  • Variant cover art by Rod Reis (1:25)
  • 💬 If a Murder Droids variant cover weren't enough, this is also the first cameo appearance of Doctor Aphra's father who would be essential to her origin if a likely TV series rolls around
  • 💬 This is also the first issue of Aphra's first solo series and with her introduction in Darth Vader #3 continually increasing in price, collectors begin to gravitate to these secondary keys
