Peter and Company
"What if, to a child, what appeared to be an imaginary friend, was in fact his guardian angel?"
Such is the concept behind Peter and Company, a comic by Jonathan Ponikvar. Peter, a 12-year-old cat, is having trouble surviving childhood when suddenly a new friend appears literally out of thin air: Seth, a white-suited duck. Peter thinks that he is the only one who can see Seth, but quickly discovers that he is not the only one in his neighborhood who has a "special friend."
In the Peter and Company universe, Seth and those like him are called Guardians, and have existed for centuries acting as guides for children in need... but just who are they, and where do they come from?
The printed volume is a collection of strips and pages from the online comic strip by Jon Ponikvar. The book includes 75 strips in their original grayscale tones, 25 comic pages in full color, and a book-exclusive color comic detailing the events leading up to the online comic.
Peter and Company is a family-safe comic and is appropriate for all audiences.
