New York, NY— May 3, 2020 — Doctor Aphra has captivated the minds of Star Wars fans since her first appearance in the pages of STAR WARS: DARTH VADER, and now her new ongoing comic series will be getting a special digital-first comic release in celebration of May the Fourth! Check out STAR WARS: DOCTOR APHRA #1, on-sale Monday, May 4 in the Marvel Comics App and Marvel Digital Comics Shop!
Written by Alyssa Wong with art by Marika Cresta, the series equips Doctor Aphra with both a new crew and a new mission set in the aftermath of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. With the Rebel Alliance back on the run after their defeat at the Battle of Hoth, it’s never been a more dangerous time for outlaws, scoundrels and the errant rogue archaeologist to make their way in the galaxy. But after a string of bad luck and near escapes, Doctor Aphra has been keeping a low profile—jobs are scarce and credits scarcer. But the promise of the score of a lifetime is just too good for her to pass up.
