Darth Vader & Son and Vader’s Little Princess Deluxe Box Set is out today from Chronicle Books.

Jeffrey Brown’s beloved reimagination of the Star Wars universe featuring Darth Vader as a devoted dad to young Luke and Leia has charmed and captivated fans of all ages, and the books have become galactic bestsellers and classics in their own right.

This deluxe gift box set reproduces the first two books in the series (Darth Vader & Son and Vader’s Little Princess) in a large format that showcases Brown’s funny, colorful work (and doubles as ‘storybook size’ for those sharing the books with young Jedis).

The slipcase edition also includes two unique, 4-color frameable art prints created just for this set, as well as custom artwork for the slipcase box.

Note this one is 8″ x 8″ in comparison to the normal 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ format of the previous versions.

Goodnight Darth Vader by Jeffrey Brown is a bit different from his previous Star Wars books and very specialized in it’s role. Whether it’s right for you depends entirely on whether you’ll be reading it to your kids or not. Either way, it does have some really nice artwork. Click here for our full review.

goodnight-darth-vader-020714If you’ve enjoyed Jeffrey Brown’s three previous Star Wars books, Darth Vader and Son, Vader’s Little Princess and Jedi Academy, you’re in for another treat in the Vader family saga.  Star Wars.com announced the addition of Goodnight Darth Vader, from Chronicle Books.

Darth Vader: Sith Lord, enemy of the Rebellion, and…bedtime storyteller?

Lucasfilm and Chronicle Books are excited to announce writer/artist Jeffrey Brown’s latest all-ages, fully-illustrated Star Wars book, Goodnight Darth Vader. It’s bedtime in the Star Wars universe, and Darth Vader’s parenting skills are being tested anew in this delightful followup to the breakout New York Times Bestsellers Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess.

Vader may be ready for his kids to go to sleep, but his twins, Luke and Leia, want a bedtime story first — one that involves the aliens, heroes, villains, and monsters of their world. From Han Solo and Chewbacca to Boba Fett and baby Ewoks, from the wampa ice creature to Jawas, all of the galaxy’s denizens are getting ready for a night’s rest in this delightful story told in verse, with plenty of nods to the rich Star Wars narrative.

Goodnight Darth Vader will delight Star Wars fans young and old, and, once again, remind parents that the experience of parenting is universal, even in a galaxy far, far away…

Release date listed on Amazon is July 22, 2014
