The second chapter in the saga of the Mice Templar begins here! The Templar have fallen, leaving the natural world in the grip of tyrants and ever-increasing chaos. The promise of restoration for the Templar and the salvation of all creatures now lies in the paws of the newly-knighted Karic. But as sinister powers seek to thwart him, others are desperate to use his mission for personal agendas. Now Karic is anxious to complete his training so that he might rescue his family from slavery. But his new master is Cassius, a bitter Templar exile who does not believe in Karic's destiny. Their journey takes them to the legendary Haunted Wood, a dead forest inhabited by Diabhlan, ancient evil spirits hungry to feed off of living souls.

    I had very high expectations for this issue due to the great work that Glass and Oeming did on the first volume. Not only did this issue meet those expectations, it exceeded them on all levels. The creative team brings the goods and then some. With amazing character work, an engaging story, and simply gorgeous art, this issue really has it all. The Stuff of Legend made choosing the week's best book very difficult, but the brilliant debut of Victor Santos and the incredibly smart storytelling by Bryan J.L.

    Mania - Chris Smits Aug 1, 2009

    This book is an incredibly fun tale to read. The artwork and story work so entertainingly well together that it becomes a fairy tale that's timeless. Action and drama are given equal duties and that seems to be what seperates it from being just another comic book that has talking animals with swords. The characters are solidly endearing, have legit depth to them and the struggles they're facing are ones that you want to see them face. I'm grading this at a highly recommended B. If you're new to The Mice Templar, I also have to recommend that you run out and grab the collected edition of Volume One and then move on to this. It's an adventure the likes of which you'll have no real reason not to enjoy. Read Full Review
