Welcome back to Comics from Around the Galaxy. This week we only have one new book to talk about, along with a trade paperback. Let’s get to it!
Doctor Aphra #18
I don’t know about the rest of you but Doctor Aphra has been hands down my favorite Marvel Star Wars comic since Disney acquired the brand. This comic is a perfect example of how to do a new character in a Star Wars universe but at the same time make it feel as though it is a part of the larger picture of the galaxy.
“REMASTERED’ CONTINUES! Doctor Aphra is being blackmailed by Triple-Zero to run missions for his underground crime syndicate – but that doesn’t mean she can’t cause trouble and have fun along the way! Sometimes that fun means infiltrating Rebellion training grounds.”
This comic continues to be such a fun ride. The interaction of Aphra with Hera was spot on last month. I can’t wait to see the continued interaction of these two great characters during this time in the timeline.
Star Wars Adventures Forces of Destiny Trade Paperback
“Celebrate the inspiring stories of Princess Leia, Rey, Padme, Ahsoka, and more in this exciting graphic novel that covers every corner of the Star Wars universe! Plus, an all-new story featuring soon-to-be favorites from The Last Jedi, Rose and Paige! These stories are presented by a wide array of talent from across Star Wars novels, comics, and animation, including Delilah S. Dawson, Elsa Charretier, Beth Revis, and Jody Houser”.
If you have been enjoying the Youtube shorts “Forces of Destiny” then this is the comic for you. As someone that this show is not marketed to directly I have actually enjoyed these shorts a lot more than I thought I would.
With having a one year old daughter I love to see more content like this that is geared toward getting younger kids interested in Star Wars. The saga movies are not always the most relatable to a younger generation so these stories serve an important role in getting these generations involved.
