Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown
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 comic 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 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.
This book is more for the nerdy parent then the kid, that much is sure. My first reaction was it was bigger than I expected. It’s dimensions are quite petite but it is more pages than your standard picture book. Some of the jokes require a bigger nerd than others but all I know are big nerds. Each page is an individual witty vignette. My personal favorite was the “not the droids you’re looking for” joke.
