Format: Hardcover
Legends of the Guard stands outside of the time frame of its two predecessors, Fall (Autumn) and Winter 1152 and as such a reader could start here quite happily.

Normally I don't go for 'guest artist' spin-offs, but this doesn't feel like a spin-off at all. Indeed, it fits in so well that it truly belongs in the same hallowed hall as the previous Mouse Guard books. How so?

This is a collection of stories by authors and artists hand-picked by Petersen himself, who also links the tales together with his own contribution, which is a very clever device that justifies the different writing and art styles of the guest authors. Actually, it wouldn't have worked if Petersen had penned all the stories himself, methinks, with each tale being told by a different mouse.

The stories themselves are very enjoyable. Some read like fables while others are a slice of life or an event of note for some mouse or other, living or dead. I don't personally have a favourite, but that's alright, as I wasn't the one to lay down the challenge in the first place.

"What challenge is that?" I hear you cry. I guess you'll just have to read the Legends of the Guard to find out! (or the product info .. sigh!)

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Jan. 2011
Format: Hardcover
Having loved the first Mouse Guard title that was released, we were absolutely chuffed to bits when this next title arrived, For the heroism of the Mouse Guard world is something that is just too gorgeous to put down.

The artwork is exquisite, the illustrations bright and colourful and when backed with fantasy tales of daring do, is just a tale that we couldn't put down. Whilst this book is a little different from the first (the original creator having allowed a few new artists to play in his world) the story that interlinks the various threads was a pure delight and matched up to the various styles beautifully. Add to that some great stories of heroism and it's a title that we just couldn't put down. Highly recommended and a graphic novel for collectors of all ages.

For fans of the main series this is a series of short (sometimes very short) stories drawn and written by other artists. Of you ever wondered how the Guard started or why they have matriarchs, it will answer that questions! A very nice and worthy spinoff from the main stories.
