Podcast Stardust #147: Doctor Aphra Audiobook Review

by Podcast Stardust

Doctor Aphra’s adventures with Darth Vader are told from Aphra’s point of view in this audiobook original with a full cast.

Readers of Marvel’s Darth Vader comic were first introduced to Doctor Aphra in 2015. The Dark Lord of the Sith recruited Aphra to assist him as he rebuilt his power base and investigated the Rebel pilot that destroyed the Death Star. Now, Sarah Kuhn offers a new audiobook performed by a full cast that tells Aphra’s side of the story from her own point of view.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Aphra as a character – her skills and abilities, plus her personality,
  • Darth Vader’s relationship with Doctor Aphra,
  • Why Aphra chose to relate this story to the listener,
  • Aphra’s missions and adventures for Vader,
  • How this book draws from existing materials, what context is missing, and what materials are new, and
  • How this audiobook is structured and works.
