Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #34 comes out NEXT Wednesday July 19th, 2023 but Marvel has shared a 5 page preview to give Star Wars fans a taste of what to expect.
The STARWEIRD! The Starweird are a ridiculously named species that floats around in space (similar to a purrgil) and has a strong connection to the dark side of the force. At least I think they do, it’s a pretty obscure species that was originally created for role-playing game that came out in the 2000s.
While I don’t love the name the creature is pretty sick looking and spooky as all hell. The Starweird first appeared in comics in last month’s Doctor Aphra #33. I think it was a significant enough appearance to call it the Starweird’s first full appearance, but that’s for the market to decide.
I’m personally getting the Kyle Hotz variant as it shares the first cover appearance with the cover A and I like the art better. Hyle Hotz is incredible. I’ll also be getting the Jerry Ordway “classic trade dress” variant because I’m a sucker for retro comic covers.
Check out the full preview below.
