FCBD 2010: Exclusive Interview with Mouse Guard’s David Petersen
On May 1, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Archaia Entertainment will release an issue featuring stories from the worlds of Mouse Guard and Fraggle Rock.
David Petersen, the creator, writer, and artist of Mouse Guard, recently discussed some of the inspiration for his FCBD comic as well as how he celebrates FCBD in this exclusive interview with Freecomicbookday.com.
MouseGuard_CoverFreecomicbookday.com: Set your project up for those that might not know much about it. What can we expect to see in terms of story and art?
David Petersen: Mouse Guard is a comic series about medieval mice and their society’s struggle to survive in a world where every other animal wants to eat them. The Free Comic Book Day story is an 11-page tale that can serve as an introduction to Mouse Guard while also being a new entertaining read for the people who are already fans of it. I wanted to make sure that the story was all new, and that it would serve as a sampler for everything Mouse Guard has to offer.
