Read my copy of Peter Panzerfaust
#1 today over lunch. I really liked it - I think this title shows a lot of promise as an ongoing story. The Band of Brothers-meets fairy tale mashup format works very well and I think it could be worked to evoke effective emotional impact. (I can see Kurtis trying to crush us emotionally in future issues
The artwork too drew me in (pun intended). Tyler Jenkins' artistic style is really unique and does for Peter Panzerfaust
what Riley Rossmo did for Green Wake
or what Jeff Lemire does on Sweet Tooth
. Peter Panzerfaust
has a unique visual style that sets it apart from most of the other stuff on the comic shop racks.
The only bump in the road for my reading experience was at the end, which seemed a little abrupt. [...MINOR SPOILERS...]
After the last page with Peter shouting "AHROOOOOO!!!" my brain was expecting more pages and there were none - it was kind of like having the plug pulled from my TV set. Maybe it's because I'm not an expert comic reader and I need a "TO BE CONTINUED" in the last panel, hahaha
But long story short, congrats and job well done to the Peter Panzerfaust
creative team - you're off to a great start!
