Mouse Guard


Mouse Guard, Volume 1: Fall 1152Mouse Guard, Volume 1: Fall 1152 by David Petersen

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The art of these books always grabbed me when I saw them on the shelf, and I finally made the time to read them. I had a similar reaction to all three. The stories are okay, with traditional fantasy motifs, but they didn't really grab me, yet I still find the art beautiful. While the characters are interesting, I didn't connect with any of them. Again, though, they are totally worth the pretty pictures.

This book is more of a continuation than a sequel to the first, as the characters deal with the revelations and aftermath of that book. Again, the characters never grabbed me, but the art, this time set against a stark winter background, is beautiful.

This is an anthology of many different writers and artists telling stories in Petersen's Mouse Guard world. Petersen sets the frame - a bunch of mice in a tavern telling tales - and the tales are done in different styles. It's enjoyable enough, and the art is again beautiful, but the story and characters didn't grab me.
