The crossover between the two series Star Wars and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra is impending in Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel. Issue #1 is the first chapter in a five-part story that begins on May 10th. The crossover is written by two creators already steeped in Star Wars titles, Jason Aaron (Star Wars, The Mighty Thor) and Kieron Gillen (Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra).
Here’s the official description for the first issue:
Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side-by-side into the darkest corners of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams with Doctor Aphra! The good Doctor has an offer for this flyboy farm boy – help her, and she’ll provide him with information crucial on his quest to become a Jedi. With an offer he can’t refuse on the table, this unlikely duo finds themselves deep into the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel! Can Luke find what he’s looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will the Citadel’s Queen and the dark forces lurking within make their journey a one-way trip?!
The first issue is written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Marco Checchetto, and later in May, the story will continue in the pages of Star Wars and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra.
Our covers are by Mark Checchetto, Rod Reis, Chris Samnee, and Michael Walsh:
