Next month you will believe a ragtag group of French orphans can fly.

Well, not really fly. But they won’t shrink from danger either. In Kurtis Wiebe and Tyler Jenkins’ Peter Panzerfaust, Peter Pan and the Lost Boys are newly realized as resistance fighters in the ruinous landscape of WWII.

I reviewed the wonderfully imaginative debut earlier this month, but the crocodile clock is still ticking down to the book’s launch in February. Remember to tell your shop to order Peter Panzerfaust #1, because we don’t want this one to fly under the radar.

A really inventive concept executed handily. They’ve got the makings of a very exciting war story here.



The city of Calais is the first city in France to fall to the Germans in the spring of 1940. A mysterious American boy named Peter rallies a handful of plucky French orphans and they must work together to survive Europe’s darkest hour.

From the writer of the critically acclaimed GREEN WAKE and THE INTREPIDS comes a new ongoing series: PETER PANZERFAUST, a high energy action story that blends Red Dawn with Peter Pan.


To tide us over until February 15th, here’s a series of promo images from series artist Tyler Jenkins to whet our appetite and infuriate any hook-handed fascists waiting right around the corner.


  1. The art looks incredible and the story seems a clever enough twist to make me say…Peter Pan? Hell yeah!

  2. neat, will try the first issue.

  3. So psyched.

  4. This is a great concept, but it just seems so impossible that it hasn’t done before. You know it’s good since it seems so obvious. Really excited to pick up the first issue.

  5. Love that third promo pic. I can’t wait for this book and have it pre-ordered in my LCS.

  6. I’m just said that there won’t be a Greener Panzerwake…j/k. I got this pre-ordered and I will be missing Green Wake.

  7. Oh, Peter PANzerfaust! Maye others got it immediately, but not me. I feel the fool!

  8. My poor wallet…

    Also, anyone else notice the logo overlap at the bottom of that first image?

  9. Great concept with great art, I’m glad this is coming out, and it sounds like something that could just be successful.

    About that promotional art – Does Image offer graphic design services as part of their fee? These look really amateur and don’t do the art the justice it deserves. I’m glad the book itself has a sound letterer, but I’m worried that front and back-matter may leave a bad impression of the book if they are put together in the same way as these promos.
