Pichelli’s Doctor Aphra #16 Homages Domina Tagge’s First Appearance

Yesterday, Marvel announced its solicits for November 2021 Star Wars comic releases! Doctor Aphra #16 was included with an awesome Sara Pichelli cover depicting Domina Tagge moving Aphra, Sana, and Just Lucky around a chess board like the pawns in her plan that they are!

It turns out, this cover is a crafty homage to Domina Tagge’s first appearance in Star Wars #35 (Marvel 1980)! Very sneaky, Pichelli!

Doctor Aphra #16 releases November 2021. Official solicit:

ALYSSA WONG (W) • MINKYU JUNG (A)

A DEADLY GAME!

  • DOCTOR APHRA and SANA STARROS have escaped the VERMILLION, but there’s no escaping CRIMSON DAWN: their spies are EVERYWHERE! 
  • As DOMINA TAGGE contends with moles within TAGGE CORPORATION and Aphra struggles with the damage inflicted on her by a POWERFUL ARTIFACT, they strike one last bargain…
  • But who can Aphra really trust?
