Media Release — For one day only, Eisner and Origins Award-winning writer/artist David Petersen will be appearing at Forbidden Planet comics shop in London, England, providing fans across the pond a chance to meet the creator behind the brave and noble band of sword-wielding mice whose adventures continue in Mouse Guard: Winter 1152. The book recently spent six weeks on The New York Times Bestseller List.
The one-hour signing will run from 1 to 2 p.m. on November 7th, 2009 at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, England. The Mouse Guard series is an all-ages publication that any reader would enjoy this holiday season.
“I’m thrilled to be signing in the UK for the first time!” exclaimed Petersen. “In the past. I have heard from vocal fans asking about a UK appearance, so I hope this can be the first of many.”
Amongst various accolades and awards, Mouse Guard has received an avalanche of positive reviews. Tom McLean of Variety said, “This is a fun book about warrior mice in a fantasy vein that reads like a mix of ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Stuart Little.’ Petersen’s art is wonderfully textured and the story is a good one, suitable for kids.”
Newsarama’s J. Caleb Mozzocco said Mouse Guard “is great stuff—an all-ages adventure with a little something for everyone” and Ed Sizemore of Comics Worth Reading raved, “Mouse Guard is perfect. There are no flaws in plot, character, design, color, narration or world building. This is a must-read for any fan of high fantasy. It’s also a must-read for lovers of great comics in general.”
The first two volumes of Mouse Guard and the Mouse Guard: Roleplaying Game are available as hardcovers. Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 is also available in a collector’s edition, oversized black and white hardcover, limited to 1,000 printings.
