Peter Panzerfaust is returning to print through Image Comics this November. Kurtis Wiebe is returning on writing duties and his partner Tyler Jenkins will once again pencil the series.
Peter Panzerfaust began in February of 2012 and ran through twenty three issues which were then collected in four trade paperbacks and one deluxe hardcover book.
