    Mark Buckingham returns to this title for one last kick at the can, and it would appear that he's decided to bring a new look to the table, as the flashback material does an amazing job of capturing the innocence of Peter's childhood. The Calvin and Hobbes influence over these scenes is ever so apparent, as the young Peter does look like he could have stepped out Bill Watterson's universe, and the snow men creations would do Calvin proud. The art also does a lovely job on the more emotional moments, as the look of utter terror on Peter's face after he forgets his line was perfectly realized, and the backstage chaos was also perfectly presented. I also have to say the final page image is a fantastic goodbye to Paul Jenkins & Mark Buckingham's run on this title, as pretty much the entire cast of characters during their run puts in an appearance, as do the creators themselves. The cover image is also one of the best final issue covers I've ever come across. Read Full Review
