Overview

The Star Wars comedy gem that launched the bestselling series! In this comic reimagining, the Dark Lord of the Sith is just like any other dad.

From Jeffrey Brown, New York Times bestselling author of the beloved Darth Vader and Family books, including Goodnight Darth Vader, Vader's Little Princess, Darth Vader and Friends, and A Vader Family Sithmas, this must-have for Star Wars fans considers 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 reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. 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. A great gift book or self-purchase, especially for the expectant father.

DARTH VADER COMICS: Bringing out the lighter side of the Dark Lord's personality, the Vader and Family books have charmed millions of readers who can't get enough of the Star Wars universe. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown has created a series that appeals to fans of all ages.

STAR WARS DAD GIFTS: An out-of-this-universe gift for any dad, for Father's Day, birthday, baby shower, or just because.

FAN FAVORITE: As noted by Gizmodo, "[I]f 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."
 

Perfect for:
  • Star Wars fans of all ages
  • Everyone who loves the Vader and Family series
  • Stocking stuffers for men
  • Pair with Darth Vader and Son Wall Calendar, Postcards, or Coloring Book to create a fun gift set

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. "
