Peter Panzerfaust; Kurtis J. Wiebe & Tyler Jenkins

The past couple of days I read the first two volumes of Image Comics' Peter Panzerfaust, written by Kurtis J. Wiebe and illustrated by Tyler Jenkins. This is a pretty great comic book on all fronts. All I'm going to say here is that if you're not already familiar with the premise of Peter Panzerfaust, basically it's Peter Pan in World War II (without the magic elements of the classic Peter Pan story though), with the central characters taking a proactive position against the Nazis. One of the things I like most about this comic is that it's narrated by some of the characters from the story in our present, recounting what they went through during WWII - usually I don't like this kind of story-telling, but here it works really well. Peter Panzerfaust is a totally enjoyable, fast paced story with a lot of heart, great characters, and great art.
