Coming up in August, Marvel Comics will be releasing the Doctor Aphra Annual #1, written by Kieron Gillen, drawn by Marc Laming, with cover art by David Nakayama.
That’s a sweet cover. Following the characters established in the standalone Doctor Aphra series, including the title character and rogue archaeologist and shadowy Wookie companion Black Krrsantan, the story is set to delve into the Wookie’s past to uncover why he is as “frightening as they say”, according to Marvel.
While Doctor Aphra herself has a “troubled past full of parental drama and war”, this Wookie may have even more of a backstory to tell.
The Doctor Aphra Annual #1 is set to arrive in comic shops on August 23rd, 2017. You can order it now with Diamond code: JUN171008
