Posted by Sarah LeBoeuf On August - 10 - 2009


Archaia announced that their recently released graphic novel Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 made the New York Times bestseller list. The book debuted at a highly respectible #4 for the week ending August 1.


Considering that Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 was so well received, it’s not entirely surprising that the follow-up sold a lot of copies following its late July release, but this is still very good news for writer and artist David Peterson, as well as the entire team at Archaia. It’s hard not to be a fan of Mouse Guard, between the beautiful artwork and charming, intriguing plot, so if you haven’t read either book yet, you might want to put it on your to-do list.

The full press release is below. Congratulations, guys!

Los Angeles, CA (August 8, 2009) –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.
