Dork Shelf’s Nicole Rodrigues interviews David Petersen

With the sell out success of Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard volume 1, and the upcoming re-print along with volume 2 on the horizon, Nicole Rodrigues’ interview is incredibly timely.

Below is an excerpt:

“ “It matters not what you fight, but what you fight for.”

Such is the motto of the Mouse Guard, and underlying theme of the Eisner-winning spin-off Mouse Guard: Legends of the GuardLotG is an anthology of tall tales told by mouse patrons of the June Alley Inn about the fabled Guard, with each story attempting to outdo the last while meeting three criteria: each story must hold one truth, one lie, and be previously untold in a tavern. David Petersen, writer and artist of the Mouse Guard series, brought together an amazing selection of writers and artists for the first volume of LotG and has done so again for the highly anticipated second volume debuting this month. Featuring contributions from industry legends like Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Bill Willingham(Fables), and Rick Geary (The Adventures of Blanche), to up-and-comers like Cory Godbey (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth),Legends of the Guard Volume Two is shaping up to be another amazing chapter in the Guards’ history. We sat down with Petersen at C2E2 to chat more about Legends of the Guard and find out what it’s like to have other creators play in your sandbox.”
