Star Wars Has Its Indiana Jones, Now It Gets A Sherlock Holmes

Posted by August 5, 2015 One Comment

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca already introduced Aphra, the Indiana Jones of the Star Wars Universe, working for Darth Vader into their titular villain book. And a superhero team.

Well, in today’s issue of Darth Vader, it’s time for a new archetype. Sherlock Holmes.


In the form of Inspector Thanoth.


Yeah, he won’t last long. So, which archetype will come next?

And yes, with Siege, Darth Vader and The Wicked + The Divine, it really is Kieron Gillen Day today…
