I've only heard about Aphra from other sources (podcasts & youtube videos and such), I haven't read her stories yet, but I already love the character. I'd be really into bringing her to life on the big screen.


That's just a it. A story no one has heard about a thief, a bounty hunting wookie, and 2 homicidal droids. If that's not a "new Star Wars story" nothing is.

:luv:

I'm in. I think it could be a fun way to make a "new Indian Jones" movie, too, without actually bothering to make an new Indy movie. Since she's kind of a archaeologist, it just makes good sense.

Wasn't the Crystal Skull a Star Wars prequel? Didn't the aliens transport Indy into the SW universe where he was all like "I better change my name"

AL

My god! Can we please make that canon?!

You really need to read the first Vader series to appreciate Aphra. Her solo series glosses over what happened in it, but she’s pretty much the main supporting character in it.

Speaking of... how about the current Vader run? Him and Jocasta Nu? That was awesome storytelling.

And super important regarding the overall storyline and connective tissue but also for Vader as a character. This is one of the best Star Wars comics I've seen in the new canon era. This whole Jocasta Nu arc has been wonderful.

That the Jocasta storyline would directly tie into current timeline events.

Well a couple of issues back we see him meditating and the artist confirmed the little butterflies of light you see around him are representive of the good still in him. He’s still fighting that within him but it’s there. I found that fascinating as a layer to add to him. So from there to ROTJ perhaps there’s one small corner of him that’s always been good and Luke finds that crack of light and good in him and pries it open.

So brilliant getting extra dimensions added to a character we always assume he’s one note out of the box evil bad guy.
