It’s been a couple months since the last release in this series, so is it still worth picking up? Read on to find out.

The official description from Image:

“THE HUNT,” Part One

Peter Panzerfaust 16_CWe’re taking a break from the normal stories featured in this volume, as we instead get an exclusive front row ticket to a revenge opus. In the midst of it all the creative team maintains their sterling level of quality without missing a beat. It truly has become more than a mere fairy tale, as this twisted road drags us all along for a thrilling ride.

The architect of this zany but heartfelt concept dazzles with this latest release. And to be honest, I’m impressed with Kurtis Wiebe, as he delivers his most unexpectedly impactful entry yet. Never have the lines between modern day and the past merged so closely, as our present day protagonist follows the bread crumbs of a vendetta that’s worth paying attention to. The biggest problem I had here was also the script’s greatest strength: the notable absence of Peter. Which allowed a transitional focus that should get everyone excited for what comes next.

Tyler Jenkins does a marvelous job bridging the fantastical with the real. The illustrator incorporates just enough of the known lore with real world conditions in order to cement what quickly becomes another captivating journey. We have a new arc here, and this illustrator is once again more than up for the challenge as his renditions fit the text from beginning to end.

Peter Panzerfaust #16 is not a jump-on point, but it is a section of the growing saga that’s ripe with reward. If you haven’t been following, it’s time to go pick up that Deluxe HC and catch up! Highly recommended.
