In case you’ve been hiding in a galaxy far, far away: today is Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you! To learn more about the evolution of a hashtag into a holiday, check out the official site, where you can also find crafts and recipes for your own celebration. My personal favorite are these adorable Princess Leia cupcakes, complete with Oreo buns.
Just in time to help celebrate, Chronicle Books has released another installment in the Darth Vader series.
In this funny and sweet new book in the bestselling Darth Vader™ series, Eisner Award–winning author Jeffrey Brown offers an intimate look at the friendships between best pals in the Star Wars universe, from Darth Vader and the Emperor to Leia and her Ewok pals, Han and Chewie, C-3PO and R2-D2, the bounty hunters, and other favorite characters. Jealousy, birthday parties, lightsaber battles, sharing, intergalactic rebellion and more all come into play as Brown’s charming illustrations and humor irresistibly combine the adventures of our friends in a galaxy far, far away with everyday events closer to home.
