Archaia presents two, amazing, all-new stories in one fantastic flip book-David Petersen's Eisner Award-winning MOUSE GUARD and Jim Henson's beloved DARK CRYSTAL share the spotlight on Free Comic Book day!
On one side of the book, a brand-new tale of the fan-favorite Mouse Guard, elite warrior mice tasked with protecting common mice from predators, the elements and other dangers. It's the perfect introduction to Mouse Guard for new fans, and a rewarding treat for existing ones!
On the other side of the book, Archaia Entertainment is proud to present an exclusive prelude to its forthcoming series of DARK CRYSTAL graphic novels, featuring covers, art direction and concepts by Brian Froud, conceptual designer of the original film! This prelude begins the epic creation story of the world of Thra, and explores the origins of the world of the Dark Crystal!
BONUS REVIEW by DAN W
WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THIS BOOK: If you like anthropomorphic fantasy animals. Or Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal, which makes up the flip side of this book, and probably contains acid-trip sock puppets of some-kind or another.
Anyways, this is a short, fun story with the titular mice engaged in a “Scorpion and the Frog” style fable about the virtue of intelligence triumphing over physical threats. David Petersen’s art, as always, is gorgeous. Clean lines and well-rendered, realistic colors play to the story’s strengths. This is an excellent addition to the Mouse Guard mythos and well worth taking home with you come Saturday.
