The Goatpeter has left his mountain resort and lives today as Peter Goat in a suburban community. Like its “ancestor”, he has a clear view of the world and his beliefs are enshrined in the Swiss tradition. The reality today, however, brings him into trouble every now and then.
The association «Metropolis Switzerland» wants to boost the responsibility of each and every individual for the development of our environment. With the Peter Goat comics we want to keep the topic in the awareness of the Swiss people.
A first serie has already been published. However, the city hiker Loderer Benedict and the illustrator Noyau have many more ideas that they wish to realise in a second serie.
