-The Mouse Guard PVC figures have arrived!!!

I ran out to my local comic shop (Detroit Comics in Ferndale, MI) and snapped a photo of the trio all boxed up and sitting on the display table. Yay!!! It's very cool to have these guys out in time for Christmas. Word from Diamond is that the Lieam plush will follow 'in a few weeks'. I hope that can be out for Christmas as well. I can't explain how cool/surreal it is to walk into a shop and see figures of your creation...

-2008 Appearances:
I have not posted my full 2008 convention schedule yet, but I plan on nailing it down before the new year arrives. For now thought I wanted to highlight two that are coming up sooner than later and I wanted to get the info out.

-Mouse Guard Reading at the Flint Public Library.
The reading date has been moved again. I'm sorry
about any confusion this may cause, but the reading
is now set to take place Saturday January 5th at 2pm
Two of my close friends (of whom Lieam and Kenzie
are based) will be helping me read a selection of Fall
1152 aloud while the images of the book are projected.

-Mouse Guard Gallery Show
The Flint Institue of the Arts (FIA) has offered to display
original Mouse Guard artwork and asked me to do a slide-
show presentation/Q&A and signing. The gallery opening
and presentation will be Saturday March 29th.

-Death Ray Magazine
A UK Sci-Fi magazine called Death Ray did an interview with me and is now out on newsstands (Issue #8). Big thanks to Clair who did the interview and to Death Ray for the oppertunity to reach a UK audience!!

Mouse Guard Winter 1152 #2:
The second installment of the Winter series is due to be in stores October 31st! I have put a preview to the issue in the books and winter sections of the Mouse Guard site.

Original Art for sale:
I decided to make a gallery of the pages from Mouse Guard that are for sale. You will find a link in the 'for sale' section of the Mouse Guard site. I offer pages on a first come-first serve basis. New pages are available (even if I have not gotten them uploaded to the gallery) the day that particular issue arrives in stores. Covers are the same procedure. (I'm keeping the cover to issue 4 of Winter...which has not been posted anywhere yet...). I accept paypal.

Black and White Limited Fall 1152:
The 12" x 12" slip cased book limited to 1000 copies is currently in previews (OCT07 3262). It's the same size as the original pages all in black and white. The rain overlays will be printed on a vellum. If you want a preview of how this will look, stop by the pages for sale section for scans of my pages in black and white.

Mouse Guard Reading re-scheduled:
As announced before, I will be doing a reading of Mouse Guard Fall 1152 with the help of a few of the talented friends some of the Guard are based on. The reading will now take place at the Flint Public Library Saturday the 19th of January at 2pm.

Character section opened:
After it was suggested by a fan at the Baltimore show, I have taken the character pages from the 2007 sketchbook and added them as a reference on the site. The characters section will continue to expand with some of the ancillary characters and new characters as time goes on. I have also uploaded 4 guides to locations from Mouse Guard as well as the map in the same section as the character descriptions. Enjoy!!

Baltimore is this weekend!!

Looking forward to the show. I'll be at the Archaia Studios Press booth all weekend. Stop by and say 'hi'

-I will be signing at Ferndale Michigan's only comic shop: Detroit Comics!
Saturday September 22nd from noon-3pm.

-I will be doing an event at the Flint Public Library in Flint, MI
on Saturday November 17th at 1pm***. Two of the friends Mouse Guard characters are based on will be helping me read chapters of the book aloud. As a voice actor geek, I am excited to essentially be doing a 'table read' with the real life humans that inspired the mice.
I will sign books after the reading.
***The Date has been changed to January of '08. I will update with a date and time as details are available

New Site!!!
I have given a facelift. There are a few sections not up and running yet, but most everything else should be working. Please bear with any hiccups the site may have.

Winter 1152 #1 is in stores 8.22.07
We released the issue at San Diego, but due to a Diamond mix-up the book is hitting stores now. Keep a look-out for the winner of the 'Join the Mouse Guard' contest Lori Johnsen's entry of Roibin. I had a lot of fun drawing both Roibin and his pet beetle Conall.

Borders signing
This Friday (August 24th) I will be signing at Borders Bookstore in the Oakland Mall in Troy, MI. The signing starts at 7pm and I'm happy to sign your Mouse Guard issues as well as Hardcovers. Borders will have hardcovers available for purchase. If you are in the area, stop by!

Baltimore Comic Con info
Only a little over a few weeks away from the Baltimore con. I'll be at the Archaia booth both Saturday and Sunday. I'll be signing and chatting as usual. I'll also be doing inked sketches for $40 and selling Mouse Guard original pages. I'm looking forward to seeing pals Sergio Aragones, Craig Rousseau, and Andy Runton as well as lots of other artists I am a fan of as well. This will also be my last con of the season now that the Motor City show is an anual event.

Other MG News:
There are some fun developments happening with Mouse Guard items we are working on..things that the fans have asked for. I'm sorry to be a tease, but I can't say much more than that right now, but I'll post things as soon as an official announcement has been made.
