Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 written by Alyssa Wong with pencils by Minkyu Jung is a tie-in to the “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters” crossover event. In this issue, Doctor Aphra & Sana Starros are sent on a mission by Lady Domina Tagge to locate and bring back her wayward, arms smuggling cousin Ebann. Along the way, they have to deal with a bounty hunter named Durge, as well as some creatures known as “Cymotes.” Meanwhile, Lucky & Ariole are sent to a “crime syndicate party” by Wen Delphis to eliminate Crae.
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 is a fun read, but has little connection to the “War of the Bounty Hunters” crossover event. In my opinion, this issue is more of a “prelude” issue than “Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #10” was. Alyssa Wong does a nice job of giving us a story that basically could be read as a stand-alone story. That being said, it is clear to this reviewer that the current missions of Aphra, Sana, Lucky & Ariole will soon bring them all together with the characters in the other “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters” crossover titles. The artwork by Minkyu Jung is well done and adds to the overall enjoyment of the story. I especially like the consistency in the artwork penciling of Aphra. Also, a shout-out to Rachelle Rosenberg for an excellent job with the coloring. The use of so many different colors throughout added to the overall visual enjoyment of the issue.
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 is an enjoyable story that fans of the series will appreciate. It has a nice plot that will clearly lead into and become an important part of the main “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters” crossover event – eventually. It is also worth mentioning that I believe writer Alyssa Wong consciously had new readers in mind, as she frequently mentions things that have come before in previous issues. Therefore, readers of the other “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters” crossover titles can feel confident that they can pick up this book and understand what is going on.
