e first met Doctor Aphra in the panels of a classic Star Wars villain’s comic book. She quickly became known as the Indiana Jones of Star Wars - a chaotic archeologist with a questionable moral compass, a dark past, and an inability to stay out of life-threatening situations.

News of an audio drama focused on her appearances in the Darth Vader (2015) comic came unexpectedly last year, and its summer release introduced many Star Wars fans to the character for the very first time.

Just as Dooku: Jedi Lost released in audio form first and script form about a year later, Doctor Aphra: An Audiobook Original will also release a second time a week from today in book form.

Whether you’ve given the audio drama a listen (or three) or you’ve had a few other new Star Wars books higher up on your TBR pile (we’ve heard this whole High Republic thing is pretty great), the script will offer a new way to experience the story. Especially for those who aren’t able to or prefer not to listen.


The script is bound, printed, and sold just like a novel, though its sizing is slightly different -- though not too drastic that it won’t fit cozily on your shelf next to all your other Star Wars books.

Here’s a brief look at what you’ll find between the covers.

SANA STARROS:

What is that insane woman doing?

APHRA (narration):

My head whipped around—and I saw her. She was standing on the ground below, hands on her hips, head cocked to the side. Looking thoroughly perturbed.

SANA STARROS:

Aphra? Is that you? Do you have a death wish or are you just a complete fool?

APHRA (narration):

I . . . Void, this next part is so humiliating.

I let go. I fell. And I crashed right into Sana Starros, who broke my fall and probably saved me from breaking my neck.

SANA STARROS:

Oof.
