Comics from Around the Galaxy: August 22, 2018

Darth Vader #20


FORTRESS VADER,’ PART TWO! A thief faces the consequences for their crime. EMPEROR PALPATINE rewards DARTH VADER with three gifts. A thing, a choice and a voice.

Fortress Vader brought the heat last week in part one of what is promising to be an important story. Part one was easily one of the most emotional Star Wars comics in recent memories. Vader hunting Jedi will always carry some weight but to see him strike on down who had a family and a child truly captured the evil he is capable of. Let’s hope that Soule can continue this emotion into part two.


Doctor Aphra #23


GOOD NEWS: THE IMPERIALS HAVE ABANDONED ACCRESKER JAIL. BAD NEWS: FIRST THEY SHOT IT AT A REBEL PLANET. For unscrupulous inmate DOCTOR APHRA, accompanied by former flame SANA STARROS and current flame INSPECTOR TOLVAN…(NB: Awkward.)…chances to escape are dwindling fast. Good thing Aphra’s not distracted by an expensive relic, right? Oh, dear.

Just like I said last month when I previewed Doctor Aphra #22 if you are looking for a crazy Star Wars comic this one is for you. Issue #22 only furthered confirmed that as we now see how group of “heroes” being hurtled toward a planet aboard an abandoned jail which may or not be the home of a Force ghost. I can’t wait to see what this month has in store.
