Darth Vader and Son
Darth Vader and Son | Jeffrey Brown
33 posts | 63 read | 18 to read
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 otherexcept 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. Plus, this is the fixed-format version, which looks almost identical to the print edition.

This was great for Star wars loving parents who want to train their young in the power of the force. Okay, let's be real. It‘s a collection of star wars comics that acts as if Vader was around to raise Luke. Many of the scenes are cute or funny, but as a book, it has no real flow. Fun, but not for all.

A lot of fun. So many great references, and the idea is just humorous. Seeing Darth Vader put a band-aid on 4-year old Luke tickles me.

So. My father (pictured), who last time he was here proceeded to write in my books, told me this morning that he hasn't written in other people's books in *years*. He also told me he thought I had not read *any* of my books, since I had not written anything in them. My father, ladies and gentlemen.

wanderinglynn 😂 Love his logic! My mom writes her name in books, even if she knows she‘s not going to keep in. 5y
tournevis @wanderinglynn Writing one's name, I can understand, even if the book is going to leave. It's a bit like "Kilroy was here". But my fatjr's 5y
tournevis @wanderinglynn ... father's logic escapes me. 5y
Lindy Ha! I love hearing about habits connected to reading. I hope it doesn‘t distress you to find writing in your books. 5y
tournevis @Lindy If it was out there before I bought it, I can live with it. If it was done after I acquired the book, please don't! 5y

Tomorrow‘s a big day (5/4!!!) and one must dress appropriately, right? From the moment I saw Episode 4 in the theatre, and all I‘ll say is that I had not yet hit double digits, I loved everything about Star Wars. Still do. Episode 4 is my favorite movie of all time precisely because it is the movie that made me fall in love with movies and epic stories...and HAN SOLO!!! So now all I have to do is figure out which T-shirt I want to wear tomorrow...

I was at a conference for youth librarians today, and Jeffrey Brown was the closing keynote speaker. His speech was hilarious and touching. He closed by asking not how do we help kids to reach *for* the stars, but how do we help kids *reach* the stars. His answer was that we do it together. It was very inspiring. I can‘t wait to check out his upcoming books!

britt_brooke Awesome! 5y

Not really a diehard fan of Star Wars but this book cracked me up. Like, can you imagine Darth Vader being a dutiful dad to his son Luke?!? 😂😭 This illustrated book is just so full of ironies and sarcasms. Perfect for Star Wars fans! 💖 Xoxo

I bought the first two books in this series (Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess) for my brother in law's birthday last year. They were a hit (which was a surprise because he never reads) so this year I will send him the other two. #inagalaxyfarfaraway #maybookflowers. Happy May the Fourth Everyone!

DeborahSmall Jeff Brown created a small cartoon for my son Sam when Daniel was about 2, Sam had created his own villain: 'chocolate hands' http://jeffreybrowncomics.blogspot.co.uk/2009/03/bighead-vs-chocolate-hands.html... 6y

#seasonreadings2016 day 18: #bookswithpictures
A late entry today! It's been a busy day with lots of cookie making. With two boys jostling each other and trying to grab the cookie cutters and pull the wrong parts of the dough it takes even longer! But we did it! And now we've got cookies for all the teachers and some family friends! 🍪🍪🍪 Anyway here is my book with pictures because it's so cute.

Sarahr875 I saw the daughter one at a book fair a month or two ago and just fell in love. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan but these books are the very best 6y

I might have acquired the ebook on sale. Don't judge me! I can't help that between Black Friday and Cyber Monday I acquire A LOT of new ebooks. How could I resist Darth Vader telling four-year old Luke that he finds his lack of patience disturbing? This is perfect for Star Wars fans, of course. I do think it can be appreciated by anyone with children in their life, though. I really want to buy this for someone with small children.

britt_brooke Thanks for the reminder!! Santa is supposed to be brining this to my boys. 😉👍🏻 6y

Love this, because I grew up watching Star Wars, and so I figured Little should see them. He calls this one "the ice cream one." And he loves it.
