Overview

What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if "Luke, I am your father" was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet Star Wars® comics reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh parenting books twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include lightsaber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star ("Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!"), and the special bond shared between any father and son. It's a great option for baby shower gifts, especially for the expectant father. Darth Vader and Son is a Star Wars® book that makes a great gift or a just because purchase for yourself!

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"It's fun to see Darth Vader as sort of a sensitive guy." -Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex

"It is funny and sweet and the perfect stocking stuffer for Star Wars-loving dads."
—Victoria Times Colonist

"Hilarious...it's a great book to read to your kids, but it's also a great book for adults. I find myself smiling as I turn each page."
Forcecast.net

"From potty training to lightsaber batting practice to ice cream runs, the endearing absurdity of the duo's dynamic makes for a remix treat of the most entertaining variety."- Brain Pickings

"Fans of Star Wars will be entertained by this heartwarming and comical twist on the epic classic. Through vivid illustrations, author Jeffrey Brown shares the tale of Darth Vader, the hands-on, over-protective dad, who's involved in Luke's everyday activities"
—Real Simple

"Devoted Star Wars fans will love that Brown has taken Darth Vader's lines from the movies-'I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further'—-and cleverly turned them on their heads, finding the humor in both parenting and movie fandom, especially when he pokes gentle fun at the newer movies."
- ICv2.com

"Darth Vader and Son is Brown at the top of his artistic game with beautiful full-color pages, many of which seem imbued with a sincerity that I would expect to find in his next autobiographical work, A Matter of Life. Darth Vader and Son is a book for fathers and sons and Star Wars fans and, well, pretty much anyone who enjoys happiness and smiles. "
-Comics Bulletin

"Darth Vader and Son [is] a sweet mashup of Star Wars and father and son bonding"
- Chicago Tribune

"But if you're one of those sad, empty few who haven't picked up Vader and Son, for yourself, a child, a Star Wars fan, a carbon-based lifeform, or anyone who likes things that are Good - do yourself a favor and pick it up, because not only it is adorable and funny, but it's also one of the best Star Wars books ever. In fact, buy two, because you're going to want to give a copy to somebody over the holidays, no question. "
