Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 #1

Watermarked PDF

In Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper among all of the world's harsh conditions and predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed. They are not simply soldiers that fight off intruders; rather, they are guides for commonmice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden mouse village to another.  The Guard patrol borders, find safeways and paths through dangerous territories and treacherous terrain, watch weather patterns, and keep the mouse territories free of predatory infestation. They do so with fearless dedication so that they might not just exist, but truly live.  In this first issue of Mouse Guard, titled The Belly of the Beast, Saxon, Kenzie, & Lieam are dispatched to find a missing merchant mouse that never arrived at his destination.  In doing so they stumble onto much more than they had bargained for.

Written and illustrated by Russ Manning Award winner David Petersen, Mouse Guard has quickly become a critical and fan favorite, including citations such as Wizard Magazine's Best Indie Adventure Book of 2006;'s Best Indie Book of the Year; Canada’s Metro News' Best Mini-series of 2006; placing in the top 10 lists of 2006 for The Oklahoman, Logan (West Virginia) Banner, Derek Ash's, and Guy LeCharles Gonzalez’s Comic Book Commentary; and from Broken Frontier awards for David Petersen as Best Artist—Independent, Mouse Guard as Paper Screen Gem—Best Debut Book of 2006.

“Petersen's full-color comics so deftly capture the essence of the mouse world and its inhabitants that they'll hook readers 10 and older. The artist's attention to detail in his animal characters and their emotions, and the intriguing perspectives in the woodland setting are breathtaking.”  — Deborah Abbott, Chicago Sun-Times

“Petersen's art in Mouse Guard is…stunning. Lush and stippled, it's sublimely colored and profoundly beautiful.”  — The A.V. Club at The Onion

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
