The ToonSeum is proud to present VADER AND FRIENDS: A Presentation and Book signing with best-selling author and award-winning cartoonist Jeffrey Brown on Saturday, December 5, 2015 from 1:00 to 3:30 PM.
This beloved series of books asks the question “What if Darth Vader actively raised his son and daughter?” What if “I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown’s delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars™ moments a fresh twist, showing that the trials and joys of parenting are universal, even in a galaxy far, far away.
Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the pitching and creation of one of the best-selling STAR WARS book series.
The cost for this event is $25 per person. This fee includes your admission to Jeffrey’s presentation and a copy of Darth Vader and Friends (a $14.95 value) which can be signed by the author. Tickets available at the link…
Each Single Ticket purchase = 1 admission and 1 copy of Darth Vader and Friends
Each Family Four Pack purchase = 4 admissions and 2 copies of Darth Vader and Friends
Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to time constraints the author will only sign books or prints purchased as part of this event.
