Doctor Aphra and Darth Vader are two new Star Wars comics featured this week. Get to reading because Darth Vader is nearly over.
This week’s Star Wars comics see two new issues coming out with Darth Vader No. 23 and Doctor Aphra No. 26.
The comics showcase the not-so-good side of the Star Wars universe with Doctor Aphra having a little more fun in the process. The Darth Vader series is winding down soon so it will be interesting to see the completion of this incredible series.

In the newest issue of Doctor Aphra, the eponymous character finds herself in trouble yet again. Shocking, I know. But that’s what Doctor Aphra is really good at.
This time she is stuck with Triple-Zero, a sadistic droid who loves murder. But she is truly stuck with him because if they move too far apart from each other, then they are both dead. Sounds like the exact place Doctor Aphra wants to be since she has been trying to avoid him as much as possible.
However, Doctor Aphra can’t be that lucky. She is a little bit lucky to get out alive as often as she has, but it’s always one crazy adventure after another.
Here’s Marvel’s synopsis of Doctor Aphra No. 26:
"DOCTOR APHRA — WORST AMONG EQUALS! On the run from the law in an alien city, DOCTOR APHRA can’t stray more than a few paces from her companion without both of them blowing up. Time to cooperate, right? Except, unfortunately, her companion is Triple-Zero, a sadistic murderdroid who’s more interested in her death than playing nice. A brand-new misadventure for the galaxy’s foremost amoral archaeologist starts here!"

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith No. 23
The Darth Vader series has just two Star Wars comics left after this issue, ending at No. 25. The series will complete the arc of Fortress Vader, which we have learned new information from.
We learned about Lord Momin, a Sith who was wiped from the history books because of his unique and outlandish ways. We have also seen Vader have a connection to Padme even after his transformation.
This series has been great and has only been getting better.
Here’s the synopsis from Marvel comics:
"“FORTRESS VADER” – PART 5 Darkness rises above MUSTAFAR as the brutal designs of LORD MOMIN begin to take shape. But the planet’s inhabitants cannot take this desecration lightly, and shape plans of their own."
