“Star Wars: Doctor Aphra ” will be written by “Darth Vader” scribe Kieron Gillen and feature art from Kev Walker (“Uncanny Inhumans,” “Avengers”). Kamome Shirahama will provide covers for the series. The series joins fellow ongoings “Star Wars” and “Poe Dameron” in Marvel’s line. “Doctor Aphra” also marks a first: it’s the first comic series to star a character originally created for Marvel and not featured in the movies. Additionally, Doctor Aphra was one of the first characters created for the new canon.
“Star Wars: Doctor Aphra” #1 and #2 will arrive in December.
