BOOM! Studios will return to the world of Mouse Guard with the Mouse Guard: The Owlhen Caregiver one-shot.
The issue contains three separate tales set in the Mouse Guard universe, including the titular Owlhen Caregiver. It also marks the return of writer/illustrator David Petersen to the franchise he helped create, which won an Eisner and Harvey Award respectively. The Owlhen Caregiver will be published under BOOM! Studios’ Archaia Press imprint.
“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,” said Petersen. “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,” added BOOM! Studios editor Bryce Carlson. “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.”
Mouse Guard follows a group of warrior mice in a medieval setting, who have sworn to defend their brethren at all costs. Wes Ball was originally slated to helm a Mouse Guard film before the project was canceled.
Written and illustrated by David Petersen, Mouse Guard: The Owlhen Caregiver #1 goes on sale in July from BOOM! Studios.
