I'm Michel Martin and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News. Coming up, you know the line, Luke, I am your father, but what if Darth Vader was the purveyor of evil in the galaxy and trying to raise his four-year-old son at the same time? As we get ready for Father's Day next week, we'll take a look at this very funny graphic novel with that premise in just a few minutes.
Switching gears now, Father's Day is a little over a week away and we try to take the day to appreciate the dads in our lives, but if you think you had some tough times with your dad, you've got nothing on this famous film father and son.
(SOUNDBITE OF MOVIE, "STAR WARS: EPISODE V - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK")
JAMES EARL JONES: (as Darth Vader) Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father.
MARK HAMILL: (as Luke Skywalker) He told me enough. He told me you killed him.

All Things Considered host Audie Cornish talked with Lindelof about his new film, opening in theaters today, and the apprehension building among loyal Alien fans anxious to see how the origin film plays out.
