    "Mouse Guard: The Black Axe" #6 promises a hardcover collection soon, but this is great enough that if you simply can't wait, I wouldn't be at all surprised. This is the sort of series that you won't mind buying twice; each issue because you can't wait for another installment, and then a collection to sit on your bookshelf for easy access. With a smart epilogue that advances the main narrative of Redfur in the "present" day of 1153, "Mouse Guard: The Black Axe" #6 is a satisfying conclusion to this mini-series, and already has me eager for the next mini-series. Here's hoping it's soon. Read Full Review
