If Darth Hadn’t Been An Absentee Father…



“Greedo pushed me!”

“Hmm, who pushed first?”

This is a page from “Darth Vader & Son,” a book written originally in English by Jeffrey Brown, but it’s especially funny to me in Japanese because kids are kids and parents are parents, the world over. You know?

Saw this at  the Village Vanguard store in Shimo-kitazawa. If you’d like to be amazed by the weird goods there the next time you’re in Tokyo, a map to all Village Vanguard locations in Tokyo is on my other website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
