Star Wars: Doctor Aphra (2020-) #8 by Alyssa Wong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another fun, action packed issue of Doctor Aphra.
I’m still enjoying the dynamic between Aphra and Sanna Staros, they go well together.
I could do without the constant High Republic references in all of the current non-High Republic Star Wars comics though. Don’t get me wrong, I’m really enjoying the High Republic, but sudden references to the Nihil everywhere there have previously been none feel odd…and take me right out of the story.
There’s not a whole lot of plot going on in this book at the moment…something about a hyperdrive that everyone’s after…but it’s still a lot of fun. And the Ortolan bartender at the start of this issue was a nice addition. But I’m a big fan of Ortolans.
