The tragic tale of her death is told to Celanawe and Conrad by the ferret king who was honor bound to keep her alive. The consequences lead Celanawe and Conrad to try and find a way home to the Mouse Territories so that Celanawe can return to the Guard and Conrad can try and gain the seat of Captain’s Captain in Port Sumac. Includes a pin-up by Shane Michael Vidaurri, creator of the upcoming Archaia title, Iron: Or, the War After.

    • Mouse Guard is a great book that I haven’t read in a while. I’ll have to seek out a collection.

      • Mouse Guard is one of my favorites.  I’ve never been a big talking animal fan (outside of TMNT) and was surprisd how much I liked it.

        •  When they first came out I was reading Mice Templar and Mouse Guard. Both were excellent but I burned out on talking animal overload. Now I need to pick up trades of both and not read them back to back.
