There are a whole mix of comic book characters out there right now that have potential to explode and become the 'next big thing'.
In a new series of articles we take a look at some of these future stars and highlight some of the key issues they feature in. This time round we have a look at one of the rising stars of the Star Wars Universe : Doctor Aphra.
Doctor Aphra seems to be popping up everywhere presently - and with her featuring in games and her own solo series you have to imagine a big screen debut might be just around the corner.
Her first appearance in Darth Vader #3 (cover above) is now well documented. This is a book to be grabbing if you can find it cheap as there are copies to be had out there at cover. There is also a 1:25 variant (below) not to be missed if it comes in at the right price as that is much scarcer.
Her own solo series is also one to keep an eye on with a vast array of #1 covers including this stunning Legends Comics / Brain Trust Ashley Witter variant.
Expect Aphra to be around for some time to come - her star is only just beginning to rise!
