Jeffrey Brown is a comic book mastermind, writer, cartoonist, and certified nerd, and for some, an acquired taste. For me, his stuff is great for a giggle and these Star Wars parodies are no exception.
I like Darth Vader and Son best, but Vader’s Little Princess is a close 2nd. Star Wars: Jedi Academy (all Chronicle Books) also has some funny moments.
I love how Brown takes the idea that Vader is Luke and Leia’s Dad (sorry if that’s a spoiler) and has them interacting in normal parent-child moments. Hilarious. Star Wars and average parenting lines take on a whole new meaning…
I am altering the deal. Pray I don’t alter it further.
When I was your age we didn’t even have Star Destroyers.
Your thoughts betray you.
Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate you. (I may have to try this to get my son’s room clean.)
I find your lack of patience disturbing.
If your Dad is a Star Wars fan, these might make a funny Father’s Day gift.
For older (notice I didn’t say more mature) audiences check out Brown’s other works including but not limited to: Clumsy, I Am Going To Be Small, Cats Are Weird and More Observations, Bighead, Little Things, and more.
It’s pointless to resist.
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S STAR WARS by Ian Doescher (Quirk Books)
Take the storytelling of George Lucas. Mix in the beauty and sublime elegance of William Shakespeare. The coupling gives us this dramatic, officially licensed do over of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
If you thought it was epic before, you haven’t seen anything.
Complete with stunning Elizabethan illustrations.
The magnificent Iambic Pentameter makes your heart thump almost as loudly as the very first time you saw Star Wars.
New life hath this tome breathed into the War in the Stars.
Thank you, Master Doescher, this is verily a delight.
