A saying of the Mouse Guard is "it's not what you fight, but what you fight for", and this motto comes very much into play with this volume. We discover the underlying emotions that drive each of the heroes forward. The Guard doesn't simply fight to protect their civilization, but rather they fight for some very personal and emotional reasons. It's hard not to get emotional while reading this book, especially in the scenes where a single panel conveys a vast amount of emotion. Whether it's Saxon's discovery of the remains of his former mentor in a weasel dungeon, or Sadie and Kenzie seeking comfort from each other in a vast darkness, or Lieam's heartfelt determination to save his friend in the midst of a driving snowstorm, the reader feels exactly what the heroes feel in their most desperate hours.
Mouse Guard 1152 is a fantastic read for readers 10 and up. Younger and more sensitive readers may find some of the scenes disturbing and frightening however, and parents should be cautioned that the world of the Mouse Guard is often just as brutal as it is in nature.
The winter has proved a hard one for the Mouse Guard. A party of Mouse Guards are sent out to gather much needed medicine. On the way they stumble into a lot of trouble. The party is separated and two of the mice must battle for their lives against an evil owl. The other half of the party ends up in Darkheather, an old weasle kingdom, and struggles through the tunnels trying to find their way out. Meanwhile back home there is a traitor that threatens all of the mice.
This was another wonderful book. The artwork thoughout the book is absolutely beautiful, detailed, and stunning. It just sucks you right into the story. The coloring is subdued and has a very classic fantasy flavor to it. Just love the artwork in here; it adds so much to the story and is easy to follow.
The story was also very well done. All of our favorite mice are back in the story including The Black Ax. I felt like the story in this book was tighter then in the first book. Each chapter follows three storylines: what's happening back home, what's happening in Darkheather, and what's happening with the great owl fight. It was easy to keep track of what was going on and to follow who was who.
I really love that me and my 5 year old son can enjoy this story together. There aren't a ton of graphic novels out there that are this well done and appeal to such a broad age group.
Overall just a superb addition to the Mouse Guard series. Beautiful illustrations and a well done plot that is complex, but not hard to follow. This book has appeal for a wide range of ages and is highly recommended to fantasy fans.
Author of "Gabriel Jennings and the Ferret Freedom Fighters."
What amazed me most about the books wasn’t just the phenomenal artwork, as you can see from the picture here and on the cover, but also the story itself. Often with comics, the story takes a backseat of sorts to the artwork, which is only natural for a mostly visual medium such as comics. Still, every so often, the story is told with a lot of talent, wit, and vision. Now-defunct Crossgen Comics was able to do that across not just several issues, but across titles, spanning their entire line.
The story of Mouse Guard is that of sentient mice on an Earth-like world where humans never evolved. Mice became intelligent and created their own civilization, with everything that entails, including enemies (weasels, owls, and various other animals). In this book, "Winter 1152," six issues of the comic are collected to tell us of the fight of the mice to save what remains of their society, decimated by sickness and treachery. Petersen's worldbuilding is top-notch with this series, and it's easily seen that he knows every nook and cranny of this world. Every bit as complex as any fantasy novel I’ve read (except perhaps "Wheel of Time" and "Game of Thrones"), Mouse Guard brings us into a world so far removed from what we’re used to that it could easily be alien, but with a deft touch, Petersen makes these furry new friends of ours relatable.
"Winter 1152" is about strength through adversity, not just in terms of the weather, or illness, but of moral strength, courage in the face of overwhelming odds, and fighting for what’s right in a world of chaos, betrayal, and evil. With wonderful art, a great story, and excellent production value, this book is well worth adding to your collection.
