‘Mouse Guard: The Black Axe’ #5 went on sale last week and Comic Book Resources’ Kelly Thompson, reviews Peterson’s newest released ‘Mouse Guard’ tale.
As usual with “Mouse Guard,” Peterson’s art is lovely and he merges his writing and art flawlessly. The unusual format (horizontal and odd-sized) is a wonderful choice for these large detailed panels. Peterson’s world building is effortless at this point. Whether he’s giving us the materials for a new boat or “uncharted” islands our heroes have never seen before, it all fits together seamlessly with a depth that most comics can only dream of. The fact that Peterson can get me to care about mice still astounds me, but he’s given them such emotion and character that it’s impossible not to fall in love with them on this epic journeys.
