In the Winter of 1152, the Mouse Guard face a food and supply shortage threatening the lives of many a mouse through a cold and icy season. Some of the Guard's finest - Saxon, Kenzie, Lieam, and Sadie, led by Celanawe, the legendary Black Axe - traverse the snow-blanketed territories acting as diplomats to improve relations between the mouse cities and the Guard, and find themselves on a race against time to deliver crucial medicines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just beautiful artwork... 22 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the second collection of Mouse Guard and you really do need to read the first book Mouse Guard: Autumn 1152 before this one.

The most impressive thing about this series is the artwork. Both the individual issues and the hardback collections are released in this short or wide format - much akin to childrens books rather than the normal comic book format. This is used to allow some beautifully realised full page scenes and stunning wide screen shots. Yes, the artwork is just prefect for the tone, in the current mainstream comic book industry, things are much shaper and colouring done via computer assistance. This looks much more natural which I suppose suits the nature of the story as its main characters are mice.

It is easy to compare this to Brian Jacques' Redwall series, after all it is about warrior mice, but the world is quite different.

Story wise this continues on from Fall 1152, it continues to develop the characters and the long standing story arc, although each series does seem to deal with a complete story.

This is a tale of adventure, bravery, treacher, comradely and mouse politics! While not as strong as the first book, if you liked that, you'll continue to like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Black Axe! 3 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After reading this I can't wait for the Black Axe origin story. Some genuinely edge-of-seat bits in this, and the writing and artwork continue to be some of the best out there. Would LOVE to see a film of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars The art is the main draw 14 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Much like the previous book, I found the main draw to Mouse Guard was the beautiful artwork which really draws you into the world of the Guard. The story isn't particularly memorable, but in my opinion the illustrations more than make up for this. If you we're a fan of the original book, then this is a definite must buy, but I don't think it would change the opinion of anyone who found the original a bit slow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouseguard review 6 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
Mouseguard by David Petersen is something ive been addicted to drawing since i bought the first in the series, his style of story telling and visual story telling are second to none and if you ever get a chance to flick though this book, you will fall in love as i did with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars and again 15 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover
taking what was already a fantastic story and expanding on it, the Winter of 1152 takes the epicness and unbelievable Brilliance of David Petersen's Mouse Guard to a whole new level. The art again, is simply epic and stunning, and the plot this time round unleashes some marvellous vistas on you, as well as some...real, real, eye opening sequences. The Owl scene is worth the price alone - so multiply that by, oh i don't know, a factor of a thousand. A truly sublime piece of fiction that defies any presumption you have. Read.
