Every few years a new comic creator comes along and simply blows people away with their first major work.
David Petersen did just that last year with Mouse Guard, a thrilling tale of heroic rodents who protect their towns and villages from day-to-day dangers — that is, until three of them discover a much greater threat against mousekind.
Guardsmice Lieam, Kenzie and Saxon have discovered there is a traitor in their midst, a mysterious mouse who is gathering followers and planning to seize control of the capital city of Lockhaven unless they can find a way to stop him.
Page after page of lavish and finely detailed art and a surprisingly edgy storyline that evokes the best elements of The Secret Of NIMH and Jeff Smith’s Bone made Mouse Guard my choice for best miniseries of 2006 and this top-quality hardcover collected edition certainly does it justice.
