Pressestimmen

“The central conflict of ‘Star Wars’ looks considerably different — and much, much funnier — through Brown’s eyes. “- Comic Book Resources

“When the first Star Wars film conquered the world in 1977, no one could have possibly foreseen it going on to become such an ubiquitous part of our cultural heritage. Now even parenthood can be viewed through the filter of the Sith lord Darth Vader. Jeffrey Brown (Incredible Change-Bots) crashes headlong into George Lucas’s galaxy far, far away with endearing, funny-and fully licensed-results. A series of full-page gag cartoons focusing on the ‘what if?’ of Darth Vader raising a four-year-old Luke Skywalker, the book twists father/son moments into scenarios within the Star Wars playground. For instance, the addition of a wailing little Luke turns the Bounty Hunter scene into, as one bounty hunter’s thought balloon puts it, Awkward! Trick-or-treating, toy shopping, a day at the zoo, and more are rejiggered with a lighthearted, charming tone. However, the book also provides ample proof that adding a babysitting Darth Vader to any Star Wars situation makes it gently humorous. Brown’s signature scratchy style is embellished with full color and stripped-down likenesses.”- Publisher’s Weekly

“It’s fun to see Darth Vader as sort of a sensitive guy.” -Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex

“Just let me just be the first to tell you that, if you play your cards right and get him a copy, Darth Vader And Son is gonna have Dad laughing coffee through his nose this year at brunch.” -Babble.com

“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

“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?” -TOR.com

“As a Star Wars generation kid-disclaimer: the original Star Wars movies, not the prequels-this little book was pure joy. I now read it with my five-year-old daughter, who cracks up at little Luke and a much kinder, gentler Darth Vader.”- Chicago Magazine

“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. “
