Nimpentoad authors at Comic-Con

Josh and Harrison Herz with Mouse Guard author/illustrator David Petersen.

Carmel Valley residents Henry Herz and his young co-authors (sons Josh and Harrison) of the kids’ fantasy book Nimpentoad were at the recent San Diego Comic-Con, where the Lord of the Rings fansite gave away signed copies of Nimpentoad.

The authors had a great time meeting Mouse Guard author/illustrator David Petersen, Age of Bronze author/illustrator Eric Shanower, Star Wars cartoon illustrator Grant Gould, Sir Richard Taylor (head of Peter Jackson’s prop company, Weta), and the three trolls from the upcoming Hobbit movie.
