Peter Pan / Peter Pan graphic novel
« on: December 05, 2012, 03:02:09 PM »
There is a project underway to adapt Peter & Wendy and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens into a graphic novel.  The creator Renae De Liz is a talented artist with a good track record, so I am very much looking forward to it.  She is currently running a campaign on to raise the funds for it (as illustrating a graphic novel requires a full-time commitment to get done in a reasonable amount of time).
Bugs and Errors / spam

Does this forum software have a feature for reporting spam posts?  There's been a small rash of them lately, and it'd be nice to get them cleaned out.
Peter Pan / Peter Pan wiki
« on: April 08, 2010, 01:40:37 PM »
I want to let people here know that I've begun a wiki about Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie, and pretty much anything related.  It's based in part on information from Wikipedia, but goes into (or eventually will go into) topics that don't qualify as "notable" by their standards, such as articles for each actor who played one of the Lost Boys in the 1924 film, for every character who appears in The Little White Bird, for every play Barrie wrote, etc.  I welcome the involvement of others interested in developing an online informational resource about the boy who never grew up and the man who never grew tall.  You can find it at
Peter Pan / original version of the play
« on: February 17, 2010, 02:38:37 PM »
Has the original (or an early) version of the play ever been published?  The 1928 edition is fairly easy to come by, but that's the product of a quarter century of JMB "tinker"ing.  The introductory notes for John Caird and Trevor Nunn's version of the script mention scenes such as the "beautiful mothers", the wedding of Tootles and Wendy, Hook in Kensington, etc. which would be interesting to read. 

I wonder if GOSH has considered taking advantage of the copyright they undisputedly do still have in the US (the 1928 script) to publish a "Compleat Peter Pan", including not only JMB's final draft but the various "deleted scenes" and "alternate endings" he wrote (and toss in Kensington Gardens while they're at it).
Davies Family / Michael's friends
« on: April 23, 2007, 10:11:55 PM »
I am in the early research stages of writing a short graphic novel about Michael.  Thanks to this site and the book, I have plenty of photographic reference for him and the family, and the various settings (Kensington, Eton, Oxford) should be easy enough to find.  Do you know of any photos of Michael's friends (especially Buxton, but also Senhouse and Boothby [in his Eton/Oxford years]) or - lacking that - descriptions of them?  Telling a story such as this obviously will require a fair bit of invention, so any visuals that I can base on known facts, I'd like to do so.
