GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: Legends of the Mouse Guard - David Petersen, Jeremy Bastian and Others

Release Date: 28/01/11


Inside the June Alley Inn, mice gather to tell fantastic tales, each trying to outdo the other. A competition, of sorts, begins. The rules: Every story must contain one truth, one lie and have never been told in that tavern before. Legends of the Guard is a new Mouse Guard anthology series featuring the work of artists and storytellers handpicked by series creator David Petersen.


Having loved the first Mouse Guard title that was released, we were absolutely chuffed to bits when this next title arrived, For the heroism of the Mouse Guard world is something that is just too gorgeous to put down.

The artwork is exquisite, the illustrations bright and colourful and when backed with fantasy tales of daring do, is just a tale that we couldn’t put down. Whilst this book is a little different from the first (the original creator having allowed a few new artists to play in his world) the story that interlinks the various threads was a pure delight and matched up to the various styles beautifully. Add to that some great stories of heroism and it’s a title that we just couldn’t put down. Highly recommended and a graphic novel for collectors of all ages.
