Guaranteed?-Inc.com. 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 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 Vader's Little Princess is an imaginative book that you won't want to miss - Lansing State Journal 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 hilarious - Game Informer Magazine if anyone wants to buy me a Mother's Day gift. I'm just saying. This would be perfect. - Mommyish.com it really is a creative, funny book. Written in comic book style, the story has Darth Vader and his daughter interacting over father-daughter things: brushing the backs of your teeth and how to fly a TIE fighter. You know, normal family stuff.-Cupcakes and Cashmere Father's Day Gift Guide Pick Leading the Galactic Empire is cake compared to raising a teenage girl.

Check out the amusingly clever Vader's Little Princess -Parents Magazine 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 Holiday Gift Guide Pick- Ain't It Cool News Holiday Gift Guide Pick- Geeks of Doom 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 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 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 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 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 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 Jeffrey Brown's new book of Star Wars-inspired cartoons is a must-have for any fan. -USA Today's Pop Candy 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 One of the Great Illustrated Books of 2013-Chicago Tribune 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 This is a must-have book for any Star Wars fan - Nerdist This small collection of drawings will delight any Star Wars fan. -North Shore News We can tell you that it's seriously cute.-The Mary Sue 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 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 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.

She will travel to Jamaica, Brazil, Japan, India, Norway, and Hawaii to learn why their inhabitants are so much healthier than Americans, and what we can learn from them. And while these traditions may appear to have little in common, at their root is an essential truth: living well isn't a trend--or a competition--and it certainly isn't something you can buy"-- Book Synopsis True well-being isnt hard to find. You just have to know where to look. In this insightful, full-color tour of Jamaica, Norway, Hawai'i, Japan, India, and Brazil, wellness and travel journalist Annie Daly shares a diverse array of philosophies, lifestyles, and practices for better living. Fed up with the commercialization of the wellness industry after working in it for years, Annie embarked on an inspiring adventure through some of the world's happiest and healthiest cities and villages to find out what we can learn from them. Whether she's hiking along gorgeous fjords in Norway to see why Norwegians are so dedicated to getting outside, soothing her spirit with Hawaiian salt water cleanses, or learning about the importance Brazilians place on community, Annie combines on-the-ground reporting with heartful personal narrative to share the global lessons, philosophies, and customs that prove that wellness is not about the products--it's about the way you live your life. With candid photography, lesser-known history sidebars, and guidance on how to incorporate these often ancient and always timeless practices into your own lifestyle, this culturally-immersive read invites you to view the world through a different lens and decide what being well means to you.

It will inspire action-getting down to the beach; texting family more often-which is more than most books can take credit for." -Foreword Reviews"Annie Daly delivers a timely and much-needed reminder that healthy living today doesn't have to be so complicated. Her thoughtful and inspiring book will be helpful for anyone who wants to get healthier without all the gimmicks-and travel the world vicariously along the way. -Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow, New York Times bestselling author of The Blue Zones About the Author Annie Daly is a fourth-generation journalist based in New York City.

Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: How to Escape from Quicksand
Genre: Action + ThrillersFormat: PaperbackAuthor: Joshua Piven and David BorgenichtAge Range: AdultReviews from: Soldier of Fortune USA Today Nearly 180 pages of immediate-action drills for when everything goes to hell in a handbasket (SOF editors all keep a copy on their desk at all times). Succinct overviews and pity, practical courses of action from legion experts-in-their-fields, to fight Murphy at least to a draw. Aficionados in some fields might quibble over certain techniques, but for the amount of ground this compact volume covers in dealing with dozens and dozens of worst-case scenarios in common-sense fashion, it's well worth having. Odds are good you'll meet more than one of the situation during your life, and the time spent studying this volume may turn out to be some the best time you ever invest. If nothing else, it makes you think out your options beforehand, so you have a plan. Those with deep-seated fears about killer bees, quicksand, mountain lions and sharks will enjoy The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht, a handy little book for the extremely prepared that is climbing the best-seller list. This is a no-nonsense, no-fooling around guide with straightforward information. But fear not: The authors have enough perspective to acknowledge the campy appeal of an armchair guide for the anxious. "We thought it would be funny to people," Borgenicht says. They were, he says, "inspired by pop culture as much as by paranoia most of the scenarios we talk about were a TV or a movie scene." Sharks, the authors say, scared both of them to pieces in childhood. Blame it on Jaws.

In fact, buy two, because you're going to want to give a copy to somebody over the holidays, no question. -io9.com Darth Vader and Son is cute, and perfect for the little Star Wars fan in your life.

Wink Books and BoingBoing Darth Vader and Son is Brown at the top of his artistic game with beautiful full-color pages, many of which seem imbued with a sincerity that I would expect to find in his next autobiographical work, A Matter of Life. Darth Vader and Son is a book for fathers and sons and Star Wars fans and, well, pretty much anyone who enjoys happiness and smiles. -Comics Bulletin Darth Vader and Son [is] a sweet mashup of Star Wars and father and son bonding - Chicago Tribune Devoted Star Wars fans will love that Brown has taken Darth Vader's lines from the movies-'I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further'---and cleverly turned them on their heads, finding the humor in both parenting and movie fandom, especially when he pokes gentle fun at the newer movies. - ICv2.com Do you and your Dad have a Star Wars bond? Then you're definitely going to want to nab this sweet and funny comic about Anakin Luke Skywalker. -E! Online Fans of Star Wars will be entertained by this heartwarming and comical twist on the epic classic.

There's probably not wrong reason to gift this, but it would definitely make for a good Father's Day present if you really need an excuse to buy Darth Vader and Son.--CSI: Librarian This is a good one for a young geek or their proud papa. -Ain't It Cool News When the first Star Wars film conquered the world in 1977, no one could have possibly foreseen it going on to become such an ubiquitous part of our cultural heritage. Now even parenthood can be viewed through the filter of the Sith lord Darth Vader. Jeffrey Brown (Incredible Change-Bots) crashes headlong into George Lucas's galaxy far, far away with endearing, funny-and fully licensed-results. A series of full-page gag cartoons focusing on the 'what if?' of Darth Vader raising a four-year-old Luke Skywalker, the book twists father/son moments into scenarios within the Star Wars playground. For instance, the addition of a wailing little Luke turns the Bounty Hunter scene into, as one bounty hunter's thought balloon puts it, Awkward! Trick-or-treating, toy shopping, a day at the zoo, and more are rejiggered with a lighthearted, charming tone. However, the book also provides ample proof that adding a babysitting Darth Vader to any Star Wars situation makes it gently humorous. Brown's signature scratchy style is embellished with full color and stripped-down likenesses.- Publisher's Weekly You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate this tender little book. -The Guardian (UK) You won't find a more adorable Star Wars book this year than Darth Vader and Son.
