Behord The Brack Sun by Gorrem Behord The Brack Sun by Gorrem
Now, if this doesn't violate some sort of copyright infringement or piss someone off with how politically incorrect it is, then I am going to be very angry.

For digital imaging we had to make a digital image around the theme of fascism. I'm not a very politically involved person, so I chose the only politics I was familiar with- that of the GALACTIC EMPIRE. Actually, I'm kidding... I'm not a hardcore Star Wars fan, but I think he's one of the most recognizable characters of evil in fiction next to say, Hannibal, and he is a bit of a fascist, so I decided to do a series of images which combined propaganda/hype images with Darth Vader as the figurehead.

This one is based off of a Communist propoganda poster from the 60's which was originally celebrating Mao. The original said "Behold the red sun that will lead us to glory," and I wanted to rewrite it to say "behold the black sun that will lead us to glory" because I thought that was a good reference to vader/death star, etc. However, I don't know chinese even though i am half, so i rewrote it in engrish. Hehe. Anyone get my potshot at ST?

Oh man, I'm going to get shot.

If only evil would dress up in suits like that and openly declare their goals.

It's all propaganda.…

It is politically incorrect, but it's hard to feel sorry for the war-mongering bastards. (I'm not a fan of the British Empire either, before anyone starts. And I'm not talking about modern-day Japan either.) Surely a straight swap of emperor for emperor? Darth Vader is more the Admiral Yamamoto of the galaxy far far away. (I know, I know, mind your own effing business Frogstopper...)

I had to reread it a few times before I got it. Is it bad that I laughed a little?

I don't think it works, Darth Vader has better correlation with Nazi movement if anything.

It's a fine illustration though, great to think about

Spotted it: Vader's doing a Vulcan Salute.
