DAVID PETERSEN, CREATOR OF â€˜MOUSE GUARD,’ TO APPEAR AT THE COMIC BUG IN MANHATTAN BEACH, CA ON SATURDAY, SEPT. 25th
Los Angeles, CA (September 20, 2010) – For one day only, Eisner and Origins Award-winning writer/artist David Petersen will be appearing at The Comic Bug, Manhattan Beach’s only comic book and pop culture store., providing South Bay comic book fans a chance to meet the creator behind the brave and noble band of sword-wielding mice.
The two-hour signing will run from 3 to 5 p.m. on September 25th, 2010 at The Comic Bug, located at 1807 Manhattan Beach Blvd. Manhattan Beach, CA 90266. The Mouse Guard series is an all-ages publication that any reader would enjoy.
“I’m really excited!” exclaimed Petersen. “I can’t wait to see all the West Coast Mouse Guard fans at The Comic Bug on the 25th!”
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 â€˜Lord of the Rings’ and â€˜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 are available as hardcovers. Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard is a brand new anthology series currently up to its third issue. All will be available at Saturday’s event.
