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.
