Hot on the heels of a successful inauguration last June, the Malta Postal Museum has launched anexciting time-traveling comic book based on the adventures of its mascot Peppi Pustier.
Peppi Pustier: Lost in Time is an eighties inspired time travelling adventure and tells the tale of a hardworking postman who is suddenly teleported to different time periods in order to deliver a number ofimportant letters. Reminiscent of the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure this craftily and subtlywritten tale, is set in Malta and highlights key events of our history in a colourful and innovative way.
"Children will surely be moved by our intrepid postman who despite huge odds manages to deliverletters to people the likes of Mikiel Anton Vassalli, wounded soldiers and Prisoners of war over a 400-year period. Our young visitors are enamored by the museum's collection and the stories they tell and this launch of our comic cements their knowledge and contributes to a better learning experience hereat the museum" commented Lara Bugeja, curator of the MPM.
The artist behind the comic is Fabio Agius, a staff member of the Malta Postal Museum, local comic artist and leading organizer of the Malta Comic Con.
