Naked Reading 2023 XV
I've updated my Naked Reading 2023 page with my latest read, absorbed in Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #21–30: Spark Eternal arc.
This ten-issue run of my favourite Star Wars comic series featuring my favourite Star Wars character delivered in so many ways! Two things defined the arc; the relationship between Aphra and the Spark Eternal that inhabits her body; and the efforts of all her friends and former lovers to try and rescue her. Both delivered emotional impact, some great character development, fun expansion of the ancient Star Wars world, and some spectacular, and sometimes pretty wild, visuals. Among the best story arcs in a series that is always great!
That's my mini-review, but I've also written more extensive thoughts on my book review blog.
Plus as usual as a little bonus for my Patreon supporters, I've shared some alternate takes of this self-portrait there.
