The Lost is a black and white comic book mini-series that continues the original story of Peter Pan in the present day, as a darkly humorous modern horror story. It was scripted by Marc Andreyko, from a story by him, Jay Geldhof, Galen Showman, and Mark Ricketts. It was illustrated by Showman, Geldhof, and Ricketts, with covers by Geldhof.
In this story, Peter meets a new girl named Wendy in a train station, and entices her to come away with him. His eternal youth comes from being a vampire, and so are the Lost Boys, including Michael Darling. Far from innocent – Peter has an active, kinky sex life – they use their apparent youth as a lure for men interested in sex with boys their age, whom they then feed on. Peter poses as a underage hustler.
The first two issues were mainly penciled by Showman and inked by Geldhof, with Ricketts drawing a flashback scene in each. They were published by Caliber Comics. The creators then took the series to Chaos! Comics, where it launched a new imprint called "Breakthrough Entertainment", intended for more mature, literary material than Chaos' main line of adolescent-focused comics. Chaos reprinted the first two issues with new covers, and a third issue drawn by just Ricketts and Geldhof, with assistance from Showman and P. Craig Russell. Unhapy with the "patchwork" art of the third issue, Geldhof began illustrating the fourth by himself, but became frustrated by the project, and finished only a handful of pages and the cover art.
