A Return To Honor. The first Mouse Guard series comes to a smashing conclusion as the army of the pretend Black Axe, the turncoat Guard Mouse Midnight, lays siege to Lockhaven.
“Mouse Guard is a must-have. The soft palette beautifully captures the woodland setting…it’s lovely, with expressive detail.” -- Joanna Draper Carlson, www.ComicsWorthReading.com
“...This work is one of immense beauty and quality. I am deeply impressed here.” -- Alex Ness, www.popthought.com
“There's a beautiful richness to Petersen's art … This is one thoroughly attractive book that can't help but entice readers into wanting more.” -- Greg McElhatton, www.icomics.com
“The art is nothing short of beautiful...Petersen is able, with just a few panels, to make us both fall in love with his characters and feel the presence of their duty. Perhaps the greatest thing about Mouse Guard is that, while its material is both safe for and appealing to children, the story and art are good enough that adults can enjoy the book just as much. To call this a family comic book would not be a stretch. Mouse Guard is truly a rare surprise.” -- Case Cosker, www.staticmultimedia.com
“Not only is this a visually stunning piece of work, it's also filled with subtle yet strong characterization and storytelling... This is the debut of an artist-writer of real talent and promise, and comes with my highest recommendations for readers of any age.” -- Bill Baker, Blood in the Gutters
