Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

"WORST AMONG EQUALS" PART THREE! With a huge price on their heads, rogue archaeologist DOCTOR APHRA and her murder-droid companion TRIPLE-ZERO are hunted wherever they run. Of all their pursuers, you might think the deadliest danger comes from the EMPIRE-backed cops…or the deranged undead bounty hunter…or the relentless monster trappers — right? Nope. Because the entire population has tuned in to watch the chase through Triple-Zero's eyes, and EVERYONE has a shot at that reward…

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

WORST AMONG EQUALS
Part III
Rogue archaeologist Doctor Aphra is on the run!
Implanted with a proximity bomb, she's forced to
stay close to her nemesis, the psychotic droid
Triple-Zero, or they will both face an explosive
death!

It's all part of a grand experiment by the evil Doctor
Cornelius Evazan, who watches from afar as Aphra
blunders through the many dangers of the
ultra-lawful Imperial world  Milvayne. Their only
hope is to reach the one specialist who can safely
remove the bombs before the timer runs out!

But with a resurrected Tam Posla on their trail,
thanks to his possession by a Force-powered
fungus, things don't look good. And it seems that
another old frenemy of Aphra's is back from the
dead....

  2. Doctor Aphra 28 is set between issues 21 and 40 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. The events of issue 21 take place after the Battle of Yavin, which marks the beginning of 0 ABY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, while the rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of issue 40. Given that Galactic Atlas dates the destruction of the base to 3 ABY, the issue must therefore have been set between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
