In the world of Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper amongst harsh conditions and a host of predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed: more than just soldiers that fight off intruders, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden village to another. The Guard patrol borders, find safeways and paths through dangerous territories and treacherous terrain, watch weather patterns, and keep the mouse territories free of predatory infestation. They do so with fearless dedication so that they might not just exist, but truly live. Saxon, Kenzie and Lieam, three such Guardsmice, are dispatched to find a missing merchant mouse that never arrived at his destination. Their search for the missing mouse reveals much more than they expect, as they stumble across a traitor in the Guard's own ranks.

La historia es sencilla, ratones y el cómo viven en el año de 1152. a mi al principio me parecía muy gracioso como ver a ratones haciendo cosas de humanos y no podía dejar de reír pero poco a poco se me quito y lo fui leyendo con más seriedad. Es una gran novela gráfica la historia no tiene complica...
Adorable mice fight all their common predators, and each other. The characterizations were weak - so much so that I couldn't keep the threads of a relatively simple OMG THERE ARE TRAITORS AMONG US story from getting all tangled up. I dug the idea of making these little creatures badass - there's a r...
