It’s time to venture back to June Alley Inn for, Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 3. From Archaia, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, comes a new collection of tales from a mix of some very talented creators including: Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon), Mark Buckingham (Fables), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Ramón K. Pérez (Hawkeye, Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand), Becky Cloonan (Gotham Academy), Hannah Christenson (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: The Novelization), Nicole Gustaffson (Nimasprout), and more. The story will focus on mice of all furs and trades gathering once again to swap tales of courage and adventure over drinks. The storytellers can’t help but attempt to outdo one another, because the mouse who tells the best tale will get their bar tab cleared.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon spoke about creator David Petersen by saying:
David has created a huge, sprawling world that’s rich with possibilities—and it’s hard to imagine him ever running out of stories to tell. So when he opens the sandbox and brings other creators into the world of Mouse Guard, it’s always a celebration and an event. This is one of the biggest volumes of Legends yet, with some of the most talented creators in the industry, all bookended by David’s beautiful artwork and celebrating 10 amazing years of Mouse Guard. We can’t wait to share this with current and future Mouse Guard readers!
This is one of those series that I always admire from afar, but still haven’t had the chance to read yet. However, after seeing this, I am one hundred percent on board to participate in this 10-year celebration! There is something so alluring about the style of this series, so I can see why people have gravitated towards it for so long. Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 3 #1 arrives in comic shops on March 11th. There will be three beautiful wraparound covers to choose from!
