It’s May the 1st, and you know what that means. Yes, that Free Comic Book Day is in three days. But that’s not what I – Okay, yes, that Iron Man 3 comes out at midnight tomorrow, but that’s not what I’m – YES. Yes, that Saturday is May the Fourth, as in May the Force be with you! It’s Star Wars Day!
And it’s also the day that Jeffrey Brown‘s Vader’s Little Princess, a 100% Leia themed sequel to his first book of Star Wars cartoons Vader and Son becomes available in book stores. But if you have a shipping address in the U.S. and a Twitter account, you’ve got a chance to get a copy of your very own courtesy The Mary Sue and Chronicle Books, starting right now through all of May the Fourth, Star Wars Day itself.
Having received our own review copy of the book of cartoons, we can tell you that it’s seriously cute. Brown covers a lot of age ranges with Leia, from the toddler inopportunely hugging her dad’s knees during attempting-to-intimidate-the-underlings times, the elementary schooler embarrassed to be dropped off at school in an AT-AT, a teen wrecking the
car X-wing in a Dagobah swamp with her twin brother, to, in my personal favorite page, a grown woman tearfully grilling her hapless but sympathetic dad with “‘I know.’ What does that even mean?!”
So you do you get your hands on the copy we have to give away? First, you’ll need a Twitter account. Second, you’ll want to follow The Mary Sue. You can do that on your own, or just click this button:
Then you’ll need to tweet this bolded message:
