Jeffrey Brown

On cartoonist Jeffrey Brown and his charming Darth Vader books.

(#1)

From Wikipedia:

Jeffrey Brown (born July 1975) is a cartoonist born in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

… Established as a sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown’s current direction remains split between autobiographical material, examining the minutae of everyday life, whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for, and a wide range of fiction subjects in his series Sulk. Brown has created two series of books set in the Star Wars Expanded Universe…

… Brown has produced four humorous takes on Darth Vader as a hapless father to young Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia: Darth Vader and Son, Vader’s Little Princess, Goodnight, Darth Vader, and Darth Vader and Friends. Brown has also created two volumes in his Jedi Academy series, which are young-adult novels done in the mixed cartooning and diary style of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, set in the Star Wars Universe.

Brown isn’t above outrageous puns, as in this illustration:

The Star Wars original, from Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:

Use the Force, Luke.

force/fork

From Wikipedia:

The Force is a binding, metaphysical, and ubiquitous power in the fictional universe of the Star Wars galaxy created by George Lucas. The supernatural flow of energy originated from the concept of prana, or qi/chi/ki, “the all-pervading vital energy of the universe”.

May the fork be with you, Luke.
