Amongst various accolades and awards, Mouse Guard has received an avalanche of positive reviews.

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.”

David Petersen – Mouse Guard Winter 1152

Saturday 07 November 13:00 – 14:00

Forbidden Planet, London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, UK, WC2H 8JR

DAVID PETERSEN signs the gorgeous Mouse Guard Winter 1152 at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 7th November 1 – 2pm

In the Winter of 1152, the Mouse Guard face a food and supply shortage threatening the lives of many a mouse through the cold and icy season.

Some of the Guard’s finest – Saxon, Kenzie, Lieam, and Sadie, led by Celanawe, the legendary Black Axe – traverse the snow-blanketed territories acting as diplomats to improve relations between the mouse cities and the Guard. They find themselves on a race against time to deliver crucial medicines. This is a winter not every Guard may survive…

David Petersen is the award-winning writer and artist of Mouse Guard. He enjoys fantasy, folklore, myth, and legend – and loves even to draw and write about them even more. Winter 1152 collects the second Mouse Guard series, complete with epilogue and bonus content.
