Review

"This is a must-have book for any Star Wars fan"
- Nerdist

" 7 out of 10 stars. Released with perfect timing for Father's Day, this is a great little present for the Rebel or Imperial father in any family."
- Starburst Magazine

"Last year, talented artist Jeffrey Brown delivered a massive hit with his charming re-imagining of the relationship between the Dark Lord of the Sith and his four-year-old son Luke Skywalker. Now, he repeats his success with another illustrated outing focusing on Darth Vader and his daughter Princess Leia. The cover, for example, shows the Star Wars villain having to sit through a toy tea party with Leia and her stuffed Ewok. Throughout the book, the put-upon dad has to suffer through many of his daughter's annoying teenage demands, from dating undesirables to sitting through a horrible ballet performed by Jar Jar Binks. Especially wonderful is a wistful one where the Sith master gets misty remembering how sweet and innocent Leia used to be when she was a little girl. Chronicle has also published a must-have Postcard edition of Darth Vader and Son ($9.95). The two volumes make thoughtful gifts for all the Star Wars fanatics in your life-or anyone who grew up loving MAD magazine's clever spoofs of pop culture icons."
-Animation Magazine

"Jeffrey Brown's new book of Star Wars-inspired cartoons is a must-have for any fan. "
-USA Today's Pop Candy

One of the "Great Illustrated Books of 2013"
-Chicago Tribune

Father's Day Gift Guide Pick
"Leading the Galactic Empire is cake compared to raising a teenage girl. A follow-up to the best-selling Darth Vader and Son, this sweet, funny graphic novel imagines Darth Vader's fatherhood trials and tribulations with a coming-of-age Leia."
-Daily Candy

"if anyone wants to buy me a Mother's Day gift. I'm just saying. This would be perfect."
- Mommyish.com

"hilarious"
- Game Informer Magazine

"When Vader stares down Princess Leia asking "What exactly is it that you do?" Brown captures the impenetrability of knowing one's parents. Sounds like a stretch, perhaps. And yet his "Vader" books capture the everyday push-pull between parents and kids - oppressor and rebel, you might say - so thoughtfully and cleverly, the 'Star Wars' stuff recedes at times."
- Chicago Tribune

"We can tell you that it's seriously cute.
-The Mary Sue

"This small collection of drawings will delight any Star Wars fan."
-North Shore News

" The joys, frustrations, and awkward moments are all played out with a lot of truth, and adding the Dark Lord of the Sith being the parent is just a delightful twist...It's a delight to see the Dark Lord of the Sith dealing with a feisty teenager, and parents and kids will immensely enjoy this book for Father's Day and every day of the year."
School Library Journal

"Jeffrey Brown has once again done the impossible - he has proven that Star Wars-based comedy can be fresh, irreverent and deeply funny. Whether or not you have (or want) kids of your own, this is essential reading."
-Geekadelphia

"It's delightful. As the father of two girls, I can relate to Vader's frustrations and sometimes helplessness in the face of a strong-willed daughter. Sometimes, the Force just isn't enough."
- GeekDad.com

"It isn't always all about Luke. For Star Wars fanatics, a hilarious look at Darth Vader raising a pint-sized Princess Leia-and all the parenting trials (saying no to the metal bikini, for one) that go with it."
- Real Simple

"If you're a 'Star Wars' fan, a parent, or both, Vader's Little Princess will speak to you, reassuring you that even if you had complete mystical mastery over The Force and the awe and respect of legions of stormtroopers -- being a parent is still the most daunting and rewarding task of all."
-The Trades

"If this wasn't a Star Wars book, I'd still buy it, because Jeffrey Brown is great. But it is also a Star Wars book, and a sequel at that. Brown's funny, touching, and incisive view of parenthood under the guise of a pop culture dalliance is worth your time and money, and I can't wait to place it next to its predecessor on the shelf."
-iFanboy

"I know Jeffrey Brown's Vader and Son was a big success because everyone to whom I showed it, loved it. However, as the father of a 4-year-old girl I'm looking forward even more to Vader's Little Princess. Maybe there'll be a cartoon about little Leia inexplicably belting out 'Call Me Maybe'."-
- Comic Book Resources

"Heartwarming is a word bandied about a bit much, to the point where it has lost currency. So let me be clear here that I am not using it lightly. Vader's Little Princess is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, with the power to believably cast one of cinema's all-time great villains as a believable, fallible, embarrassed and embarrassing Dad. This book is equal parts love letter to Star Wars and tribute to the wonder, emotions, and trials of parenthood...Both funny and touching, Vader's Little Princess shows again that Jeffrey Brown is as good at making this kind of book as he is the autobiographical, indie comix for which he was once better known. Not to be missed."
-Comic Buzz

"Have an intergalactic storytime with your mini Padawan. Check out the amusingly clever Vader's Little Princess"
-Parents Magazine

"Vader's Little Princess is one of those books that had me turning to my husband after every page and announcing, 'This is so going to be you in a few years!' Darth Vader calling up warm and fuzzy feelings of parental camaraderie in the face of raising a daughter? That's what makes this book so awesome...This is a hilarious and surprisingly insightful take on fathers and daughters. I felt for Vader a little bit by the end."
-Geek Mom

"Vader's Little Princess is an imaginative book that you won't want to miss"
- Lansing State Journal

"Vader's Little Princess is a perfect book to give to a little geek girl, as artwork is fun to look at, and the words easy to read for young readers. Together with Darth Vader and Son, these two little books belong on any nerd's shelf, and Star Wars fans are missing out if they don't pick up a copy of each."
-Nerdspan

"Darth Vader and Son was so successful and superb, that the next book Vader's Little Princess has hit stands this week to much rejoicing from fans. Following a similar theme to the first book, Vader's Little Princess focuses on the relationship between Darth Vader and Leia, as she goes through her 'rebellious' teens. Both Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess are...definitely worth the Imperial credits."
-Bleeding Cool

About the Author

Jeffrey Brown is the author of numerous graphic novels and comics, including Cat Getting Out of a Bag, Cats are Weird, and Darth Vader and Son. A lifelong Star Wars fan, he lives in Chicago with his wife and six-year-old son.

More About the Author

After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he completed his studies, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, Clumsy, appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. Established as an overly sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between more autobiography examining the minutiae of everyday life and whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for. His most popular works include Clumsy, Unlikely, AEIOU, and Every Girl is the End of the World For Me, comprising the so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy" and its epilogue. More recently his autobiographical work has included Little Things and Funny Misshapen Body. His parody The Incredible Change-Bots, the Ignatz Award winning I am going to be small and humorous cat book Cat Getting Out Of A Bag all stand out amongst his humor work, while his Sulk series continues to take on a variety of subjects with satire. Jeffrey's work has appeared in a host of anthologies from McSweeney's to The Best American Comics, as well as mainstream books like The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror and Marvel's Strange Tales. His original artwork has been exhibited in New York, Paris, and Chicago. Brown has been featured on NPR's This American Life and even created a short animated music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son.

And Star Wars fan, I found this hilarious.

This is a collection of cartoons of Darth Vader spending quality time with his little girl, Princess Leia. From Leia as a very small girl to Leia as an attitude and angst ridden teen, Vader has to deal with the complexities of fathering a girl.

I feel his pain. I liked the ones where Vader is holding back his first reaction to keep from hurting his daughter's feelings, or where he is patient with her when he really doesn't want to be. But the ones where Leia introduces her boyfriend, an adolescent Han Solo are side-splitting.

An excellent gift for any nerd dad who needs reassurance that what he does for his daughter is normal.

Completely adorable! Hilarious! Loved it! A must for Star Wars Fans! I laughed all the way through it, and kept thinking, "oh, my GOSH... my kids!". But, if you get this one, you have to get Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son (Star Wars (Chronicle))

This book takes the reader on a journey of raising a daughter from toddler to teen in a humorous Star Wars style. While Jeffrey Brown's previous book Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son (Star Wars (Chronicle)) stayed within the toddler and early elementary years, only a few pages of this book are dedicated to the younger years. It mainly ventures into the teen years with clothing disputes, driving lessons, dating, school and friends. Some pages are not as funny as others, but show Vader in a typical father role and are funny enough for a smirk. Other pages were down-right hilarious! It's a cute book that any Star Wars loving parent of a daughter would adore.

The problem with "Vader's Little Princess" isn't in it's illustration, but rather it's content. The jokes just don't work as well as they do in "Darth Vader And Son," and I'd hazard a guess that has much to do with the fact that author Jeffrey Brown does not have daughters of his own. Where "Darth Vader And Son" was written with the understanding that comes from being a father to small boys, the jokes and content in "Vader's Little Princess" appear to stem from stereotypes of what one thinks life with a daughter would be.

Overall I'd say that "Vader's Little Princess" is a good title, but it's failure to grasp the subtleties of being a father to little girls causes it to fall short of the greatness that the previous title held.

Not NEARLY as good as the Luke version of it. Painfully gender normative, esp' around the whole young girl turning woman awkward dad humor. I find I don't want to read it with my kiddo.

Good artwork, great conversation piece, but there's nothing here that will keep a kid interested. I was hoping for a book to share with my daughter, and this book was not it. There's no "story" or "stories" here; it's a series of illustrations with either a sight gag or a one-liner. Only about 10% of pages made me chuckle. And those that are funny rely on irony, so buy it for yourself, not for your kid(s).

This is fun for what it is, but you cant really read it as a story. These are chronological comics that remind me of a calendar made into a book.

What if our beloved Lord Vader was the responsible to raise Leia ? Would she become a rebel eventually ? Star Wars fans must have this one ! The cover shows Leia still a little child but inside you will find a teenager Leia making Vader wondering what is more hard to accomplish : defeat the rebels or tame his little cute girl ...

Star Wars fans ...buy this book !
