Story's a bit thin, but the art's gorgeous. Also, I have a soft spot for stories with mouse protagonists.

This is an enjoyable story complemented with superb artwork. Each page is a pleasure for the eye. And the characters are so darn cute!

David Petersen’s Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 is a sequel to the first Mouse Guard graphic novel, Fall 1152. The story continues on and builds on the events of the previous graphic novel. The guard mice characters of the first graphic novel have been sent out into the cruel winter to help secure supplies and diplomatic ties for Lockhaven, the headquarters town of the Mouse Guard. Things get even more complicated when the guard mice are forced to deal with predators, mysteries and conspiracies.

The art is just as gorgeous as the previous graphic novel, and the pacing is just as good. There’s even more characterization this time around, deepening our understanding of Kenzie, Saxon, Sadie, Lieam, Celanawe and Gwendolyn, their motivations and relationships. But Petersen doesn’t skimp on the action either, with several dynamic fight scenes

As good as Mouse Guard is, it’s not perfect. It’s often difficult to keep track of all of the characters, especially since the mice all look very similar. There are also a few glaring spelling mistakes. But all in all, I enjoyed Winter 1152 a whole lot and highly recommend it.
