The remaining entries are solid to good, with Moores The Shrike and the Toad working as a charming little joke at the expense of the title animals while Worley and the Mink stays with the reader a bit longer after the initial experience thanks, in large part, to greater definition to the proceedings and characters. Perhaps neither story resonated as well with me because their visual styles didnt have as great a contrast from Petersens as did Potential. Still, solid to good, plus one excellent tale is a fine combination for an anthology such as this. Read Full Review
Issue #2 offers a respectable batch of tales. The real problem is all too familiar. The issue is a very quick read - ever more so than last month's chapter. With both the framing sequences and Moore's tale adding up to five pages total, and with neither of the other two packing in huge amounts of text, this issue can easily be devoured in a handful of minutes. As always, Mouse Guard is better enjoyed in trade format, where the reading experience can be extended to its fullest. But don't let that fact stop you from enjoying these stories in one form or another. Read Full Review
Waiting for the new "Mouse Guard" mini-series is much easier with this to fill the gap; it might not be as jaw-droppingly wonderful as Petersen's own work, but he and Archaia have lined up a strong enough group of creators that it's a nice interlude. And if you've never read "Mouse Guard" before, "Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard" is a good enough way to sample it for yourself. Read Full Review
