It's been a big week for Little Nemo. Following the announcement that IDW would be publishing new stories of Winsor McCay's classic creation, Locust Moon Comics, a retailer/publisher, has revealed plans for a Little Nemo anthology. Titled Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, the title will feature contributions from an extremely impressive list of creators, including Bill Sienkiewicz, Becky Cloonan, Neal Adams, Paul Pope, Brandon Graham, Roger Langridge, Peter Bagge, Farel Dalrymple, J.G. Jones, Chrissie Zullo, Mark Buckingham, Jim Rugg, David Petersen, and many more. Locust Moon has released a few early pages from the project, which you can check out after the cut.
Written and lavishly illustrated by David Petersen, Mouse Guard follows the adventures of an elite association of mice sworn to protect a kind of medieval mouse kingdom from threats both foreign (like weasels, snakes, and other predators) and domestic (like traitors!). The story is as harrowing as it is charming, among the most consistently executed, high quality American series published today, and has earned numerous awards and nominations in comics and the book trade.
After years of waiting, those of us who digest Mouse Guard in its luxurious hardcover form will finally have the answer to a mystery that's lingered since the first volume went on sale in 2008: the origin of the Black Axe.
On sale next week from Archaia is Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #1 (V2), beginning an all-new anthology series that invites some of comics' most talented creators to tell stories set throughout the endlessly charming, frequently funny and always harrowing mediaval world of mice created by David Petersen. This first issue contains framing sequences by Petersen himself that introduce the mechanism by which new stories by Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Ben Caldwell (Wednesday Comics' "Wonder Woman") and Nick Tapalansky and Alex-Eckman Lawn (Awakening) will unfold: a storytelling contesthosted in old Madame June's mouse tavern. The prize for the best tale? A zeroed out bar tab.
