Oh my Lord I’ve been harping about how much I wanted to read this book for the last week. Ever since the ifanboy Don’t Miss on this book I’ve been stoked for it and my expectations were VERY high. I went into my comic store and…..they hadn’t gotten a shipment of it. Heartbroken because of the book being one that i was excited for I just held on hope that it was on digital and since your reading a review of it, I must have gotten a copy. So after ordering a copy of issue 1 in print as well ana putting the book on my pull list I thought “Man I hope this is as good as I think it will be”. I’m happy to say that it delivered.

Yet thats not to say it was perfect so lets talk about this bad-boy. Peter Panzerfaust is a remaining of the Peter Pan Story and to keep from spoilers I’ll just say that its a interesting take. On the story side of things this feels like a set-up issue but a set-up issue with some great action. After a quick introduction the story starts with a Bang and we meet our hero Peter. The lost boys don’t get much characterization but nobody does. This book is meant to just set the story in motion and boy does it. I kept wanting more from these characters during the issue; but that is a good thing. The story has caught me and while the book isn’t a “Batman #5” in that it doens’t floor you with its exquisite storytelling power its a very strong issue and most importantly it sets up a story that I can’t wait to read more from.

On the art side of things I can only say that the book has a distinct style but isn’t so out there to be off-putting to any mainstream fans. I like weird art though which is why i’m a big fan of Sam Kieth. Yet art like that wouldn’t fit this book. Tyler Jenkis does a bang-up job giving the book some style but also making it feel like a war book and gives respect and realism to the setting. Also the design for Peter is perfect for the book and its tone.

In Short: i was more than satisfied with issue #1 and I cannot wait to see where this book goes. The art fits the book like a glove and should also be given praise as well. Support creator owned books everyone ESPECIALLY when they are as promising as Peter Panzerfaust
