'Darth Vader and Son': What If 'Star Wars' Villain Was Good Dad?
What if Darth Vader had been around for Luke Skywalker’s childhood — not as a distant threat, but as a loving and devoted father?

The book reimagines the Dark Lord of the Sith parenting an adorable 4-year-old, his days filled with potty breaks, Lego, bicycle riding and bedtime stories. Brown, the author of “Clumsy” and “Bighead,” chatted with Hero Complex about the book, “Star Wars” and fatherhood.
