Doctor Aphra and Star Wars Comics Star in Marvel’s The Screaming Citadel Crossover

The Screaming Citadel AnnouncementWhen I first saw the announcement, I thought it was a joke, as The Screaming Citadel sounds like something out of a campy horror B-movie. Thankfully it wasn’t though, as it sounds like Marvel’s next crossover (the first being Vader Down) looks to embrace the title’s tone and give us a gothic-horror story set in the Star Wars universe. Even better, it’s a crossover of the mainline Star Wars series with my absolute favorite comic character to date, Doctor Aphra! Check out some choice details below to find out what awaits you dear comic reader when the crossover begins this May. UPDATE: Marco Checchetto, who will have artist duties on the one-shot start to the crossover, shares some new character designs, so check that out below too!

Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #28

Star Wars #28

– Spoiler Review –

“Yoda’s Secret War,” continues in Star Wars issue #28, where his tale begins to ‘forcefully’ intertwine across time, we get to see more clearly into a different side of the great Jedi Master, and the mysteries in his adventure at least get a little more interesting.

Begun, in Star Wars #26, “Yoda’s Secret War” has. Jason Aaron is joined by one of my favorite artist pairs, Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado (Darth Vader), for an adventure from Yoda’s past, as read by Luke from the Journal’s of Old Ben Kenobi.

Canon Comic Review: Doctor Aphra #1

Doctor Aphra #1

– Spoiler Review –

I did my best to check my expectations and excitement at the door, but even though I mostly didn’t, Doctor Aphra #1, written by Kieron Gillen, art by Kev Walker, and colors by Antonio Fabela, does not disappoint, kicking off the series in as delightful and humorous fashion as one comes to expect from anything having to do with the good Doctor. It establishes the series’ more intimate focus, builds on Aphra’s many great characteristics, and gives her co-stars a chance to shine as they are want to do. And to sweeten the pot, there’s a flashback one-shot delving into the tale of how Aphra got her doctorate, brought to life by Gillen and Darth Vader series veterans Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado.

Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #25

Darth Vader #25

Spoiler Review –

Dreading what may all transpire, especially for fans of Dr. Aphra, in the final issue of the Darth Vader series is to be expected. What was also to be expected, and thoroughly confirmed after reading Darth Vader #25’s final page, is how Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, and Edgar Delgado have wrapped up their modern classic with a riveting, enjoyable, tear-inducing, and full-circle ending that’ll be long remembered.

Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #24

Darth Vader #24

Spoiler Review –

There’s no mincing words here: Darth Vader #24 is a stunning penultimate issue, delivering an unprecedented psychological deep-dive into one of fiction’s greatest villains and setting the stage for what can only be a suitably epic finale. After everything Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, and Edgar Delgado have done together, it shouldn’t have been a surprise issue #24 would’ve been this good, but they seem to have a habit of outdoing themselves. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #24”

Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #23

Darth Vader #23

Spoiler Review –

Despite only two issues left after this, the Darth Vader series shows no signs of slowing down in issue #23. Vader is a wrecking-ball of destruction as he continues his assault on Cylo and his remaining creation, Morit, while Aphra devises a plan to possibly save her skin beyond the events of this series. But as exciting, action-packed, and full of necessary exclamation moments as Darth Vader #23 gets, it ends with a big, surprising, cliffhanger I don’t believe anyone quite saw coming. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #23”

Darth Vader #22

Spoiler Review –

Tulon Voidgazer’s purpose is revealed, Vader battles a cyberanimate Rancor, Aphra devises a desperate ploy to escape her looming fate, and Cylo makes his move to take the Executor in the rather action packed issue Darth Vader #22. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Darth Vader #22”
