The June Alley Inn, located in the western mouse city of Barkstone, is lively tonight—a throng of mice are excitedly spinning fantastic yarns in a storytelling contest! The tall tales in this issue include: a mouse raised by foxes must come to terms with what he really is; a mouse artist is taught a lesson after a critic is motivated by one of his owl paintings; a Guardmouse employs an unusual method to protect a town from a flood; and, in a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” a mouse is tortured by the loss of his love. LEGENDS OF THE GUARD is a continuing anthology series with artists and storytellers handpicked by creator David Petersen. Featured in this issue are tales by Guy Davis (B.P.R.D.), Katie Cook (FRAGGLE ROCK), Nate Pride (LIBRARY OF WONDER: JULES VERNE) and Jason Shawn Alexander (QUEEN & COUNTRY).
