Tiger Lily's revenge – very much her story
Peter Panzerfaust Volume 5: On 'Til Morn... Peter Panzerfaust Volume 5: On 'Til Morning - Kurtis J. Wiebe

In this fourth volume of a comic collection which runs to at least 5 volumes, we meet Peter Panzerfaust as he helps the group against the Hunters and Tiger Lily takes her revenge. Taking place in 1940, the group continue to fight the Nazi occupiers in France. The story told in sepia tones is engaging and nicely-illustrated . I've got one more volume to work through and it should be worth the journey. Recommended for its novel perspective, continued action and developing characters.

The “crocodile” enters into the story – betrayal and more wartime activity
Peter Panzerfaust, Vol. 3: Cry of the Wolf - Tyler Jenkins,Kurtis J. Wiebe

 

 

In this third volume of a comic collection which runs to at least 5 volumes, we meet Peter Panzerfaust as his group of Lost Boys and the Darlings are betrayed by one of their group.

 

The story told in sepia tones is engaging and nicely-illustrated as warfare continues as the Germans advance through France. I've got the next two volumes to work through and it should be worth the journey. Recommended for its novel perspective, continued action and developing characters.

Well-produced Peter Pan-meets-World War II story
Peter Panzerfaust, Vol. 1: The Great Escape - Tyler Jenkins,Kurtis J. Wiebe

 

 

In this first volume of a comic collection which runs to at least 5 volumes, we meet Peter Panzerfaust as he rescues the Lost Boys and the Darling children, all as the Nazis invade Northern France in 1940.

 

The story told in sepia tones is engaging and nicely-illustrated as Peter and the boys fight their way out of Calais to head for Paris. I've got the next four volumes to work through and it should be worth the journey. Recommended for its novel perspective.

[Book Review] Rat Queens Volume 4 : High Fantasies
Rat Queens Volume 4: High Fantasies - Kurtis J. Wiebe

Previously Reviewed:

 
This is undoubtedly the Rat Queens I've come to love, but there's a lot missing and I don't know where it went.  It's not just the missing story between the end of Volume 3 and the beginning of Volume 4 that's jarring and confusing, no matter how happy I am to see Hannah back in the heart of things.  Even with an overarching plotline, Volume 4 reads like a series of vignettes rather than  cohesive story.  There are pieces missing, and some of those pieces belong to the very heart of the story.
 
Don't get me wrong, I laughed at walking in on Hannah's dad with the ghost of her mom, the adventure that boiled down to a dick joke by a bored magical frog/pufferfish/thing, and I love pretty much everything Braga.  But I know these unruly, riotous women can do more than make me laugh.  I know they can make me feel... and that wasn't here.
 

I'm hoping it's just a symptom of shake-up, with a dalliance with web comic form that perhaps was awkwardly handled, or just adjustments and growing pains of a re-launch.  It's a fun read, but doesn't stand as strong as the first volumes.
