    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 9, 2013

    One area the book could still use some fine-tuning is the formulaic cliffhangers. Wiebe has a tendency to end each issue with the debut of another familiar Peter Pan character. When working with books like this that take a familiar franchise and morph it into something dramatically new, it's best not to rely overly much on those "Hey, look! It's this person you know, but they're different!" sorts of moments. And generally, the series has done a good job of that. Peter Panzerfaust isn't too beholden to the Peter Pan mythology, and it can easily be enjoyed absent any knowledge of it. But the cliffhangers alone continue to fall back on that approach. But sooner or later that will have to change, as Wiebe will eventually out of iconic Pan characters to induct into the book. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Jan 8, 2013

    It seems perverse to think that a series centering on Nazi-occupied Paris could be so enjoyable, but the way Wiebe and Jenkins have been laying it out, it's a thoughtful, dark, heartening and terrifying adventure, as well as a unique twist on a mythology that many of us have grown up with. This issue pushes the characters near the apex of danger, and while we're sure to see them tested further in future issues, there's an irresistible, ferocious, mischievous spirit at the heart of this series that drives the story buoyantly on. Peter and the Lost Boys are not giving up without a fight. Read Full Review

    While issue eight may not be the best jumping on point for new readers, take this review as a notice: we are a collected edition and a few issues into something really special and this issue only continued that trend. Jump into to one of the most consistent and fun comic books on the stands next month with issue nine. Read Full Review
