BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!
Following the blockbuster finale of Darth Vader #25, the fan-favorite character begins a new journey in STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #1 - the new ongoing series coming this December! From superstar writer Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader) and fan-favorite artist Kev Walker (Marvel Zombies) comes Marvel's first ongoing series starring an original character created in the comics!
Following her time in the clutches of Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra has barely escaped with her life. If he ever learns of her survival, he'll hunt her to the ends of the galaxy. But for now, it's time for a return to what she does best. With the droids 0-0-0 and BT-1 in tow, she's off in search of rare artifacts from the galactic center to the Outer Rim and everywhere in between. Aphra's got debts to pay after all. Just as long as she can stay one step ahead of the Empire, some Bounty Hunters and just about everyone else in the galaxy!

My word. It seems the boney, bipedal jerky sticks have come up with a new way to disappoint you. They have a perfectly good 2 page story about a droid killing someone, and wrap it on either side with filler about archeology. It's all so much detritus, not unlike the fat cells that make up their bellies and brains. If I were to detail that waste, I suppose I'd have to mention the homage to the opening of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', but doing so would make me need to see how long a bag of human offspring can float before they stop screaming, so I guess I won't do that here. Your little minds couldn't take it.
Highly Recommended, you failing cardiac pumps. Avoid it at your peril.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
