Michael Avon Oeming on ‘The Mice Templar’
In this brief interview at The Pulse, Jennifer M. Contino speaks with Michael Avon Oeming about his "labor of love" on The Mice Templar, his bimonthly series with Bryan Glass that touches upon various mythologies with a cast of mice and other anthropomorphic characters.
Oeming’s made it abundantly clear over time that the idea has been brewing in his head for quite a while now, but here explains what readers can expect from the series:
It’s an EPIC story. I don’t think the SCOPE can even begin to be seen until the first arc is done with issue Six. This isn’t me bragging, this is me talking about what Bryan has done. The story is huge yet focused. We take our time with it and have been criticized for it, but I’m okay with that, I’m not going to rush the story. This one has to breathe more because it has such life. That’s Bryans doing, not mine.
In the interview, Oeming continues to shower Glass with love, and explains some of the specific influences behind the series. The third issue of Mice Templar is currently on shelves.
