A TENSE RESCUE! – A DARK DROIDS TIE-IN!
MAGNA TOLVAN has fallen into the hands of the SCOURGE!
In order to save her, DOCTOR APHRA turns to SANA STARROS…
…to save the woman they BOTH love!
SWNN - Star Wars News NetIf Domina becomes a new threat, perhaps that will distract Aphra for another issue before Dark Droids #5 arrives late in December and the threat is dealt with once and for all. This was a highly entertaining issue and possibly the best one of the entire crossover.
ComicBook.comWith Magna Tolvan infested by the scourge, Aphra seeks allies to sever her cybernetic connection to the invading presence. As Aphra aims to enlist more help in her cause, however, the scourge itself is also spreading its power even further, though Aphra's history with cybernetics could prove to be the key to unlocking the entire saga unfolding in the crossover event. This issue marks what feels like the first official tease in the whole Dark Droids event that could shed insight into what the point of the experience is, other than an ancient entity wanting to make the jump from a mechanical body into living flesh. Aphra, her specific traits, and the nature of her series feel like the crux of the entire storyline, and while we have yet to see how the entire experience pans out, this latest issue helps solidify just how significant this series is within the major crossover event and helping establish Aphra and her supporting characters as integral components of the galaxy far, far away.
The Fandom PostI feel like a broken record with it but the Aphra book has generally been the best of the Dark Droids event in how it’s been both a narrow focus while also providing a personal context because of the Scourge and Aphra’s time with the Spark. That all factors into parts of it here but it doesn’t overplay it. We get some of the body horror elements mixed in as well and it’s good to touch upon some of the other cyborgs that are caught up in all of it as well. Add in the good stuff we get with Sana and Aphra talking things out at the start and it’s a solidly well-rounded book.
