I talked to David Petersen, writer and illustrator of the comic book “Mouse Guard” at the Big Apple Con!
Here’s an excerpt from MouseGuard.net
The mice struggle to live safely and prosper among all of the world’s harsh conditions and predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed. After persevering against a weasel warlord in the winter war of 1149, the territories are no longer as troubled. True, the day to day dangers exist, but no longer are the Guard soldiers, instead they are escorts, pathfinders, weather watchers, scouts and body guards for the mice who live among the territories. Many skills are necessary for the guard to keep the borders safe. They must find new safeways and paths from village to village, lead shipments of goods from one town to another and, in case of attack, guard against all evil and harm to their territories.
‘Hail all those who are able, any mouse can, any mouse will, but the Guard prevail’
