    Petersen's style is still impeccable. His amount of detailis amazing and always impresses me how much the art plays into the tone of theseries. I like Mouse Guard because asall ages friendly the book is, it has a very dark undertone to it. The only wayI can describe the feeling of the book is to compare it to Dark Crystal, very creepy but yet so hopefully. Petersen'sstorytelling and art may not have made leaps and bounds since the last issue,but it continues to pave the way for MouseGuard to become a classic. If you've been following the series then keepreading it's worth it and if you haven't then you're in luck because each issueof Mouse Guard is very accessible. Read Full Review

    "Mouse Guard: The Black Axe" is a great down-and-dirty fantasy epic; it might star mice, but don't let that fool you. These are creatures that play for keeps, and it can get just as violent or gripping as an episode of "Game of Thrones." I know it's halfway through a mini-series, but if you've ever been curious about "Mouse Guard," the current issue of "Mouse Guard: The Black Axe" is an excellent introduction to the series. Just be warned, you'll want to buy the collected editions of the first two mini-series as soon as you're done. All things considered, that's not such a bad position to be in. You've got some good times ahead. Read Full Review

    Finally, the series gives us its best issue till now. From the first panel to the last, it is a perfect story. The first page itself made it sure that a special story was ahead. As I pointed out last time, there is an absolute perfection to the pacing of this comic; it is like a well-directed movie. The writing beautifully compensates for the over-simplified storyline. Now 3 issues old, I'm able to see subtle expression on the mice's face. But still, the main character is still a very dull person... er, mouse. This was re-readable. I easily give this a 4 out of 5.
