Return to the June Alley Inn for tales of courage and adventure this March as Archaia, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, presents the latest addition to David Petersen’s Eisner and Harvey Award-winning Mouse Guard series, Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 3. Following two award-nominated volumes, and in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Mouse Guard, this four-issue series collects brand-new tales (and tails) from a mix of some of the biggest creators and some of the brightest new talents in comics, 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.
“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,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “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!”
In Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 3 #1, mice of all furs and trades have once again gathered at the June Alley Inn to swap tales of courage, adventure, and craftsmanship over drinks. The storytellers can’t help but try to outdo one another, as the mouse who tells the best tale gets their bar tab cleared. This issue features stories by Young, Buckingham, and Christenson, while the scenes in the Inn connecting them all are by Petersen.
