    Could be; Aphra escaping because of outside influence over her tricking Vader a second time would be more plausible and would leave Vader's reputation intact. Course, that all assumes that Marvel wants her around; if they're done with her, killing her off might be their preferred option.

    I'm really behind on my SW comics at the moment. I really enjoy this series though. Hopefully they follow it up with a worthy successor.

    Hope she survives and returns in some role again. I always liked reading about her. Getting a series and still being like her was a surprise. the droids helped too^^

    I want her to live as well. I think, though, it depends on whether Marvel/LucasFilm want the character around as a possibility for future storytelling or want a definitive end (not sure which of the two has the final say on things).

    I think with the new trilogy coming to a close that the focuses will most likely be put on the new era. They may just shelf Aphra and use her at a later date, fast forward to what she did after ROTJ. Say she was in hiding from the empire with a few flash back issues here and there to show what she was doing. Or as you said before just straight up kill her off but I really hope they don't. I'm hoping that they do show here in the era after ROTJ when the galaxy is if flux post empire.
    Surely not everybody was kung fu fighting

    Looks like Marvel is planning on restarting both Star Wars and Darth Vader, this time set between ESB and ROTJ. Doesn’t seem like they’re planning any comics set around the Sequel Trilogy yet besides the Kylo mini.

    Seems like this will be pretty much Disney's "Shadows of the Empire". It's a part of the timeline they've mostly ignored apart from some of the YA stuff.

    One of the things I'd like to see developed is Luke's change. At the end of ESB he's not in the best shape at the end, but by ROTJ he seems to have far more confidence and maturity. Although part of this can be do of course to his lessons from Yoda and being somewhat humbled by Vader.

    Also why it took so long. At the end of ESB they're set to meet at the "rendevous point on Tatooine" but both the timeline and the film itself seem to state that some time has passed. "Shadows" explanation was that Fett wasn't able to get to Jabba right away due to other Bounty Hunters trying to steal Han away from him.

    Also gotta wonder if they'll tackle the Bothan spies. I think the first series did a pretty good job explaining how the Alliance evolved from Rogue One/ANH to Empire and ROTJ-The Mon Calamari formally joining, the leadership getting mostly killed off, so It'll be pretty interesting to see how they do that. Also probably throw in General Madine there as well (The story about him being an ex-Imperial is still canon).

    Not totally related but I didn't think this gripe warranted it's own thread. I was just looking at solicitations for the comics coming out today and noticed this trade is due out:

    And it doesn't contain the last three issues of the story! Just another reason why I've hated these bloated 8 part stories, they don't read well and if this trade is any indicator then they don't collect well either. Hopefully when the book comes back we get smaller stories.

    The Empire ascendant previews seem to show Han hanging out at a bar, wonder if that'll be Marvel/Disney's version of the bounty hunter on Ord Mantell.
