PETER PANZERFAUST EXEMPLIFIES TRIUMPH OF THE UNDERDOG
Issue #10 of Peter Pan-WWII mashup gets second printing
The last few months have been a flurry for the Image Comics/Shadowline series PETER PANZERFAUST. The World War II adventure comic inspired by J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan has sold out of its last three issues, including the most recent, #10 — even though orders were more than double the initial orders of #9.
The second printing of PETER PANZERFAUST #10 will be in stores on April 17 and can be pre-ordered at comic book stores now (Diamond Comics code FEB138250). The first printing sold out the same week as its March 13 release. In addition to the all-new cover featuring art by series artist Tyler Jenkins, Image will also be producing a convention exclusive edition of the issue with a blank cover for sketches and autographs and a limited edition retailer exclusive edition as a token of thanks for the readers and retailers who have supported PETER PANZERFAUST.
Issue #10 closes out the “Paris” story arc for the series and will be collected in the series’ second trade paperback, which will be in stores on May 15.
Fueled by the announcement of the production of a motion comic adaptation by the BBC and coverage in USA Today and The Huffington Post, PETER PANZERFAUST has become the quintessential independent comics success story. A personal story for its creators writer Kurtis J. Wiebe and artist Jenkins, PETER PANZERFAUST offers an emotional depth in a high-concept package, capturing readers’ devotion to this comic book series outside of the superhero mainstream.
The series continues to garner excellent reviews as it moves toward its third story arc:
"In the horrors of war, the story of Peter Panzerfaust is an inspiring story of friendship, honour, courage and living life to its fullest."
-Comicosity (10/10 review)
"Peter Panzerfaust #10 is an exemplary outing that not only offers a fitting conclusion to this arc but adds in some more character development to boot."
-Unleash the Fanboy
"Peter Panzerfaust is simply a comic that is too excellent to ignore."
