Everyone’s favorite Twi’lek pilot will be making an appearance in Doctor Aphra #18, an ongoing comic book series that’s set sometime between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
Here is a brief description of the issue from Jedi-Bibliothek:
Doctor Aphra is being blackmailed by Triple Zero and has to carry out missions for his underground crime syndicate – but that does not mean she can not cause trouble and have fun! Sometimes it’s fun to infiltrate the rebels’ training ground … and sometimes it’s time to meet the famous rebel hero Hera Syndulla in person!
I haven’t read this comic book series, but I have heard good things about the character of Doctor Aphra. That said, I don’t know who she is or what her role is in the Star Wars universe, but one way to surely get my attention is pairing her up with a Star Wars Rebels character. It’ll be interesting to see what Hera is up to around this time and if there’ll be other Rebels references in the story.
Doctor Aphra #18 will be released on March 28, 2018.
