'MOUSE GUARD' CREATOR DAVID PETERSEN TO CRUISE THROUGH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

THE CREATOR OF THE ACCLAIMED 'MOUSE GUARD' SERIES HEADLINES AT THE
LONG BEACH COMIC CONVENTION, STOPPING FOR TWO SIGNINGS AT
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COMIC BOOK STORES ALONG THE WAY

Los Angeles, CA (September 28, 2009) -- For five days only, Eisner Award winner David Petersen will tour Southern California, providing fans the opportunity to meet the man behind the small but valiant swashbucklers of Mouse Guard: Winter 1152. Three of those days will be spent at the Long Beach Comic Convention, taking place October 2nd through 4th, where Petersen will sign a limited number of exclusive prints each day.

Petersen will begin his tour with signings at two comic book shops: Comickaze in San Diego on September 30th, and Secret Headquarters in Los Angeles on the evening of October 1st.

From there, he will proceed to Long Beach, where he can usually be found at the Archaia booth (#265), plus he will participate in several panels. Most notably, he will sit on the Archaia panel on Saturday, October 3, from 11 to 11:45am in Room B alongside other Archaia creators, where he will give away an original Mouse Guard sketch to a lucky member of the audience.

An exclusive Mouse Guard print will also be available for purchase at the Atomic Apple booth, #555, for $20. Only 75 of these prints are being made, with 25 allotted for sale during each day of the convention. Petersen will be available to sign the prints at the Atomic Apple booth each day at 4 p.m.

Petersen will also participate in the Live Art and Music party on Friday, October 2nd, at 8:30pm, in Room #204, where he and other artists, including Jim Mahfood, will draw as a band plays. The party is sponsored by Atomic Apple, ComicVine.com and Archaia.
