It’s been known for a few months now, but the Star Wars comic book universe is about to get a bit more interesting as Doctor Aphra gets her own comic series.
Written by Kieron Gillen and Kev Walker, Doctor Aphra will focus on her time after being 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!
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 is set to arrive on December 7, 2016.
