Luke Skywalker and Doctor Aphra Team Up in Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel
Marvel Comics is gearing up for a new adventure with two unlikely leads, Luke Skywalker and Doctor Aphra in Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel.
The team-up will be a crossover in a five-part story that puts the cast of Star Wars and Doctor Aphra all in the same place, a creepy, Gothic horrific place called the ‘ Screaming Citadel’.
In Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel, Doctor Aphra comes to Luke Skywalker looking for help in finding the castle as well aid in unlocking the secrets within. Her selling point? Whatever’s inside can help him advance in becoming a Jedi. Other characters set to appear in this crossover include Han Solo, Princess Leia, Sana, and the murderous droids Triple-000 and BT-1.
Here’s the solicit:
Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side-by-side into the darkest corners of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams with Doctor Aphra! The good Doctor has an offer for this flyboy farm boy – help her, and she’ll provide him with information crucial on his quest to become a Jedi. With an offer he can’t refuse on the table, this unlikely duo finds themselves deep into the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel! Can Luke find what he’s looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will the Citadel’s Queen and the dark forces lurking within make their journey a one-way trip?!
The first part of the story will appear in the one-shot Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel # 1 by Gillen and Marco Checcheto. Then it would criss-cross between Star Wars (Jason Aaron, Salvador Larroca) and Doctor Aphra (Gillen, Andrea Broccardo and Antonio Fabel)
