So I picked this up on a recommendation from my lovely friend Chelsea who had already read and very much enjoyed this series She told me that this was a sort of updated and modernised version of Peter Pan set in a war zone time period I naturally thought it sounded hugely intriguing and didn't need to know anything before I went ahead and bought Volume 1 to try it out It also helps that we have pretty similar tastes in Graphic Novels and so I knew that the artwork would be pretty tooSo this is exactly what I said above a Peter Pan 'remake' essentially but set during the World War We follow a group of Orphans who when a bomb goes off at their orphanage meet another young boy called Peter who leads them away from the scene and into yet trouble and adventure see the resemblance to the Lost Boys is already there Along the way we get to know the boys a bit and we see the story from the pov of one of them who has grown old and is recounting the story to a younger man I liked this style of recounting and felt that it worked well for the bookThe art style is indeed very nice with a lot of bold colours although neutral tones setting the scene for the action to happen As it is a war focused book there are a lot of big explosions and moments of destruction which leads to some wonderful panoramic 2 pg spreads my favourite in Vol 1 being the page of the docks at sunset with the ships aflameThe only slight uibble I had with the artwork was the faces particularly the eyes because occasionally I felt they didn't look uite as thought out as some other parts and sometimes one pupil was strangely bigger than the other but this is a very minor complaint and probably something that is only likely to bother me Other than that the art work was solid and pretty action packed and clear and you could tell who was who fairly easilyI loved the fact that there was a lot of french language snippets included in the storyline because it was set within France and I found that my very basic school lessons in French were enough to help me translate and understand it all I also imagined all the characters a lot easier due to the language change because it meant that I imagined them all with a French accent and could believe in it all a bit Overall a very solid beginning to what no doubt becomes a better story I am very much looking forward to picking up the next volume and I can't wait to see where the boys and the story will go next 4s

Peter Panzerfaust Vol 1 The Great Escape characters ☆ 0 Þ A coming of age tale told through the eyes of a group of French orphans during World War 2 who are saved by a brave and daring American boy named Peter As they travel together they get tangled up in the French Resistance in Paris fighting a growing German presence unOgether they get tangled up in the French Resistance in Paris fighting a growing German presence under the leadership of a fanatical SS officer hell bent on wiping them. An interesting take on the Peter Pan story Wiebe moves the action to World War II France and extracts all the fantasy Honestly that sounded like less than fun to me Isn't the joy of Peter Pan in the fantasy What good is a Peter who can't fly and who doesn't make the acuaintance of mermaids But something convinced me to give it a shot Probably that cover with the Lost Boys joyriding in a jeepI'm glad that I did Personally I picked up uite a few references to the original though I don't doubt that somebody better versed in Peter Pan could find The references make sense in the new context and can be rather clever I'm very interested in seeing where Wiebe is going with Belle for example and the Darlings show up in a way that was uite surprising to me And the story holds up as than just a series of callbacks The boys have definite and distinct personalities which makes it easier to follow the large cast The framing narrative with an elderly Toodles telling his story as part of an interview allows for some perspective on what's going on and makes it clear that this adventure is just beginning But the writing could be a bit clumsy at times and the violence sometimes seemed cartoony than I think was intended Neither were enough to turn me off the series by any means but they were minor flaws I'm not sure yet if I'll finish off the series but I'll at least put in a few volumes
