Captain Hook becomes a Nazi and Peter Pan is a freedom fighter in the series 'Peter Panzerfaust.'
Captain Hook as a Nazi and Peter Pan as a French freedom fighter?
That’s the storyline of the comic series “Peter Panzerfaust,” which released its eighth issue today. The series is written by Kurtis J. Wiebe and illustrated by Tyler Jenkins and is published by Image Comics. So far, the series has followed Peter and his Lost Boys, now fighting back against the Nazis, but in the newest issue, Peter’s nemesis, now known as Kapitan Haken, made his debut.
“Peter Pan is a story of legends, and I'm weaving that idea into this series,” Wiebe said in an interview with USA Today. “It ties Peter and Hook together in a way I'm very excited about, and it makes their rivalry even more perilous.”
Haken, known as “The Hook,” is a member of the SS whose job is to kill the French who are resisting, and Peter encounters Haken when he and his fellows try to rescue a freedom fighter who was captured.
“Now that the heroes of our story have embraced their fate as participants in the French Resistance, we can fully play with flesh-and-blood villains,” Wiebe told USA Today.
