Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra by Alyssa Wong
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Well, this was definitely an improvement over recent and a step in the right direction.
Pretty much a standalone story in which Aphra and Sanna encounter a star ship in which everyone’s dead, killed by a bunch of parasitic alien beasties. They arrived at the ship because they were tracking someone down, and that certain someone was also being tracked by a bounty hunter…a bounty hunter known as Durge.
Now, Durge originally turned up in the now non-canon Genndy Tartakovsky animated Clone Wars series. A Boba Fett like badass bounty hunter that, I have to confess, I never really liked. This issue marks Durge’s return to canon, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing him again.
In terms of the War of the Bounty Hunters, this issue served to get an invitation to the auction for Han Solo’s frozen form into the hands of Doctor Aphra, and promises to more fully tie us into the crossover going forward.
