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

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…
