Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

"Luke, I am your father."

Darth Vader's got his hands full keeping the Rebel Alliance quashed for the Emperor - but it turns out he's also got his hands full with a 4-year-old Luke Skywalker.  This short, laugh-out-loud hilarious series of graphic vignettes revels in all the joys and frustrations of fatherhood with a precocious son who is strong in the Force.  My favorite?  Poor Vader's frustration with Luke's looooooove of the band The Ewoks.  Imagine 'Jub Jub' on repeat.  For four hours.  Makes Yo Gabba Gabba look pretty good!

If you're looking for a laugh and have ever hung out with a 4-year-old, whether it was your own kid or someone else's, you've got to take 5 minutes and crack up over Darth Vader and Son!
