Doctor Aphra
"And now for our devilishly clever plan to steal a robot womb factory off a homicidally broody alien queen."

Her name is Chelli Lona Aphra, AKA Doctor Aphra.

She studied to be an archaeologist, but what’s the point in finding treasure if you don’t sell it for a profit? This anti-Indy rogue fends for herself as she seeks out the rarest artifacts and meets one-of-a-kind characters along the way. Most of them want to capture or assassinate her, but that’s all part of the fun!

There’s no telling what sort of trouble Doctor Aphra will find herself in. Just call it a normal day on the job.

Marvel’s first Star Wars crossover event bridges Jason Aaron’s flagship title with Kieron Gillen’s Darth Vader series. Vader Down sees Vader up against the entire Alliance army. How dangerous can he be if backed against a wall? It’s also brings together each comic’s main characters into a single story: from R2-D2 and Beetee One to Princess Leia and Doctor Aphra.

One of the best things in Star Wars Canon is seeing characters both original and new coming together to create a seamless universe where everything can coexist in the best intergalactic story ever told. Rebel Jail is a great example of that as Princess Leia encounters the notorious Doctor Aphra while Luke and Han go on an adventure of their own.

Imagine the polar opposites of Chewie, Threepio, and Artoo times ten. You’ll never read anything else so different yet so Star Wars at the same time.

Jason Aaron, Kieron Gillen

Salvador Larroca, Mike Deodato, Jr., Leinil Francis Yu, Kaare Andrews
The Darth Vader (2015) long-running comic by Marvel is one of the most talked about Canon series to date.

Doctor Aphra (2016) Vol. 2: The Enormous Profit (Trade Paperback)

Written by
Kieron Gillen
Artwork by
Kev Walker, Marc Laming
We’ve seen Chelli Aphra take on some wild adventures by the horns and come out of it alive (barely). The question now is how will she escape a deadly and sentient crystal gone rogue during her attempt to sell it to the highest bidder at her very own auction party? And in the midst of the chaos, a surprise visitor decides to join the fray. I guess that’s what Doctor Aphra gets for being greedy.

Doctor Aphra (2016) Vol. 3: Remastered (Trade Paperback)

Written by
Kieron Gillen,Simon Spurrier
Artwork by
Emilio Laiso
Aphra’s monotonous life as a rogue archeologist takes a turn in this exciting “remaster” of the instant-classic comic series. Things shake up a bit as friends now become foes which leads to new friends and...new foes? Whatever Doctor Aphra was expecting for her next job, getting involved with the Rebel Alliance was probably not on the list. But what can we say? It’s a small galaxy. The only consistent thing about Aphra’s life is that it’s unpredictable.

Doctor Aphra (2016) Vol. 4: The Catastraphe Con (Trade Paperback)

Written by
Simon Spurrier
Artwork by
Kev Walker

Rogue archaeologist Chelle Aphra is in hot water—an Imperial prison ship where she is close supervised at all times by guard droids. Despite her sketchy past, she might prove to be the Rebels' only hope. She teams up with a delightful crew consisting of a colorful and exesiential destroyer droid, a wimpy shapeshifter named Lopset, and ex-lovers Sana Starros and Imperial Inspector Tolvan. They’re on the run from Imperial authorities, a self-righteous lawman, the bloodthirsty droid Triple Zero, and even the psychotic ghost of a long-dead Jedi trapped in a fungus trapped in the hull of a crashed ship!

The characters of Doctor Aphra, Triple Zero, and BT-1 are first introduced in Kieron Gillen’s run on Darth Vader. When that series concluded, Aphra received her own solo series. This series is Si Spurrier’s run on these dark, twisted, and never boring characters.

If Star Wars and Saw ever had a crossover, it would probably be something like Doctor Aphra: Worst Among Equals. Chelli Aphra has to race against the clock to diffuse a bomb in her neck by skipping town while sticking with Triple Zero who is trying to kill her also while avoiding other bounty hunters who are trying to capture her. Oh, and the only way she can move is by hopping on one leg and breathing only through her nose with her eyes closed. Just kidding, but that’s probably what it feels like for poor ol’ Aphra.

Since her introduction in Kieron Gillen's Darth Vader series from Marvel in 2015, Doctor Aphra caught fire in the fandom. With a morally grey rogue archeologist accompanied by murderous droids, what's not to love? Her story is filled with twists and turns, betrayal and romance, with more skin-of-your-teeth escapes than you ever thought possible, and now you can experience her introduction in a whole new way. Sarah Kuhn's adaptation of Aphra's arc in the Darth Vader comics smartly tells the story from her perspective, somehow recapping the 2015 comics without ever feeling like you were retreading old ground. This is one of the more unique, fun, and diverse stories in the galaxy.
