Peter Panzerfaust #15 Review

Another arc wraps up, but is the journey caught between reality and a fairy tale still worth your attention?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Image:


Communications have broken down. The group is divided and now it’s time to run, to hide! Hook’s Hunters have taken the Sticks and despite the impeccable timing of the Croc, there is only one thing that can be done: fight to live another day!  The third thrilling story arc ends here!

I could bury the lead and say that this was an entertaining comic, but why stop there?  To be truthful what this issue represents is one of the strongest entries so far for this property.  And for a creative team that’s been able to take so many divergent elements and blend them together to make a stronger whole, it’s simply astounding.

Kurtis J. Wiebe pens the script and the scribe once again dazzles me.  He controls the text flow in a way that welcomes transitional elements which lead protagonists and antagonists to answers and progression that place this series on another level.  It’s an astonishing feat that easily catches my eye, especially when the author employs a fantastically unexplained rescuer in a sea of violence and chaos.  This story is still taking place during the second World War and because of that we’re getting to see a level of human authenticity that, in my opinion, is second to none.

The art by Tyler Jenkins impressed me as soon as I turned the page.  Their is no one else who could be handling this property, because any other talent might make the mistake of employing a visual realism that would defeat the purpose of this portion of the journey.  Instead we’re given the skilled hands that see it still as an interpretation of Peter Pan, sure there are moments where that may seem somewhat out of place but trust me it’s the right way to deliver on the promise of the narrative.

Peter Panzerfaust #15 is a superb release, that”s not perfect but it’s close.  Highly recommended.
