I’ve Read Two Doctor Aphra Comics: Here Are My Thoughts

I’ve heard of Doctor Aphra for a while now after the character grew in fame among the fandom thanks to her fascinating storyline in the wider universe. She’s crossed the paths with the likes of Vader, Luke Skywalker, Hera Syndulla, and that’s just to name a few.

So I finally read a couple of her comics and I like her but I’m not a fan…yet.

Doctor Aphra is a character who just doesn’t give a ****. Excuse my language. She looks for relics, seemingly always finds herself in the wrong company, and yeah, she can get the ladies as well. She’s kind of cool in the regard that she is just so nonchalant and hilarious about everything but she’s also a bit annoying because she talks soooo much.

It’s like she’s moving at a million miles an hour and never slows down. I tried to read two of her comics back to back but geez, I was exhausted by the time I got three-fourths of the way through the comic you see above.

Would I love for her to show up in a series like The Bad Batch? Yes. Yes, I would. But will I be rushing to get more of her comics? If I run into some more I’ll pick them up but ultimately, I’ve spent enough time with her character to know she isn’t one of my favorites.

But her comics (Doctor Aphra and the Enormous Profit and Doctor Aphra Vol. 3) were entertaining, just a little tiring.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day. May the Force be with you.

These Two ‘Star Wars’ Comics Are So Good!

I’ve just recently gotten into reading Star Wars comics and it’s kind of amazing. I got four comics from my local library and I’ve read two so far: Star Wars: Vader-Dark Visions and Star Wars Vol. 9: Hope Dies. Both left me kind of shook.

Star Wars: Vader - Dark Visions (2019) Chapter 1 - Page 12

Dark Visions is Vader at his finest as we see a few different stories told from another person’s point of view about the dark-clad warrior of the Force in the same writing style as The Legends of Luke Skywalker. But, this being Vader and all, the stories were either gruesome, creepy, or both.

I personally loved flipping through the comic’s pages dazzled by the art and the darkness that seemed to emanate from every panel. It was so good!

Here are Two Comic Strips To Have You Pumped for ‘Star Wars’

My sister and I love Star Wars, as you can probably tell, and we’re both very excited for The Mandalorian and The Rise of Skywalker. My sister, being an artist, gets to celebrate this franchise in exciting ways through art and recently she’s begun to take certain characters and make comic strips for them. And because they’re awesome I wanted to share them. Enjoy!
