    1. I enjoyed this volume as much as Volume 2 I love seeing the different variety in art styles, and the range was wide here as almost every story had a totally different look and feel to it Im not as much for the rhyming stories, but I know lovers of poetry would probably appreciate them Some of the stories are even silent, but the pictures tell the story without words Overall, if you liked the first volume you ll like the second.


    2. This is the second volume of Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard that I have read and enjoyed It s a collection or anthology of different authors and illustrators coming together to each tell their own fable or story in the Mouse Guard world originally created by David Petersen The collection of the first volume was excellent, with some truly stunning illustrations and whilst the stories are all fairly simplistic, they are all very beautiful in their own unique ways.I had a couple of really stand o [...]


    3. This was only all right.It s an anthology of a bunch of short stories, but most of them are SO short that I don t have time to care I did like the art on the one that Willingham did And I liked best the one that won the story telling contest, the dialogue less one about the mermouse And I do like the interstitial art, by the actual Mouse Guard guy I want Mouse Guard Actual Mouse Guards, guarding things Stop anthologizing and get with the guarding Bring on Spring Sheesh.


    4. Well, I m not sure what I thought I would get from this volume, considering how lukewarm I was about the first Legends book This repeated the exact same scenario, this time with stories that felt even less fleshed out Still love Mouse Guardjust going to stick to the main works in the series now.


    5. Thoroughly enjoyed this Wonderful artwork and interesting story telling combined And how amazing to see the style of each artist in turn A treat in every way I usually enjoy stories in which small animals take on heroic roles, and this is another example of that I recommend



    6. Lovely I liked this even better than the first Legends of the Guard collection Now I just want to know when Petersen will come out with another REAL Mouse Guard story


    7. Volume 2 in the Legends of the Guard series holds up in comparison to Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard, Vol 1 I loved Bill Willingham s The Veteran , but Bill fell just a touch short of my and Petersen s favorite Christian Slade s Love of the Sea The love story between a sailor and mermouse proved to be immensely popular with Amanda and the kids as well.The anthology with guest authors format has made reading the Legends series fun for our family We ll give Volume 3 a look as well.


    8. This is the second year in a row that the mouse innkeeper holds a contest to see which of her regular customers can clear their annual tab by telling her the best story The stories are written and illustrated by people other than Petersen, so the styles vary widely, but I liked all of them this time around.


    9. Another wonderful anthology collection from the world of Mouse Guard Again, this is the type of anthology that s actually wonderful as opposed to being a money making ploy Good writing and pacing from quite a few authors, with Petersen s lovely interludes featuring June and a plethora of engaging mice.




    10. Mouse guard is just too cute I seriously love seeing the different artist ake on the mouse guard art but I love the original way too much


    11. I have just started getting some advance copies of books and Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Volume 2 is one of the first books I have had the privilege to get to read and talk about for free before its release in a few weeks.Mouse Guard has been on my radar for a while, when I have seen samples of previous books or flicked through copies in book shops I have always been drawn to the beautiful images and when this combined with the positive word of mouth I heard about the series I really have b [...]


    12. Better than the first still underwhelming.It s hard to mark up the demands for a creator curated anthology such as this And yet, with LEGENDS OF THE GUARD, VOL 2, it is perhaps fairest to say that the breadth of stories constituting it s substance, though varied and occasionally dynamic, is its own curse The previous volume s largest detriment was a lack of coherence This particular volume appears to have resolved the dilemma of coherence but introduced the problem of continuity, or restlessness [...]



    13. This is the second book in the Legends of the Guard series by David Petersen This book continues in the tradition of the first book The book is full of a variety of short stories in graphic novel format, the majority of them feature adventures of David Petersen s Mouse Guard.Mice have gathered at the June Alley Inn for another chance at clearing their debt with the Inn by winning a contest to tell the best story possible Storytellers feature a wide range of authors artists such as Charles Paul W [...]


    14. ARC provided by NetGalleyIn this second collection of Legends of the Guard, Petersen and a group of fantastic guest artists and writers, share their own unique visions and tales of the Mouse Guard Our setting is the June Alley Inn, located in Barkstone, as the mice gather to tell tales in hopes of having their debt settled for telling the best one The competition is fierce and only one mouse can win.I always enjoy seeing how other artists and writers take on different characters, because they br [...]


    15. A few months ago I stumbled upon Mouse Guard The Black Axe or Mouse Guard 3 I really liked it The drawing was so detailed and I could not wait to learn about the series Recently, I saw that another graphic novel was available on Netgalley and did a little dance as I clicked the button to get it This time it is Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Volume 2 now granted I have not read Volume 1 so I am a little sad about that, but I was excited to see where this one picked up.I am so happy that I did [...]


    16. The second volume of Legends of the Guard contains thirteen stories that showcase the writing and illustration styles of the contributors Once again the patrons of the June Alley Inn have gathered to tell tales that they hope will clear their outstanding debt for room and board As each mouse has a turn to share a tale never before heard, their listeners and we as readers , have the chance to enjoy the adventure, danger, romance, and heroism they describe Although we may disagree with June about [...]


    17. Genre High fantasy ishfeelings A few small feelingsHappiness Smiling Cuteness A few small awwwwws for a hopeless romanticFast pacing Nope Good quick read thoughSeries Yes, but this one can be read as a singleRead if you like Redwall Cute mousies Fun animal based worlds.Content Clean One story had some blood.In one sentence Beautiful collections of beautiful artwork storiesVolume 2 of a series, yes, but when I flipped through it and saw all the art I knew I really wanted to read it.What a pretty [...]


    18. I think I liked this one better than the first volume At the least, the art is all enjoyable, unlike one story in the first volume Though I do wish that there were just two volumes of Mouse Guard written and illustrated by David Petersen, rather than explorations by other artists I think my favorite story in this volume was Back and Forth since it illustrated beautiful and interesting locations, and was an art style that I liked Also interesting was The Shade since it had a uniquely supernatura [...]


    19. Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard, Volume 2, is a great concept that works beautifully Guest writers and artists were invited to tell tales within the world of Mouseguard Instead of having stories and art that would seem strange in the context of the story arc, an unusual framing story is set up.It seems that many of the mouseguard have been accruing debt in June Alley Inn, so an interesting story contest is proposed The winner who tells the best tale will have their debt forgiven This launches i [...]


    20. A collection of short stories that add to the background of the Mouse Guard books, as expected some tales were better than others Just like June, I ve narrowed it to my top three Love of the Sea by Christian Slade.The intricate pencilwork was just beautiful A silent tale, these frames tell all you need to know A briefly told love story than spans a life time plus a mermouse The Veteran by Bill Willingham and Brad Thomte.A retired guardmouse fends off a predatory tom using nothing than his wits [...]


    21. As story anthologies go, this is one of the best graphic novel ones I ve come across It helps that there are fairly rigid guidelines given the guest authors artists in that they have to compose tales that would fit in the Mouse Guard world The artwork and the tales are greatly varied, but they are given cohesiveness by an overarching story setting All the stories are being told by clients of an inn in the Mouse Guard world in a contest to pay for their bills Though the art was varied in style an [...]


    22. I didn t fully enjoy the first volume, but I liked this one The short stories were interesting and the art was captivating.


    23. I ve always enjoyed reading the Mouse Guard series, but Legends is a refreshing take on the whole mythos and it s great to see other artists put their own spin on stories we may be familiar with.Out of the two anthologies, mostly because of the stories I read in this one there are tales of mice at sea finding and losing and then finding love all over again, a retelling of a Brothers Grimm story which I hadn t heard of, and even some cutesy adventures which just makes you go aww at the illustrati [...]


    24. For me, the Legends of the Guards provide two rate treats an opportunity to read fables or fairy tales like when I was a child and to enjoy the most wondrous comic book art The premise is that patrons of an inn, who owe a debt, are once again gathered to tell their best tales as a chance to have their debts cleared It s an evening of comraderie, story, and celebration of all best of the Mouse Guard Each story is written and drawn by a different guest artist, and I truly appreciate that the edito [...]


    25. I enjoyed this entry in the Legends series but not quite as much as the first The art was beauitful and I enjoyed reading the various different tales None of the stories stuck me especially, unlike those of the first volume I was also a little put off in the beginning when I noticed some reused art from one panel to the next It was highly distracting I spent a little while comparing the art and trying to figure out if I was just missing something before I finally forced myself to forget it and m [...]


    26. Another nice anthology style collection set in David Petersen s Mouse Guard universe, which features a medieval world of tiny mice communities, linked by trade and the roving guardsmice that protect them from larger and often hungry threats.Petersen sets a crew of fellow creators loose in his world, using a storytelling contest in an inn to gather the different tales The writers and artists display a range of styles, telling everything from light hearted romps to ghost stories and murine wars Th [...]
