The book’s fundamental Indiana Jones quality come from the fact that it’s about an archaeologist in the Star Wars universe. The thing about the Star Wars universe is it’s really, really old. That’s kind of the thrill of it for me — taking a Star Wars thing and doing something you have not seen before with it. -- Kieron Gillen

"I told you so" is much more satisfying when you can say it from a safe distance or after the crisis is over, yes. That way at least there's a good chance you'll have the leisure time to enjoy it rather than needing to save your breath for running like hell.

See, I have no idea of Aphra's ethnicity - this artist tends to draw her as more Asian, but others (most recently in "Screaming Citadel", and also in Darth Vader) have made her seem more gnerically caucasian. Does this bother anyone else?

She's definitely supposed to have Asian features. But yeah, several artists either don't' get the memo or just can't draw anything but caucasian features.

Even so, she has very different facial features than she had when she first appeared. I like how she looks here, very pug-like, but I really wish artists would keep stuff like body type and faces consistent among characters too.

From where is Maria Hill meant to be, for instance?

Huh. I mostly know her from Vader, but I always figured her more of a Mediterranean ethnicly. Guess it just makes your point about different artists not sticking with a single look.

Though there again, in her initial cover appearance she did look a lot more Asian...

I think that particular image may be more of a camera angle issue.

I always read her as "generically brown", IE: She could be anything from spanish to south american to iranian to indian.

Kieron confirmed that Aphra would be asian (or whatever the equivalent is in a world that doesn't have an Asia).

Dunno, feels like most artists are at least trying to make her look asian.

The Star Wars Radio drama had Obi-Wan saying Wookiees are VERY picky about who they hang out with. This seems to continue that idea.
