STAR WARS Doctor Aphra Returns in New Ongoing Series!!
Doctor Aphra is back in a new ongoing series from MARVEL.
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!
Writer Kieron Gillen (Star Wars Darth Vader) and artist Kev Walker (Marvel Zombies) will be teaming up to bring the first ongoing series starting an original Star Wars character who made their debut in the comics. “What I wanted to do was show what makes Aphra tick,” says writer Kieron Gillen, in an interview with StarWars.com. “That’s the work I feel I’ve got to do with the character, and that kind of push and pull she has between the stuff she does, which is good and bad”.
I’m glad that Aphra and her two murderous droids lived through the events of Darth Vader #25 and I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store for her. She’s a SPACE ARCHAEOLOGIST and I didn’t think I needed that story in life but I do! I can’t wait to see more of 0-0-0- and BT-1!! I’m not sure what that says about me and my fondness for those two droids.
So be sure to visit your local comic shop and add Star Wars: Doctor Aphra to your pull list.
