Doctor Aphra is a series that I dug a lot when it first started; unfortunately, the longer it’s gone on, the more I’ve found its shine to be steadily wearing off, to the point that I now find myself myself continuing to read it more out of habit than any real interest or excitement in seeing where it’s going. I think part of my problem with the series is with Aphra herself: I’ve never really found her to be a particularly enjoyable or interesting character, and her quirky cynicism, while amusing ...more

A fun heist story with some romance thrown in. It's about time some LGBTQ+ characters made it into the Star Wars universe. Aphra and an Imperial Captain have a nice game of flirtatious cat and mouse while Aphra is forced to go after Triple Zero's memories. It's fun to see the tables turned on Aphra by Triple Zero and BeeTee as well. The art and coloring by Emilio Laiso and Rachelle Rosenberg were fantastic.

Doctor Aphra was an interesting idea for a character, and for a few issues of the Vader graphic novel series, she was a lot of fun. But she's now become one of the worst Star Wars characters. The concept of an archaeologist in Star Wars has fantastic potential, but Aphra is not an archaeologist; she's just a juvenile, snide, bland character, and in her own series she is surrounded by other juvenile, snide, bland characters.

What in the ever living hell has happened to Star Wars?

Remastered is a total travesty. A complete failure, and puts a black mark on Star Wars from which it will never recover.

In all seriousness though, Remastered is flat out bad. I’m not talking like “so bad it’s good” bad or, “well, it’s definitely not the best” kind of bad. No, I’m talking bad as in awful. Bad as in bottom of the garbage can. Bad as in easily one the worst comics I have ever read and hands down the absolute worst of any Star

The artwork here was great!

The story? Not so much!

This was weird. It just didnt hit any of the same fun highs as Vol 1 and 2. Yes the writer was a duo for some of the issues and the final issue it was taken over but I felt the actual story was just really quite dull and convoluted. However the art was probably the best I've seen so far.

Every Aphra comic has gotten steadily worse to the point she’s firmly the Deadpool of Star Wars.
I now wish she’d died in that Vader comic.

I still maintain that Doctor Aphra is one of the greatest additions to the Star Wars mythology in recent years, but this volume confirms my fear about the character--she cannot solely carry her own title.  

This installment tries to spice things up a bit by making Doctor Aphra beholden to Triple-Zero, the murderous entity in the guise of a protocol droid.  Triple-Zero sends Aphra on a series of missions in which she must lead a group of mercenaries.  There are some interesting asides as Aphra dev

I really don't understand all the negative reviews here. This was the best Aphra story yet and could easily be made into a blockbuster movie. I love the character--bad, but not evil (at least trying not to be), out for herself (often at the expense of those around her), but with just enough good touches to fully humanize her. I like the ongoing flirtation with the Imperial captain Tolvan, which leads to something more this time around. And the primary heist of Imperial information is handled jus ...more

2.5 Stars.
Aphra continues her drifting through the galaxy, now as a servant of Triple-Zero, the sadistic Threepio-esque protocol droid of Vader's. She continues to cross paths, with Magna Tolvan (who is actually a much more interesting character to me) who she also begins a relationship of sorts with. Add in the ability to use a certain small creature as a bomb, activated with the code words "Snugglebum Oogiewoogie", an adventure helping Hera Syndulla, and creating all her usual double-crossing
Finally catching up on Doctor Aphra. This is one is *very* dark. Comedy evil droids turn into actually evil droids and things do not go that well for our heroine. Except she gets to flirt with a hot cyber woman Imperial. Which is BRILLIANT! It's so nice to see queer relationships in Star Wars. Even if they are technically bad people. They are also terribly interesting and complex and much more so than any of the characters in the films. So I love it! Going to start vol. 4 this evening.

Not a fan of this "remastered" Dr. Aphra.....this was terrible compared to previous volumes. Weak story with stupid characters.

I’ve loved Doctor Aphra every step of the way and I’m so glad that they’ve given us this series. It does a lot of great things, especially in terms of adding diversity to the Star Wars canon. Unfortunately this volume wasn’t as raving of a success as the previous two. The concept was kind of standard (form a crew and steal something from the Empire) which is fine but it wasn’t well executed. I think the main problem was that there were too many new characters introduced at one time and that made ...more

If you have not reading this series I feel bad for you. Doctor Aphra is trying to survive in a universe that has it out for her. From her former partners, love interests and Rebel General Hera !!!!

This was SO. MUCH. FUN. Apparently this story arc was quite divisive, but I absolutely LOVED it from start to finish. Kieron Gillen and Simon Spurrier cowrite this volume, and I don't know who wrote exactly what bits, but all of my concerns about the new writer changing the tone of the book or the departure of Triple Zero and Beetee were completely alleviated in this volume.

Triple Zero and Beetee still factor into the story of Doctor Aphra in a big way, but I don't want to spoil how they are in

Doctor Aphra is back for yet another round of mischief. I know I keep saying this, but I really do love her character. I hope she manages to continue popping up for a while yet, her stories have been some of the most fun ones yet.

Another fantastic volume of Doctor Aphra. While not as much Triple Zero and BT-1 that I would prefer, Aphra has a new group or equally interesting mercs at her disposal.

In this collection Aphra goes full Harley Quinn, a murderous psychopath who is nonetheless charming and smart. Star Wars has always been goofy at the best of times, so leaning into that works just fine. Aphra getting her comrades and enemies and pets blown up en masse feels like a natural progression of the character, honestly. The fact she’s gay and apparently is sort of Asian in looks is sure to piss off the white fanbois who like this franchise to be all Space Nazis all the time.

Aphra have its ups and downs, but it is still very fun series (and most fun from recent and ongoing ones). And it's somehow fresh - Aphra is opportunist, the story balances in moral greyness and has fun note (and lot of interesting characters).

Doctor Aphra continues to be a fun read. The third volume doesn't progress quite as smoothly as the previous books. I liked the inclusion of a love interest and the way this story picks up threads from the last one. Aphra needs to get back in the driver's seat though.

Dr. Aphra is at it again! A new adventure, some new faces, some old faces, some ancient history, and.... Exploding kittens? Cool!

THE STORY: Dr. Aphra is back with Triple Zero, forced to serve him. He sends her and a group of other miscreants to recover a hidden memory core that contains memories of his past life. She crosses paths with both the galactic empire and the rebel Alliance, and encounters familiar faces in both factions- one that she personally has encountered before, and one that us t

This third volume of Doctor Aphra continues the blend of action, humor and moral ambiguity that makes her such a compelling character.

Gillen and new writer to the series, Simon Spurrier, turn several story elements on their heads to keep the reader guessing and Aphra on her toes! Aphra now takes orders from assassin droid Triple Zero, leaving Aphra in an especially precarious position, as TZ has no attachments or particular regard for the sanctity of life. She's instructed to complete a near imp

Roles have switched with Dr. Aphra finding herself at the mercy of the merciless Triple-Zero and Beetee-One, serving the crime syndicate they secretly took over. Aphra may be bad, but she’s not as bad as her former murder droids are, or as bad they intend on forcing her to become. How does she get out of this situation? With wits, nerve, and an ability to think outrageously outside the box, along with a few witting and unwitting allies, including the demoted Imperial officer, Magda Tolvan, whose ...more

While technically the third volume of “Doctor Aphra”, “Remastered” is, actually, the fourth compilation in the series, as “The Screaming Citadel”, a cross-over issue between this series and “Star Wars”, counts as the second compilation. Not to confuse you or anything.

The feisty troublemaking ex-Imperial archaeologist, Chelli Aphra, is at it again. She’s running with a ragtag crew of ne’er-do-wells and rapscallions, led by the psychotic droids Triple-Zero and BeeTee-One. Her latest job reunites h
A while back started reading graphic novels, found it a nice change of pace from reading traditional books and this actually is my second read related to Star Wars. Saw the first four volumes of this series, where free on Prime, so decided to give it a try, really liked it, liked the Doctor Aphra character, the graphics are great and like this one a lot. Real like the graphics in this one, it continues the storyline in Vol. 1, will read more of the series, may even try more from the Star Wars fr ...more
Hm, potentially thinking about a Doctor Aphra cosplay...

Aphra has plans within plans and always a way out of any situation. Plundering a data core so dense that it has its own gravity was quite an accomplishment. Nice twist at the end.

Gillen hands over to Spurrier for increased instances of wordplay jokes and kissing, top notch.
