Book Description

13 Jun 2013
Before he became Peter Pan, before his arrival to Neverland, he was a boy fighting for survival. Born into the harsh Dickensian London suburbs, an alcoholic mother leaving him in an almost-orphan state, Peter's only retreat from reality was the fantastical stories given to him by a friendly neighbour - allowing him to temporarily escape the darkness of the adult world. For the first time this six-volume series will be translated into English and collected in one omnibus edition. Loisel offers a unique take on a well-known tale that goes into a grim and dark world.

Product Description

Review

'This Peter Pan is an exuberant, imaginative and often mean spirited narrative that scrutinizes humanity and finds it lacking... Loisel expertly drives the pace of the story so that his Peter Pan is never less than compelling.' - Times Literary Supplement

'Don't even think about skipping this one... This is a labour of love that truly deserves your attention.... Soaring Penguin have done a truly spectacular job collecting together and translating the full run of this Peter Pan prequel and it needs to go on your wishlist now....this is one of those rare books that gives you more and more each time you read it.' - Geek Syndicate

'The exuberant artwork is great fun, with neat shifts in tone between the shimmering beaches of the island and the gloom of London's alleyways... a rich and fantastical tale...' - The Guardian

'The exquisite repackaging of this extraordinary reinterpretation of the timeless childrens favourite is undoubtedly one of the most essential graphic novel collections of the year.' - Broken Frontier

'Loisel's Peter Pan knows exactly which questions need answering and squarely delivers.' - SciFi Now (August)

"Dark, discomforting and delightful... By taking the subtext out of the shadows and into the spotlight, Loisel's Peter Pan is infinitely more enjoyable." - Comics Beat

'Loisel s masterly Peter Pan (Soaring Penguin, £29.99) does for J.M. Barrie's fantasy what Wicked did for The Wizard of Oz by making us re-think the original and expanding what drives one Victorian urchin to make a wish for eternal youth and sanctuary his reality.' --Book of the Year for Paul Gravett

"Dark, discomforting and delightful... By taking the subtext out of the shadows and into the spotlight, Loisel's Peter Pan is infinitely more enjoyable." --Comics Beat

4.0 out of 5 stars Peter Pan deconstructed 18 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This Peter Pan comic is not for kids. Like Lost Girls and Peter Pank by Max this is an adult orientated examination of the famous children's character. Loisel has written a prequel to the book telling the story of Peter leaving London to become the boy who never grew up.

The book looks great with Disney-esque art but this is a dark tale of murder, neglect and a fear of adult sexuality. I'd be interested to hear the thoughts of others on this book. I probably like it more than Lost Girls or Pank but it isn't perfect. Some parts work well but some things are less functional.

Do not let young kids read this. Certainly not for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars The boy who never grows up swears!!! 4 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Dark and Adult. This an alternate take on the Peter Pan story. Bound in a nice friendly Hardback cover, within is a graphic novel of dark and adult themes but with terrific artwork and easy to follow storytelling. Many frames stand out with some being quite funny. An example of one is where a group of devil hounds are tearing at a chap's old chap.

It's an english version print from a French series from the 80's but looks fresh now in 2013.

If you like alternate takes on familiar stories this is a fine purchase and pretty good value for the money too.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Been waiting forever to get the last 4 issues of Peter. Now in one hardcover book. Beautiful. I paid all the extra just to get it to the United States. Haven't gotten around to reading it yet but I remember how well I enjoy the first 2 issues.
