Jennifer Kay posted this on brooklyneagle.com today: The Child Thief follows two illustrated horror novels by Brom, an artist whose gothic images have filled comics, films and role-playing video games such as World of Warcraft.
Brom drapes the Peter Pan story in utter darkness. An adolescent Peter trolls present-day Brooklyn for runaways, defends them from bullies and lures them to his magical island where he promises endless playtime. In reality, he’s trying to bolster his child army for an epic battle with the Flesh-Eaters, who threaten the island’s existence. One runaway, Nick, believes he’s the only recruit to catch on to Peter’s tricks.
