Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 Best Seller

Archaia are obviously pleased as punch to share this with the world. It’s great news for creator David Petersen too, as his fantasy epic starring mice and assorted creatures flies off the shelves. Press release below.

‘MOUSE GUARD: WINTER 1152’ IS A ‘NEW YORK TIMES’ BEST SELLER

DEBUTS AT #4 ON THE HARDCOVER GRAPHIC BOOKS BEST SELLER LIST

Archaia is proud to announce that Archaia’s own Mouse Guard Vol. 2: Winter 1152 by David Petersen has debuted at #4 on The New York Times Hardcover Graphic Books Best Seller List, week ending August 1.

The rankings on the list, according to The New York Times, “reflect sales of graphic novels, for the week ending August 1, at many thousands of venues where a wide range of books are sold nationwide. These include hundreds of independent book retailers (statistically weighted to represent all such outlets); national, regional and local chains; online and multimedia entertainment retailers; university, gift, supermarket, discount department stores and newsstands. In addition, these rankings also include unit sales reported by retailers nationwide that specialize in graphic novels and comic books.”

“I am amazed and honored that Mouse Guard Vol. 2: Winter 1152 even made a list like The New York Times Best Sellers,” said Petersen. “I’m already proud of the work I did on this book, so to see the fans are eager to read it only makes the whole experience more fulfilling and I thank them for that!”

“To keep this one short and sweet, Mouse Guard exemplifies all things Archaia strives to be with every single title,” said PJ Bickett, president of Archaia. “David deserves every accolade and praise and he has paved the way for what a successful Creator title should represent.”

Also available from Archaia are previous Mouse Guard titles Mouse Guard Vol. 1: Fall 1152 and the Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game. For a complete list of Archaia’s Graphic Novel Backlist, see pg. 199 in the August 2009 issue of Previews catalog.

Archaia Returns

They used to be known as ASP or Archaia Studios Press. Now it’s just Archaia. They’ve been out of regular comics production for over a year, but are now back, with new and resumed series, such as The Engineer and Robotika, and that’s good news. Right now, on Broken Frontier, there’s a couple of cool Archaia updates. I reviewed David Petersen’s Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 #6. It’s the first issue I’ve read and I was quite impressed. It’s beautiful to look at. There’s also an in-depth roundtable interview with 3 of the guys behind the revamped Archaia, which offers some good (and rare) insights into the decisions behind an indie publisher.
