Kieron Gillen Works To Raise Voter Turnout… For Star Wars Action Figure Fan Poll Featuring Doctor Aphra

Posted by April 29, 2017 Comment


When he isn’t downing pints with Bleeding Cool Rumormonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston at the local pub or starring as Nebula in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kieron Gillen writes the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic for Marvel. So when Gillen found out that Doctor Aphra, who he co-created with artist Salvador Larroca during their Darth Vader comic, could be the next character to get a 3.75-inch toy release with Hasbro’s Vintage Collection retro packaging, as reported yesterday by Bleeding Cool, he took to social media to motivate voters:

Aphra is currently tied with Ahsoka from Star Wars Rebels, with each holding 26% of the vote.


Can comics fandom hope to defeat Star Wars Rebels fandom in this epic nerd showdown on the battlefield of Star Wars toy geekery? Head over to to make your voice heard, and we’ll find out.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
