Book Description

April 4 2012 Star Wars (Chronicle)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, Funny, and touching........ April 26 2012
By S.G.S TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I picked this up yesterday, and I wondered if I made a sound investement. By the time work was over I had read through this book at least 5 times, and loved every page. A few colleagues also read it and the Star Wars fans loved it, but the non fans( and my wife ) did not see what the big deal was. They did not think it was bad by any stretch, but they just did not get the dialogue like a fan would. IE. " Your skills are complete." , " Your lack of patience is disturbing.".

Production.

The book quality is very nice, with thick, quality paper. I was very impressed with with the simple, but detailed art, that lends its own little comic jems. IE. Little Lando.

If you are a fan, buy this book quickly as it looks like the production run is small, and you will surely enjoy this as much as I did.

BTW. If you are a dad you will appreciate this book even more.....

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny, and I'm not even a Star Wars fan... April 18 2012
By Brie
Format:Hardcover
I admit it. I don't even like Star Wars. But this book is hilarious. And you don't have to be a Star Wars fan OR a parent to appreciate the humour in it. The drawings are well done. It's a book I just had to own, but it would also make a great present for someone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun book for Star Wars fans and dads June 23 2012
By A. Volk #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a relatively short book about what it would be like if Darth Vader was a loving and involved father to Luke. Each page is its own joke, so it's really a collection of jokes. Many of them involve using actual Darth Vader quotes in new and funny contexts (the others involve scenes or themes from the movies). For example, Darth says "this is not the one you want" (actually said by Obi Wan) and waves his hand at Luke when Luke wants a Jar-Jar toy. Little quips like that make this a fun book to read, particularly for dads who know their Star Wars. I didn't laugh at each and every page, so I couldn't quite give it five stars (vs. say, Go the F to Sleep). But it's still a lot of fun to read, and I think I'll be sharing it with a few other fathers I know who are also Star Wars fans. So if you know (and like) Star Wars and want a cute and funny book aimed at Dads but funny to any fan, this is a fun book to pick up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I had expected Nov. 4 2013
By Nicola Manning-Mansfield HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I enjoyed Brown's latest book "Jedi Academy" so much I wanted to check out these other two books I had heard so much about. This was not what I had expected and I only thought it was OK. A small book filled with one page comic strips featuring what it would have been like for Vader to be a father to Luke when he was a little boy. An extensive knowledge of Star Wars is needed to get these jokes, especially the original trilogy, with some familiarity of the characters in the new movies also. I didn't really find any of the comics hilarious, some were cute, some I didn't get and others I just didn't think were funny. The art on the other hand is very cute and funny. Vader looks so awkward in his role as "Dad". I don't see this as being a book for kids. To me it seems more aimed at adults, parent specific humour, and because of the father theme would make a good Father's Day present for the Star Wars fan dad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reviews are misleading Dec 4 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So I bought it after reading the reviews and am pretty disappointed, I was expecting more than a child's picture book. Sure there are some good lines in it but nothing really funny. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift but its not appropriate for anyone that I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book
Everything about this book is great. The artwork is quite well done and the cartoons are so lovable. It is hard covered so it is a very nice edition to add to any collection.
