A new hope is found in space reporter Matthew Nash’s first born, Reed.
He and his wife, Stephanie, an academics teacher of Jedi younglings, await their son’s birth on the planet of three suns — Sequim.
Imperial forces led by the evil Darth Econon-mee make their way to their homeworld to pull them apart.
To spread the Rebellion’s message and fight the Sith resurgence, Nash must recommend a new book …
George Lucas’ marketing department definitely got a hold of me as a child.
Toys, a C-3PO toy case, bed sheets, lunch boxes, playsets, T-shirts, and I’m sure more, all graced my bedroom growing up.
Like most males my age, I love Star Wars. I was too young to see the original three films in theaters until their special edition releases in the 1990s.
I rewatched “Return of the Jedi” countless times growing up while playing with the Ewok village. I even was captured in the excitement of the new trilogy, Episodes 1-III.
As a side note, I have a hard time deciding between “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back” as my favorite — I added that to keep some sort of reputation.
When Reed is older I hope to share the films with him (the original films first).
My love for Star Wars and level of geekiness is well-known.
I just got a great book, “Darth Vader and son” by Jeffrey Brown. This fun cartoon book features Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker as a boy experiencing many of the famous scenes from the film.
Each scenario is far from canon of the main storyline, but each page has a certain charm.
I’ve read several of Brown’s autobiographical books — “Unlikely,” “Clumsy,” “The Incredible Changebots” — and find them enjoyable.
His drawings in “Vader” are great for his style and I think even the casual fan can find enjoyment in them.
As a fan, I loved the “in” jokes of quotes and characters, but some could be left in the dark.
It’s a quick read, but I find it best to take my time and enjoy it because I’m sure many of the situations, albeit minus intergalactic war, will ring true between my son and me.
If you get a chance to flip through “Darth Vader and son,” I’d recommend it.
