For Free Comic Book Day in 2013, Archaia is proud to present a square flip book containing a collection of original short stories from some of its all-ages-friendly titles! In David Petersen’s Mouse Guard short, a young Sadie is told a mouse fairy tale about proving one’s self and the best trait to look for in love. Royden Lepp’s Rust tells how rocket-boy Jet Jones learns an important lesson while helping the younger members of the Taylor family with their daily chores on the farm. This spectacular, free one-shot also includes original short stories from Sean Rubin’s upcoming, enchanting dinosaur tale, Bolivar; Jim Henson’s fantasy classic, Labyrinth (an Archaia original graphic novel by Ted Naifeh, Adrianne Ambrose, and Cory Godbey is in the works); and Nate Cosby and Chris Eliopoulos’ justice-seekin’ boy hero, Cow Boy. As an added bonus, there’s also fun Pantalones, TX activity pages by Yehudi Mercado!
