Mouse Guard Fall 1152

Mouse Guard Fall 1152The Mouse Guard Fall 1152, an Eisner and Foreword Award Winner, written and illustrated by David Petersen, is a collection of the Series 1 Mouse Guard comic books. This graphic novel was written for children but also entertaining for adults. The Mouse Guard was formed to protect the mice against the world’s harsh conditions and predators, but who knew their greatest enemy would be from within. A traitor mouse threatens to bring down their villages and the Guard itself. The illustrations are bold and detailed giving life to the majestic territories of the mice. Though the premise of little warrior mice may seem cute, these mice are fierce fighters and their battles are intense. I found the book an entertaining adventure and quick read. I am looking forward to the sequel, The Mouse Guard Winter 1152, due out at the end of this year.
