Vader’s Little Princess

Today marks the release of Vader’s Little Princess by author/artist Jeffrey Brown. A sequel of sorts to his highly acclaimed Darth Vader and Son, also from Chronicle Books, the new book imagines the alternate-universe trials and travails of the Dark Lord of the Sith raising the irrepressible Princess. From childhood tea parties and learning to fly a starship to first dates and scanty attire, Leia tests her father’s parenting skills to the max. This book is for children, and the child in every Star Wars fan.

For sneak peeks at the book, check out Newsarama’s interview with Brown and the teaser video at the official Star Wars website. Also be sure not to miss Brown’s appearance on the Full of Sith podcast.
