David Petersen et Boom! Studios annoncent le retour cet été de l’univers Mouse Guard avec la publication du numéro spécial The Owlhen Caregiver composé de trois histoires courtes.
Sortie en juillet !
« Which of life’s biggest lessons can be learned from the smallest amongst us? A young mouse learns that compassion and kindness are the great virtues in The Owlhen Caregiver. Meanwhile, Piper the Listener finds a brave mouse venturing into wild country to learn the tongues of other beasts. And finally, a grizzled oldfur shares the lesson of putting a whisker out too far in The Wild Wolf. »
« I’m so pleased that readers get to walk back into the Mouse Territories, be accompanied by familiar Guardmice, and encounter snakes, owls, wolves, rams, otters, toads, and foxes again. Short stories are magical things. Despite their size, they are exactly the right shape to hold large messages of morality and virtue, » Petersen said. « The common themes in these stories are ones of hope and of compassion, of service and the wellbeing of others. And every world could use more of that. »
« It’s very exciting to return to the world of Mouse Guard and engage with the characters and stories that David has beautifully created and continues to expand upon, » said Bryce Carlson, editor, BOOM! Studios. « David has an incredible talent for writing and illustrating stories that bring the reader into the richly detailed world drawn from his imagination and it’s simply a joy to spend time in this world and allow David to guide the journey. »
