"When I was sort of thinking about Aphra, the core of it was, Star Wars is about these archetypes. Archetypes, if you write them very badly, they become cliched. These very powerful, direct characters. You know, you’re not writing Proust. That’s not the point. The point is to be these big figures. A lot of my work was, 'Okay, in terms of Star Wars, what sorts of characters fit well into that universe?' And it was, 'Oh! The Indiana Jones archaeologist archetype.'" -- Kieron Gillen

I'm reminded of that joke from that one Jedi Prince trilogy riff: " Believe me, you're better off not knowing about [the Massassi] culture. "

(There's a compare/contrast for you- the Massassi/" Homo Tortor " from that one Crossed thing Gillen did.)

My first thought from seeing that cover: "oh no she's cute"

"You have five more seconds of smug time, then we have to run for our lives."

Oh, Aphra. Never change. And never stop running.
