"Brilliant series. It's amazing that it's not been published in English already. Loisel is a genuine master of the medium" -- Bryan Talbot, 2013 Costa Award winner
About the Author
Régis Loisel is widely acknowledged as the first French author to have worked in the fantasy genre in recent decades, his style having become the standard for other European authors working in the genre. He is known best for his work on the best-selling series The Quest of the Time-Bird (La Quete de l’Oiseau du Temps) and his second series Peter Pan. Loisel has also worked with Disney on various animated films such as Mulan and Atlantis.

Though I have all five French albums, as well as an oversize black and white collection with additional material, I was pleased to see the five albums translated into English and collected in this one book published by Soaring Penguin Ltd (June 13, 2013). I didn't hesitate to order my copy and read the entire story in English.
Be warned: While the cartoon art and bright color, depictions of Neverland island, and the pirate ship are closer to the Disney movie version than the illustrations of F.D. Bedford, Arthur Rackham, Mabel Lucy Attwell or Trina Schart Hyman, (I consider Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie's sexually explicit graphic novel Lost Girls as exploitive trash and unworthy of serious discussion), the narrative by Loisel is dark dark dark. Peter is preyed on by perverts, abused by his alcoholic mother, so his hatred of all things adult is understandable but fanatical. There is plenty of bloody death caused by Peter, Jack the Ripper, Captain Hook, the crocodile and (spoiler alert) Tinker Bell!
Anyway, why the backstory? Well, because this graphic novel by artist Regis Loisel leans more toward the grim and dark origins of Peter. He is really just a fallible, regular kid living in a dark and dire time under terrible circumstances and just trying to make it through, letting his imagination be his guide.
This book is a damn near masterpiece. Beautiful artwork and great writing that really fleshes out the characters and expounds on the story. BUT, it is NOT Walt’s Peter Pan. There are adult themes, language, nudity and violence – very real stuff while in the real world and then the escapism stuff, but nonetheless not for kids!
nevertheless another quality of paper for this edition's pages would have been better .... a bit thicker and mate paper could may sued more this book
