Peter Panzerfaust #11 Review

After eleven engaging issues has this series started to lose the inherent quality that has carried its rather out there concept this far?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Image:

Having faced the wrath of The Hook, Peter and the Lost Boys join forces with the Braves in guerilla warfare from their secret hideout in the Sticks. This time, Felix is the man with the memories, and as Mr. Parsons soon learns, he’s not eager to revisit that life.


What we have in our hands is something that does enough to keep the story moving, even if it fails to offer anything revolutionary in its pages.  Truth be told at this point there doesn’t need to be as this creative team once again proves there’s still plenty of narrative to draw out of this proverbial lake of ideas.

Kurtis J. Wiebe pens the script and once again the author knows exactly how to place the pieces as he builds-up expectations toward Hook’s imminent return.  The dialogue from start to finish has moments of grace and cringe inducing spasms that strangely enough even out to create a strong and well put together romp that puts Peter and his Lost Boys in some interesting situations,  Something that’s always struck me about this series is the scribe’s ability to transcend skirmishes about repelling Nazis while combining them with fantastical elements that yield sturdy character development that’s second to none.

The art by Tyler Jenkins is stylized and outstanding in all the right ways.  There are some comic books that when one picks them up and gazes upon the visualizations therein you might find yourself wondering how another person might approach or improve these given scenarios with their own sensibilities.  I never found that happening to me as I marveled at every line and curve as yet another sterling entry allowed me to view this talent’s depth and skill.

Peter Panzerfaust #11 is a good release that proves its worth even as we reach yet another cliffhanger.  Recommended.
