    As a parent of two small boys who believes in the value of a well-written, age-appropriate comic as a viable source of entertainment and personal development, this book hits all the right spots. Yet, I also have to say that this series continues to prove it is equally enjoyable for adult readers as well " not as a "guilty pleasure reading," but as a series of stories that are rich and thoughtful in the topics explored in each issue.

    It doesn't matter if the stories are true or not, it just matters is they are good. In this case, the stories are wonderfully told and a privilege to read. Read Full Review

    This is my first experience with Mouse Guard, but I have to say that Im not only looking forward to delving into Petersens rodent world, but Ill for sure put the next issue of this anthology, Legends of the Guard, Volume 2 on my pull-list. If youre a fan of any of these artist, love rodent stories, or just want something fun to read and beautiful to look at, then this is the book for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 27, 2013

    As with any collection of short stories, reader mileage will vary. On the whole these stories were enjoyable and did a decent job of further building the world of "Mouse Guard" but it wasn't a volume that will stay with me the way much of the regular series has. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 27, 2013

    The Legends of the Guard series is built with die-hard Mouse Guard fans in mind, and those readers will most likely enjoy this comic quite a bit. The middle story, especially, adds quite a lot to the mythos and world of the Guard, and is probably worth the price of admission itself. I'll be back for more Legends, as I enjoy exploring this world whenever possible, but as of yet the anthology won't be at the top of my read pile. Read Full Review
