Just revealed at the Image Comics Presents panel was the news that writer Kurtis Wiebe has secured a deal with QT Productions, which could potentially lead his series Peter Panzerfaust to television. Set during the Second World War, the comic deals with the eponymous Peter, an American boy stuck in Europe during the conflict. Trapped with no sign of help, he attempts to raise an army out of the French to fight back. Baguettes at dawn!
The deal seems to be initially only for a motion comic produced in association with the BBC. However – if the motion comic is successful – the comic could then be adapted by the BBC for pilot. The book is still a long way away from getting turned into a series, yet! But this could be very promising indeed.
