This review of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #13 contains minor spoilers.
There’s something oddly satisfying about a good ending.
Doctor Aphra #13 is all of those: Odd, satisfying and good.
So it should be, given the final episode in the five-part arc “The Enormous Profit.”
The book ends on a high note for Dr. Chelli Aphra, a decidedly low point for Yonak, a vengeful mark for Black Krrsantan, a vastly superior arrangement for Triple 0 and BT-1 and an ominous one for Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
All in all, it’s been a pleasant run for this story by Kieron Gillen and its conclusion is done in a tight and coherent manner.
Bolstered by art from Kev Walker and Marc Deering, along with snappy colors from Antonio Fabela, readers are treated to several endings that leave no doubt as to the future for the characters involved.
Whether it’s Rur facing his match (finally) or Aphra sitting a beach, enjoying a drink, the issue starts heavy with action before gliding toward its end with a lot of action and deft endings.
Doctor Aphra #13 is in comic shows now, selling for $3.99, and on Comixology.
