New Picture Book Darth Vader and Son is Melting Our Dark Sith Heart (Excerpt)

Jeffrey Brown

Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown

Awwwww. The above image is a page from artist Jeffrey Brown’s new picture book Darth Vader and Son, newly out from Chronicle Books. The book imagines a universe where Darth Vader actually gets to raise his son Luke and it is so disarmingly charming that you really stop caring that this is an evil Sith lord. Oh, Obi-Wan, why did you spirit those children away?

Check out some more pages from the picture book below.

Want more? Visit the Chronicle Books portal for it, which includes an awesome pro-literacy poster you can download for free, finger puppets, and more!

(Also you should buy the book so we can see a Darth Vader and Daughter follow-up.)

This reminds me of the "iharthdarth" comic strip that came out some years ago--it's still up on Livejournal (remember them?).

I like this book. And I understand it's autobiographical, and based on his relationship with his son. But Jeffrey Brown screwed up big time for me by not making this about Vader and Luke AND LEIA.

Of course! We need DARTH VADER AND DAUGHTER, and DARTH VADER AND TWINS.

Very cute, and yeah, I agree with @5 welltemperedwriter--it is like iharthdarth.
