Known for Darth Vader and Son and the Jedi Academy series as well as Clumsy, Funny Misshapen Body, & A Matter of Life, Jeffrey Brown has been a prolific cartoonist and author. We discuss why the Village of Deerfield is in every one of his books, some of the themes of his adult graphic memoirs, how his Star Wars books came about, why it's difficult to make jokes about R2-D2 and C-3PO, and how he gets all the science into his Lucy & Andy Neanderthal series. 

His website is jeffreybrowncomics.com or check out his books through the library. You can also find My Favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris at the library, which Jeff recommends.
