Michael Morris: Darth Vader and Son

Darth Vader and Son
Chronicle Books, 2012
Hardcover, 64 pages, $14.95

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 comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other . . . except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Jeffrey Brown's 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 light-saber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, and Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star. The book is designed by Michael Morris (Graphic Design 2004). A New York Times best seller!
