Default Peter Panzerfaust

WOW!
Peter Panzerfaust 1 CGC 9 8 Very RARE HFT Very Popular NM | eBay

I was able to pick up a CGC 9.8 for $140 about a month back! Extremely small print run (4814)!

Anyone following the series? I picked up the TPB and it's a good read and a new twist on Peter Pan!

I think Im jumping on board now. Not because i have read the series but because of the potential. I think 1-8 had like 5k print run. Still no confirmation of a tv show. In fact one of the creatores had this to say. Seems like its still struggling but if it does blow up, I want to be in the middle of it.

I have to say, I don't fully understand what's going on with circulation and threatening the cancellation of the book. Kurtis' comments make it sound like at 7000 circulation it's profitable and at 5000 it veers into labor of love territory and logically at 2000 copies or 1200 it could be costing them money.

I'm no expert, but from my reading of Dave Sim editorials in the 90s plus just generally being around comics and publishing, the way I understand it is that the trade sales are the key. Sim said that by issue 130 or so of Cerebus, the monthly wasn't selling enough to make it worth going forward...except for the trades (which he more or less pioneered). He said there wasn't one month since 1977 that he hadn't made money on Cerebus 1.

Add in some BBC money for Kurtis (not sure his agreement with the artist on stuff like that) and the artist being able to sell original art, and it seems like a more or less viable concern. Now maybe they are pulling out all kinds of behind the scenes stops to keep this going, but I would hope that with the first trade printed and money coming in from that, selling art, etc. they are going to be able to make it to at least the 25 issues and have a great finished story that they can make money on (mostly via trades) for years.
You have to keep in mind a few things about the income of the book.

1) BBC TV show isn't official and we don't make anything unless it is. That could be years from now and we have to live off something in the meantime.

2) At the current sales, I receive a cheque of $1500 per issue, sometimes a little bit more, sometimes a bit less. That amount is reduced by the page rate we pay our colourist and a percentage goes to our letterer. I won't go into the details, but at the end of both of those dediuctions, Tyler and I split the remainder.

3) We do make money from TPB's, but we aren't paid until six months after it's released, meaning we're doing the following five issues for very little money. See, this is what happened to Green Wake, my last series that I had to stop because Riley Rossmo wasn't making a dime. We didn't get the Volume 1 money until after we decided to end the series because we simply couldn't afford to go through the monthly singles to reach the collections.

I'm not trying to stretch the truth when I say we are doing this as a passion project. We really are. Yes, potential money could be coming down the pipeline, but since the first issue came out, Tyler has been making, essentially, $20/page. It takes him 3 weeks of every month to complete an issue and he has to live off something. He has a wife and two kids.

So, that's where Peter Panzerfaust is at right now. I'm very much hoping that all the recent publicity drives the sales up, but nothing's ever certain. Regardless, we will finish this series because it's something we HAVE to do.

And to answer the questions on print runs. I believe each issue sells around 4700 copies, so I'd imagine a print run of 5000 or so.

I am soooo glad I threw down on this book when I did. Story is great, print run is low and demand is ridiculous. If that show ever gets put on TV, it will only get better.

Right on! Yeah, I'm late to the party, only have 2nd prints of issue 1. And will most likely watch from the sidelines as these prices are interesting to say the least.

I'm kicking myself for not picking up Krightons PP#1 CGC SS with sketch before for only $115 shipped. It was the only SS at the time. I saw it on ebay sell for $55 to him so I didn't budge on the $115 price he offered me . This was back in July.

For those keeping track the first preview of Peter Panzerfaust was in Morning Glories #14. Same preview as Green Wake #7 but MG14 hit stores 2 weeks prior to GW7.

I cleaned out the cheapies on Amazon

MG14 camem out November 16, 2011. Green Wake #7 was November 30th 2011. Mondo #1 was February 2012.

I think this article makes it pretty clear it is the 1st true appearance.

Just heard from Kurits Wiebe on cgc boards...he considers issue #8 the 1st Captain Hook appearance since that is the one where his hand is the hook!

He also said #9 was severely under ordered (because the spike didn't happen until after orders were placed for #9)...in other words...PICK UP ISSUE #9. He also went on to explain that they go into Captain Hook in issue #9!

Sounds like Issue #9 will be RED HOT! Releases on Feb. 13th! I know I'll be picking up all I can of this issue...just the cover looks awesome!

If anyone is interested. I am thinking of moving a set of 2-8 all first prints.
If interested a can get a photo. Looking for $170 shipped and I will include a #2b.
So set includes 1st print 2-8 and a 2B. Only condition issue is 5 which I would call VF. The rest are NM+

I would prefer to move these here for obvious reason...

Dang, I ordered 6 at a site for cover. Hopefully they come through.

I called a couple of LCSs and all of them were sold out of all issues of PP, there was this one store that had #6 for $9, #7 for $10 and #8 for $50. Crazy!
