    Doctor Aphra is a series that I dug a lot when it first started; unfortunately, the longer it’s gone on, the more I’ve found its shine to be steadily wearing off, to the point that I now find myself myself continuing to read it more out of habit than any real interest or excitement in seeing where it’s going. I think part of my problem with the series is with Aphra herself: I’ve never really found her to be a particularly enjoyable or int...

    This was weird. It just didnt hit any of the same fun highs as Vol 1 and 2. Yes the writer was a duo for some of the issues and the final issue it was taken over but I felt the actual story was just really quite dull and convoluted. However the art was probably the best I've seen so far.

    Doctor Aphra is back for yet another round of mischief. I know I keep saying this, but I really do love her character. I hope she manages to continue popping up for a while yet, her stories have been some of the most fun ones yet. (view spoiler)[ Where the other two volumes of Aphra had been fun and flighty, this volume has a slightly heavier tone to it. It’s still a fantastic read, but there’s some dark implications happening. On the bright ...

    I still maintain that Doctor Aphra is one of the greatest additions to the Star Wars mythology in recent years, but this volume confirms my fear about the character--she cannot solely carry her own title.  This installment tries to spice things up a bit by making Doctor Aphra beholden to Triple-Zero, the murderous entity in the guise of a protocol droid.  Triple-Zero sends Aphra on a series of missions in which she must lead a group of mercena...

    I’ve loved Doctor Aphra every step of the way and I’m so glad that they’ve given us this series. It does a lot of great things, especially in terms of adding diversity to the Star Wars canon. Unfortunately this volume wasn’t as raving of a success as the previous two. The concept was kind of standard (form a crew and steal something from the Empire) which is fine but it wasn’t well executed. I think the main problem was that there were ...

    If you have not reading this series I feel bad for you. Doctor Aphra is trying to survive in a universe that has it out for her. From her former partners, love interests and Rebel General Hera !!!!

    What in the ever living hell has happened to Star Wars? Remastered is a total travesty. A complete failure, and puts a black mark on Star Wars from which it will never recover. In all seriousness though, Remastered is flat out bad. I’m not talking like “so bad it’s good” bad or, “well, it’s definitely not the best” kind of bad. No, I’m talking bad as in awful. Bad as in bottom of the garbage can. Bad as in easily one the worst com...

    Every Aphra comic has gotten steadily worse to the point she’s firmly the Deadpool of Star Wars. I now wish she’d died in that Vader comic.

    Oh, how the tables have turned. As Doctor Aphra finds herself under the thumb of her previous lackeys, homocidal robots Triple Zero and Bee-Tee, Magna Tolvan draws ever closer to tracking down the troublemaking archaelogist who has ruined her career. But when Aphra’s latest scheme brings her into conflict with both the Empire and the Rebel Alliance, the stage is set for an explosive confrontation…and maybe some romance along the way?You would...

    I really enjoyed this volume. While I have always liked Aphra, I have not always been as fond of the supporting cast (I may be the only reader who can't stand the murder-droid duo). With a new (for the most part) group of supporters this time around, Aphra is given the chance (and the time) to really shine.Sure, her good/bad girl schtick is starting to get old a bit but it still works for the time-being and is played well by Gillen/Spurrier. Her ...

    I thought Aphra was an OK character. Not necessarily groundbreaking. Then she got her own series and I thought, "Good. Let's make her some awesome female, galactic Indiana Jones and show that archaeology can be interesting." Boy was I let down. She has an uninteresting story and now they've turned her into the "mandatory LGBTQ+ character". It would have been fine if she had seemed that way at all. It honestly came out of nowhere and was extremely...

    I really like Aphra as a character, but feel like the writing waxes and wanes. I especially enjoyed the archeology parts of her adventures, but I was getting worn on the droids in previous entries. This one scaled back the roles a bit and the more I read in the canon about droids and their capabilities and their complexity, the more I am able accept Beetee and Triple Zero. I still feel like Aphra's flirting and some of her other dialogue is a bit...

    I love this series so much. I'm a little nervous that Kieron Gillen is handing over the reins to a new writer, and I did feel like there were some stylistic hiccups in the writing of this arc. But it's just so damn fun and action-packed that I'm not interested in being overly critical. I will say that the way the story is shaping up, I'm actually starting to hope that the series ends before too long. It feels like it has nearly run its course and...

    I'm still digging the Aphra series. She still constantly getting into trouble and finding ingenious and devious ways of out of it. The Scarif references were a little too on the nose, but it did a better job of exploring the Rebellion, the Empire and crime syndicates, than the Han Solo movie did. And it's always nice to see General Hera Syndulla.

    Triple-0 and Beetee are as heinous as ever. And Aphra hits new lows as she jaunts around doing Trip's bidding with a bunch of mercs. It's good fun, and Aphra is such a bad person. I love the female scoundrel.

    Public library copy. I don't think the writer's have anything new or interesting to add to this character. Perhaps the reason this volume was less enjoyable and each panel crammed with text resides with a new writer.

    Aphra have its ups and downs, but it is still very fun series (and most fun from recent and ongoing ones). And it's somehow fresh - Aphra is opportunist, the story balances in moral greyness and has fun note (and lot of interesting characters).

    This was honestly pretty great. If this is what Si Spurrier writing this book is gonna be like, I'm definitely going to be looking forward to reading the continuing adventures of that incorrigible scoundrel Joystick Chevron.

    Doctor Aphra is THE BEST NEW CHARACTER in the new SW Canon. The series is always full of action and brings humour and craziness to SW. This volume in particular was awesome and really brought out a wonderful aspect of the character that I hope they continue to touch on.

    Gillen is leaving his creation Aphra to write the main Star Wars comic with a bang. A great fun story and lovely team ups

    My favorite character in the Star Wars extended universe; Aphra and the plot both keep getting more interesting.

    Another enjoyable entry, however, as this series continues I feel less and less that Doc. Aphra fits into the SW universe. So much of this story could take place in any sci-fi universe.

    Back on track. After a so-so second volume, this one delivers. Action. Love. Betrayal. And Hera? Great addition.

    Aphra sigue siendo lo mejor que ha hecho Gillen en SW, no sé si en este compendio hemos sido testigos de una aduana que no ha podido franquear.
