Well-produced Peter Pan-meets-World War II story

Peter Panzerfaust, Vol. 1: The Great Escape - Tyler Jenkins, Kurtis J. Wiebe

 

 

In this first volume of a comic collection which runs to at least 5 volumes, we meet Peter Panzerfaust as he rescues the Lost Boys and the Darling children, all as the Nazis invade Northern France in 1940.

 

The story told in sepia tones is engaging and nicely-illustrated as Peter and the boys fight their way out of Calais to head for Paris. I've got the next four volumes to work through and it should be worth the journey. Recommended for its novel perspective.
