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. The result is a rich and fantastical tale which entertains but is too uneven to truly entrance.

Synopsis

For the first time in English, collecting the entire 6-volume series that's sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide. 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 escape temporarily from 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, for UK audiences. Readers will love the chance to collect this amazing reinterpretation of the J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan story for an adult audience. Loisel offers a unique take on a well-known tale that goes into a grim and dark world; his artwork will transport readers to a different world.
