Star Wars: Doctor Aphra is an ongoing comic book series that began publication on December 7, 2016.[9] It was originally written by Star Wars: Darth Vader scribe Kieron Gillen. It was then briefly co-written by him and Simon Spurrier before writing duties were transferred fully to Spurrier after Remastered. The series was first teased as Star Wars: Classified on September 19, 2016,[10] before being officially announced on October 12, 2016.[11]

The series takes place between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back — mainly on the galactic frontier—and follows from the conclusion of Star Wars: Darth Vader. It focuses on the titular character, "rogue archaeologist" Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra, her droid duo, the "murderbots" Triple-Zero and Beetee-One, Wookiee bounty hunter Black Krrsantan, and Vulaada Klam, Aphra's side-kick later in the series.

Designed to be the moral inverse of Indiana Jones, the misadventures of her and her eponymous crew are a dark reflection of the adventures of the mainline series' heroes.

In 2019, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra was nominated for the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book.[12]

The current run is set to be concluded in its fortieth issue on December 11, 2019. A relaunch is planned for April 2020 under the same title—written by Alyssa Wong and with art by Marika Cresta—the events of that series will continue Aphra's story between Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[13]
