If you’re a Star Wars fan like me, I’d highly recommend a series of short books by Jeffrey Brown, a comic book writer from Grand Rapids, Michigan. His humorous portrayal of Darth Vader as a doting single father to Luke and Leia had me laughing at every turn of the page.
‘Vader’s Little Princess’ is the second in the series and probably my favourite of the three. It documents Darth Vader’s life as he raises his daughter from a small child to a rebellious teenager, and with Star Wars ‘in-jokes’ throughout, it’s brilliantly funny.
I think the reason it works so well is because it combines real life situations we’ve probably all come into contact with at some point in our childhood/parenthood, with Darth Vader playing ‘Daddy’; a totally alien concept to Star Wars fans, and a very funny one too.
All three are definitely worth a read, so check them out.
