PREVIEW: Doctor Aphra #24 Has A Lot of Sith Potential

Star Wars Han Solo and Chewbacca 6 (2022)

Star Wars Doctor Aphra #24 is out next week and we’ve got the official preview for you right here on this post. There are a handful of comic books out the same day that I think are potential keys down the road. In my mind this week is big one. You can see all new comics coming out on September 26th here.

I’ve already spoken about the Star Wars Doctor Aphra #24 issue on my instagram account, in different groups and forums, and on this site and why I’m excited about it.

Here’s a quick recap:

#1. Cover A by Rickie Yagawa is the first cover appearance of Miril. Miril was a member of the Ascendant and was the Spark Eternal’s last host (before Aphra) who first appeared in Doctor Aphra #22. During an attack by the Sith she sacrificed herself to keep the Sith from getting their hands on the Spark Eternal. It appears Spark and Aphra are going to dive back into a memory and relive (or possible change?) that final encounter with the Sith.

#2. The cover also includes 7 presumed Sith. Nothing is concrete but any cover that has red lightsabers on it from unknown characters is something I pay attention to. Could be nameless characters but the potential of getting a new named Sith or the first of a known Sith from either legends or canon make it worth keeping an eye on. While none are likely identifiable on the cover it’s logical to assume some fight with the Sith will be in the issue.

So nothing is certain aside from the issue being interesting from a speculation standpoint.

See the full preview below and get your pre-orders in if you haven’t already.
