Peter Panzerfaust #1

by stephengervais on February 20, 2012

Feeling somewhat adventurous this week I decided to try out this latest offering from Image Comics. It’s been promoted as Peter Pan meets World War 2. I figure it sounded like an interesting concept so I gave it a shot. It’s written by Kurtis Wiebe and the art is handled by Tyler Jenkins.

The story opens in the present day with an elderly man being interviewed about his first encounter with Peter. The story moves along pretty quickly with Peter meeting and helping a group of orphaned boys escape the Nazis.

The writing is fast paced and before you know it the issue is over. In fact it seems over 1 or 2 pages to soon. When I finished reading the issue I actually thought I was missing a page or two. I know the writer wanted to end on a cliffhanger but it really seemed like an unnatural ending point.

Overall I enjoyed this issue. I found the artwork captured the essence of Pan Mythology and the story itself entertaining. Even though I was not a fan of the ending I have to pick up the next issue to see what happens.
