Earlier this year Hermes Press announced that we would be reprinting Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat...and the time is drawing closer! So we've opened up pre-orders- and we have some great options for you!
In case you aren't familiar...Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults. The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely are and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity. Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a sixteen page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread. The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets.

There are TWO versions of Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume One. The softcover, regular edition, and a limited hardcover; the hardcover is going to be printed "by order only," meaning that you can ONLY get it from ordering through us or through Diamond Comics. The limited edition has a printed laminated cover and fancy dust jacket- you'll only be able to get it for a limited time!
