Peter Pan is terrifying to me. Sure, as a kid, I wanted to be Peter Pan or at least travel to Neverland and battle pirates. But now, I'm frightened at the idea of a 10 year old boy with the powers of a god who treats adults like they are his personal playthings. Maybe that's the surest sign that I've grown up.
Now, with all the new interest in Peter Pan lately, it started to get me thinking about his world and how it would look from a different angle; "through a glass darkly," as it were.
Everland is a 32-page one-shot comic made up of four 8-page stories by four different artists. Each story will focus on a different important part of this fantasy world and connect to the next story. The stories include:
– Chapter 1 – "Surviving Everland" with art by Chris Yarbrough – a fairy steals a little boy out of his bed and he must survive in the jungle.
– Chapter 3 – "Mermaid Love" with art by Ryan Wheaton – a shipwrecked pirate finds unlikely love with a squid-like mermaid.
– Chapter 4 – "Monster Slayer" with art by Nathan Judah – an Iroquois girl hunts a giant crab to get revenge for her dead father.
