October 1,  2014 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – Archaia, an imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, is delighted to announce the newest addition to the epic tales—or tails—of Eisner and Harvey Award-winning creator David Petersen’s beloved Mouse Guard series. Shipping in November, Mouse Guard: Baldwin the Brave and Other Tales is a beautiful hardcover that collects the Mouse Guard short stories that originally appeared in Archaia’s last four Free Comic Book Day offerings, along with two brand-new tales created by Petersen exclusively for this collection.

Mouse Guard continues to be a perennial favorite for a legion of readers, and it’s easy to see why,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “David is truly a unique talent that approaches everything he creates with passion, innovation, and the handmade touch of an artisan. We’re honored to publish these stories and characters that we love so much. And the only way to do them justice is to collect these Free Comic Book Day stories, as well as two brand-new stories, in a beautiful hardcover that will sit nicely alongside the rest of the Mouse Guard collection.”

In Mouse Guard: Baldwin the Brave and Other Tales, every hero was once a child, listening to stories of the heroes who came before them. It is the same with the Mouse Guard. Six mouse fables are spun to a few familiar youngfurs, reminding us all to be brave, stay true to ourselves, and follow our hearts. Brand-new stories include “Service to Seyan,” set in the land where Mouse warriors travel after death, and “Oh, Day Away,” a tale of the insect faeries of the Mouse world!
