jarring from the previous installments as it's so different. It does serve the needs of this chapter well as she really captures the chaos and facial expressions incredibly well and combined with the color work it's just wonderfully done. Kieron Gillen's script keeps things moving and we get new levels of disturbing from our favorite murderbots that have me curious to see what's next for them. Aphra's a bit more background this time around, reacting more than anything else, but what we get is definitely fun and there's a growing humanization to her that Luke is bringing out in some big and surprising ways. More, please! Read Full Review

    Doctor Aphra #7 was yet another fantastic entry in Marvel's latest Star Wars crossover, with "The Screaming Citadel" shaping up to be a fantastic tale. Not only does this third chapter give us some surprising, and not so surprising, twists, but it also continues to build upon this unique narrative nicely. Read Full Review

    Doctor Aphra has managed to convince Sana Starros to help her, but barely. Lucky has found himself a new employer as well. It most likely wont be long before the partners turned enemies will cross paths again. Read Full Review

    "The Screaming Citadel" isn't shaping up to be very notable in terms of plot or its relevance to Luke's quest to become a Jedi Knight, but ti does offer a winning blend of goofy yet high-stakes action and solid character drama. Read Full Review
