“But Sven, we will get sued!”

Published 1980

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.63 out of 10)

    “Goddammit, I’ve been recognised!”

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Drab-Os, the least exciting dried breakfast cereal in the galaxy.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Oh, ja, long time ago now, and not anywhere near here, neither.

  4. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Donning an enormous disco medallion, it became evident that Vader was facing a midichlorian-life crisis.

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    Obviously they can’t sue anybody in Sweden. They are a neutral country. (I learned that in law school before I flunked out.)

    But they can sue Good Show Sir and Tom Noir. Disney is now readying a clone army of lawyers.

  6. Tag Wizard Says:

    The publisher is “Regal.” You’re making me use my Swedish Gøøgling skillz on that one.

  7. Noel Says:

    The fyord is strong in this one…

    ‘No, I am your father. Believe me, where else do you think you got those eyes.’

  9. Tom Noir Says:

    Episode VIII is taking Kylo Ren in some unexpected new directions.

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    @Tag Wizard: Mycket gott skick!

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ja! The Swedish versiøn øf “Star Wars”, featuring the evil galactic villain Dørth Væderson.

    “Løke, [*PUFF*… *WHEEZE*] I am yøur father. But øf cøurse we can talk this øver.”
    “Yes, nø need tø fight øver this. Let’s discuss it øver søme cøffee and meatballs.”

  12. Anna T. Says:

    I had no idea that Vader decided to give the “cartoon googly eyes” look a try. Although I suspect the gilding was added by a subordinate as a prank. ADMIRAL . . .

    Yeah, someone’s getting Force-choked for that little prank.

  13. Ray P Says:

    Real Swedish version: I am your varter. We have sex now ja?

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    Bender goes over to the Dark Side

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    There’s a door in my nose
    Where all the money goes

  16. Ray P Says:

    Mickey Rooney from Breakfast at Tiffanys with coke-bottle specs is Dark Helmet.

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I hope that the book is as entertaining as the Parliamentary debates!

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Mystery solved – ’twas Vader stole the Wookiee’s medal!

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    Is that a Life Day orange robe?

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Luke, I am NOT your father. I’m his cousin Dork Vader.”

  21. anon Says:

    @A.R.Yngve: “Luke, I’m your father’s mannequin.”

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Vader, you are not my father.’


    ‘I searched my feelings, and…no. No, you’re not. Not even close.’


    ‘Can I go now? It’s so awfully cold out here.’

  23. Perry Armstrong Says:

    And of course Dork Vader doesn’t have a Death Star. This is more his style of superweapon:

  24. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Before Darth Vader had his eyes fixed, he just couldn’t instill fear in his subordinates. And the medal he found in his breakfast-cereal box didn’t help much.

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Drabos, home of the Drab People. Sworn enemies of the Fab People of Fabos.

  26. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @A.R.Yngve(25): That sounds disturbingly like an unmade Dr Who script from the 80s…

    “Come on Peri, their doomsday weapon’s held over there in Section 28!”

  27. Tat Wood Says:

    @Perry Anderson: there would be the dreaded couples-in-jumpsuits if that were the case. ‘Drabos’ is more like one of those unerringly-descriptive Terry Nation planet-names, like Mechanus, Marinus, Aridius, Desperus…

  28. A.R.Yngve Says:

    …and the dreaded Planet Lawyerus, hell-pit of the galaxy.

  29. Francis Boyle Says:

    “Come of it C-3PO you wouldn’t fool a blind Womp rat with that cheap dime store Vader mask.”

    “But Master Luke, Yoda says it make me look so virile.”

  30. S.N.M Says:

    Disgusting looking amateur cover.

    I saw that book in a library once. I’d be damned if the author managed to even sell 50 copies of that book with a cover like that. MY GOD!!

  31. A.R.Yngve Says:

    This is the “Before” picture in an advertising campaign.
    “BEFORE I joined the Empire, they laughed behind my back… NOW no one is laughing!”

  32. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Not that the cover art for Möller’s other literary endeavours was better
