We’re all big fans of Archaia over here at Multiversity Comics. They’ve put out some absolutely fantastic releases such as Mouse Guard, The Killer, and Days Missing, and they continue to be one of the best indie comic book publishers. Thanks to things like Free Comic Book Day, they’re going to be able to reach an even bigger audience with free Fraggle Rock and Mouse Guard comics, but on top of that they’re going to have a slew of signings across the country! There are some great creators in this list, including ones that we at Multiversity have talked to and pimped out, so take a look.
For the full press release as well as all the signings, check behind the cut!
