Mouse Guard is an award-winning comic book series, written and illustrated by David Petersen, about medieval mice protecting their own. Last year, a writer was hired to adapt it—and now, a director may actually be turning its lush world of marauding mice into a movie.
When they aren't protecting their fellow rodents from fearsome predators, the mice of David Petersen's comic Mouse Guard are playing at being other characters — flying the Watchmen Owl Ship, snatching ancient idols à la Indiana Jones, or trying their tiny paws at the X-Men fastball special.
The Muppets may have just returned to the big screen this past fall, but BOOM! Studios has kept Kermit and the gang in business, both in The Muppet Show comics and in comics where the Muppets retell existing stories. And David Petersen's Muppet mashup covers are delightful just on their own.
