Aphra's back with a brand-new plan that's guaranteed to pay! There's just one teensy problem... it involves surrounding herself with some of the galaxy's biggest baddies. And they don't like the not-so-good doctor's tricks! Her mission to make quick credits by auctioning off an ancient Jedi artifact will start well... and end badly. And that's just when a dark figure from Aphra's past decides to make an appearance! Plus, a solo focus on Aphra's Wookiee shadow, Black Krrsantan! Find out why this beastly bounty hunter is as frightening as they say... and then some! COLLECTING: STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA 9-13, ANNUAL
If you want to get into the Star Wars books and you love comics, I HIGHLY suggest digging into the Doctor Aphra comics. Doctor Aphra is definitely one of my new favorite characters of the new Star Wars canon. I think it's just refreshing to read about a character that just knows she's a criminal and just does not give an F! It makes me laugh a lot. I really tend to like the outlaw characters in the Star Wars universe, they just seem to have way more fun.

The story picks up right where the first one ended, with Aphra up to no good and trying to sell the artifact she stole in the last volume. Aphra feels like a true outlaw, and she knows she is a no good thief. I kind of love that about her. Also, you have to admit that the girl has mad style.

I really love the art in this comic, and I imagine it looks even better in print, because it looks really good in the digital format. I really like the rich colors that are used through out. 

I also love that this book is just kind of funny! There were multiple times while I was reading that I did actually laugh out loud. Aphra is always getting herself in bad situations and somehow she makes it out, by the skin of her teeth. Especially in this one where she asks Black Krrsantan to not let her be a good person. 😂

In this book, Aphra gets into a lot of trouble, and things end up bad for her with some of her partners, so I'm really interested to see where this one is headed. I also think some even bigger villains are going to be coming after her. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!
