Star Wars: NEW Doctor Aphra No. 1 Released On Digital
Doctor Aphra is back, True Believers!
And, while most comics are shut down because of COVID-19, Marvel released Darth Vader’s “favorite” archeologist on digital. It just happened to be timed with #MayThe4th, ‘natch.
Doctor Aphra has captivated the minds of Star Wars fans since her first appearance in the pages of STAR WARS: DARTH VADER, and now her new ongoing comic series will be getting a special digital-first comic release in celebration of May the Fourth! Check out STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #1, on-sale NOW in the Marvel Comics App and Marvel Digital Comics Shop!
Written by Alyssa Wong with art by Marika Cresta, the series equips Doctor Aphra with both a new crew and a new mission set in the aftermath of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. With the Rebel Alliance back on the run after their defeat at the Battle of Hoth, it’s never been a more dangerous time for outlaws, scoundrels and the errant rogue archaeologist to make their way in the galaxy. But after a string of bad luck and near escapes, Doctor Aphra has been keeping a low profile—jobs are scarce and credits scarcer. But the promise of the score of a lifetime is just too good for her to pass up.
To add the printed comic to your home collection, STAR WARS DOCTOR APHRA #1 will be on-sale 5/27 at your local comic shops.
