Marvel Comics has revealed a new variant cover for the second printing of Doctor Aphra #7 and it’s a beauty. Drawn by Minkyu Jung with colors by Rochelle Rosenberg, the cover may look familiar to Solo: A Star Wars Story fans.
“The Star Wars universe is a dream place that all artists want to explore. In Star Wars comics, I can dive as deep into a galaxy far, far away as our team wants to go and meet new aliens and crazy creatures,” Jung said in a press release sent to AIPT. “And getting to interact with infamous characters in the history of the Star Wars films like Lady Proxima is a true highlight in the journey!”
Check it out below.
This cover is particularly amazing since, if you watch Rachelle Rosenberg’s Twitch, this cover was colored live only 9 hours ago!

New York, NY— January 29, 2021 — Last week’s issue of STAR WARS: DOCTOR APRHA has sold out at comic shops across the country! Continuing writer Alyssa Wong and artist Minkyu Jung’s high-octane run on the title, STAR WARS: DOCTOR APRHA #7 saw Aphra daring to do business with Lady Proxima, the famous Corellian gangster from Solo: A Star Wars Story. This was just the latest dangerous encounter for the rogue archeologist as she traverses the galaxy for her next big score.
“The Star Wars universe is a dream place that all artists want to explore. In Star Wars comics, I can dive as deep into a galaxy far, far away as our team wants to go and meet new aliens and crazy creatures,” Jung said. “And getting to interact with infamous characters in the history of the Star Wars films like Lady Proxima is a true highlight in the journey!”
