    Title:When you are sleeping”, a graphic SW novel for kids, re-load due to changed canon by Disney


    Main beta- editor:

    Co-editor and muse:

    28 double pages (= one text page and another page with one acrylic painting matched to it), including the last page saying: THE END

    Leia tells her newly-born son, Ben, a good-night story that contains many beings from the SW universe and the numbers from 1 to 10.

    Time frame:
    The story takes place in 5 ABY, when Ben was just born on Chandrila.

    Place of choice:
    On-board the Millennium Falcon

    Reason for re-post on the Fan Fic Boards:

    Sticking to the German saying: “Aller guten Dinge sind drei.” (= All good things come in threes.), I also repost this self-made SW children book.

    In the original version, that I also gave Steve Sansweet for his Rancho Obi Wan ages ago during a SW convention in Germany (the Celebration Europe actually), Leia holds little baby Anakin in her arms. This happens right after the dreadful events of the 'Dark Empire'. She tells the boy a good-night story that contains many beings from the SW universe and the numbers from 1 to 10.

    Due to the new Disney canon for SW there is no Anakin Solo any more, just Ben Solo aka Kylo Ren. That was the first mega change here.

    I took out some special pens and intensified the outlines of the water colours, which gives them an even greater comic style look.

    Since the original scans were too blurry and the water colours are too big for my scanner, I took photos with my mobile phone.

    Here and there I also took liberty to change the text a wee bit.

    I posted the original on the 7th July at 2:24pm. And re-posted it on the 6th April 2014 at 8:57am as part of my omnibus thread for self-made SW graphic novels.

    This story was originally dedicated to @Earwen_Lightrider.

    Reader warning: Please excuse my weird English! I am German. English is only my Second language!

    SW is owned by George Lucas, Lucas Lt. & Walt Disney!!!
