APHRA FINDS A NIHIL PATH ENGINE!? This week, Mike embarks on the second volume of the 2020 Doctor Aphra comics; The Engine Job, where Aphra searches for a device that could change the way the galaxy uses hyperspace, using tech that is over 200 years old! Aphra is joined by Sana Starros and together they search for the path engine while being pursued by Vukorah; head of the Unbroken Clan all while Just Lucky’s side story shows he’s having problems of his own! All of this, plus the many connections within this story are discussed, including ray shields, Corellia & more!
These comics are set after Empire Strikes Back but before Return Of The Jedi, in 3-4 ABY and lead into the War Of The Bounty Hunters crossover event (tackled in episode 60 of SWCIC).
All issues were written by Alyssa Wong, with Victor Olazaba as inker, Rachelle Rosenberg as colour artist, with Robert Gill & Ray-Anthony Height as pencillers on issue 6, Ray-Anthony Height also as penciller on issue 10 and Minkyu Jung as penciller on issues 7, 8 & 9.
