The Terror Of Peter Pan

Cody Walker writes,

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.

And so, on Monday December 8, we will launch . . .
