Mouse Guard is a terrific comic that excels at unique storytelling. Every so often, it’s creator, David Petersen, let’s others play in his sandbox. That’s the premise behind this special four-issue miniseries from Archaia. The first Legends of the Guard was the 2011 Eisner Award winner for best anthology. I expected great things from this first issue as well!

What makes everything better? Peanut butter? A mother’s kiss? Shoulder pads? No. The answer is obviously Batman. If the Mouse Guard are the police, then the Black Axe is the vigilante that lurks in the shadows, striking fear in the hearts of cowardly and superstitious weasels. If you have a problem – If no one else can help – and if you can find him – maybe you can hire the Black Axe. Look for him after the jump.
