Vader's Little Princess

You have a whole galaxy to conquer, a rebellion to crush and as if that wasn't hard enough, you have to look after the kids, who have a rebellious streak of their own.

Darth Vader probably isn't the first person you'd go to for parenting advice, and let's face it, it took him long enough to even admit he was a father. He may crush usurpers in his fingertips and destroy whole planets just to make a point, but when it comes to your own kids, you have to make concessions.

Vader Princess
In the Star Wars Tales comics, there were plenty of stories that had fun with the characters and the Star Wars universe, and illustrator Jeffrey Brown went down that route with his book Darth Vader and Son, which became a bestseller. In his latest book Vader's Little Princess, he chronicles the less publicised relationship with his daughter Princess Leia. Even when taken out of the Star Wars context, so many of the scenes will be familiar to generations of both father and daughter, but made all the more hilarious because of who the characters are, especially Vader's parental reactions to some of the original trilogy's more iconic moments, such as the slave girl outfit.

For all the dad's out there, this is a must-have to share with your own little princess. And it is also a great addition to the library of any Star Wars fan, and it's out in time for Star Wars day, May the 4th.
