While I didn't find Brown's long-form comics as hilarious as his one-shots, this book was still a pleasant read. It is sure to appeal to a younger audience than the Luke & Leia Vader books, as it falls squarely in the diary format and has a young protagonist who is easily relateable to. ( )

This is so cute. Love the Jedi Academy setting. ( )

Jedi Academy is a story set in the Star Wars universe about 200 years before the movies, and features Roan Novachez, a farmboy from Tatooine selected to attend the Jedi Academy on Coruscant. Drawing on elements of Hogwarts and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this richly-illustrated early reader book follows Roan through his misadventures and struggles to fit in with more advanced users of the Force. I think I was a kid I would've been annoyed by the many references to schools in our universe, but as an adult I'm less attached to pure canon to let that interfere with my enjoyment of some silly gags. This is a good book, and the start of a series, for the young Star Wars fan in your life. ( )
