Plenty to be thankful for when it came to Marvel’s November slate of Star Wars comics, including a pair of double-dips for the Star Wars and Darth Vader series. Reading Poe Dameron gave us all kinds of feels, especially if you harbor affection for not just Leia Organa, but Padme Amidala.
After the enormity of the previous story arc, issue 14 begins the cycle anew with Si Spurrier joining Kieron Gillen on the monthly title as co-writer.
If the first chapter of “Remastered” is any indication, it’s going to be a hell of a ride.
This issue is the first since Aphra’s debut where we see her truly grapple with her past decisions and how they color her future outlook.
It’s a story that sees the return of familiar faces and potential partners in the persona of Imperial now-Lt. Magna Tolva, as well as something that’s been seen only fleetingly in prior adventures: a conscience. Add to that the realization that Aphra’s seemingly thoughtless actions have had consequences on those she’s interacted with — see Tolva — and it’s a remarkable piece of character study.
November’s seven Star Wars comics see the debut of Kieron Gillen on the main monthly, two issues of Darth Vader, the penultimate issue of the Mace Windu five-issue mini series and ongoing adventures with Poe Dameron and Doctor Aphra.
