Everyone is celebrating Star Wars today, from Disney+to that purse company my wife likes. Marvel is getting in on the action by releasing the first issue of their new Star Wars: Doctor Aphra series on digital today.
Physical copies won’t arrive in comic shops until May 27, in the first wave of Marvel titles scheduled to hit comic shops since the coronavirus shut down Diamond Comics Distributors.
The comic is by Alyssa Wong and Marika Cresta, and, as the title might give away, stars Doctor Aphra, the character created by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca during their run on Darth Vader. She’s kind of a mix of Han Solo and Indiana Jones, without the moral code. The story is set between the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and involves Aphra going after “the score of a lifetime.”
You can download the first issue from comiXology now.
