Doctor Aphra #40

An epilogue both for the Dark Droids event and for the series as a whole, Doctor Aphra #40 finds our protagonist alive on the planet Rocedila while everyone else, both friend and foe, believes she perished. Finally having the freedom she's always wanted, Doctor Aphra walks into a Jedi Temple and finds the biggest score of her entire career only to discover it's not enough if there is no one to share it with.

With this final issue we see the growth of the character and also the loyalty of her friends who come after Doctor Aphra. It's a nice bookend to the series while setting up Aphra's next adventures with Sana and Magna. Whether she meant to or not, Chelli Lona Aphra has found a crew and a family. However, she's also got new trouble on the horizon with the introduction of Imperial Melchior Votto who hires bounty hunter Raslin Grace to track down the illusive archeologist.
