Want to meet 'Mouse Guard' creator, David Petersen?
The one disadvantage of living across the pond from the United States is that the opportunities to meet comic book creators are far less frequent, which is why when it was announced that ' Mouse Guard' creator David Petersen was scheduled to do a signing in London this week, I could not wait to share the good news! If you live in London, and want to get your copy of 'Mouse Guard' signed you should definitely head to Forbidden Planet Megastore on November 7th!
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.”
If you plan on attending the signing, be sure to let us know and take plenty of pictures! Petersen happens to be one of my personal favorite comic book creators, and this is a great opportunity for those of you who have not yet read 'Mouse Guard' to pick up your copy!
