Description

Doctor Aphra #20 delivers a punch to the gut with an unexpected yet cataclsymic cliff hangar, while Han Solo & Chewbacca #2 provides a well-paced, all-encompassing story featuring Han wondering if he's the victim of a con or if Ovan really his dad.

Both issues move at a solid clip and provide compelling illustrations, color artistry and lettering.
