‘Mouse Guard’ Invites Guest Creators To Play in its Sandbox This March [Preview]
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of David Petersen's beloved series Mouse Guard, a new collection of short stories set in the Mouse Guard world is about to debut. With stories from creators as varied as Mark Buckingham, Becky Cloonan, and Dustin Nguyen, the four part Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Vol. 3 begins in March.
One of the great things about series like Mouse Guard is that the way the world is built allows for a wide variety of storytelling that still feels authentic to the series' identity. This gives Petersen a chance to let other people into the world for a while --- which is an experiment that benefits both the overall world through world-building, and of course allows fans a chance to see new takes on something they already enjoy. There's something really fun about comics that have such detailed settings and characters, and clearly Petersen understands that --- he even has a guide to the world on the Mouse Guard site.
Read on to see four exclusive pages from Legends of the Guard Vol. 3 --- two from Petersen himself, and two from guest artist Mark Buckingham --- plus wraparound covers by Petersen, Ramon Perez, Humberto Ramos, and Eric Muller. The Muller cover will be unlocked as a one-in-ten bonus if advance orders hit 10,000, and today, February 17th, is the final order cut-off for the first issue.
