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.

I loved the concept of this fro the very start, being a film fan and star wars fan. And as a Dad the author really nailed the comedic aspects of their relationship. My kids found the book hilarious, whilst I found it touching. Fun book.

"Hillarious...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"
"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. "

"This book is hilarious, short, and sweet. I'm sure it will have a real wide range of appeal that will include both young and die-hard Star Wars ones. There's probably not wrong reason to gift this, but it would definitely make for a good Father's Day present if you really need an excuse to buy Darth Vader and Son."
--CSI: Librarian
"It is funny and sweet and the perfect stocking stuffer for Star Wars-loving dads."
--Victoria Times Colonist
"Mix "Star Wars" with cuteoverload.com, and you get Jeffrey Brown's adorable "Darth Vader and Son" from Chronicle Books..[it] just had me melting, "awww"-ing and/or giggling over almost every page. And I'm not even a dad.. geek dads, especially those with little kids, would totally appreciate"

"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
"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
"Do you and your Dad have a Star Wars bond? Then you're definitely going to want to nab this sweet and funny comic about Anakin & Luke Skywalker."
-E! Online
"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 cute, and perfect for the little Star Wars fan in your life. It playfully posits the question "What if Darth Vader had actually raised Luke?" Author and illustrator Jeffrey Brown turns run-of-the-mill parenting activities into fun moments full of Star Wars references...Overall, Darth Vader and Son is a fun read for adult Star Wars fans who like a good laugh, as well as for children just learning to love these characters."
