Yet again, the incredibly awesome folks at Archaia Comics have sent us an exclusive preview; this one of MOUSE GUARD: LEGENDS OF THE GUARD #1.
I love Archaia’s stuff and, though I’m woefully behind and have not read much of it, I dig the idea of Mouse Guard. It’s got some gorgeous art, and is something unique and interesting.
Solicit and a seven page preview follow.

Inside the June Alley Inn, located in the western mouse city of Barkstone, mice gather to tell tales, each trying to outdo the other. A competition, of sorts, begins. The game: Tell the best story, get your bar tab cleared! The rules: Every story must contain one truth, one lie and have never been told in that tavern before. Legends of the Guard is a new Mouse Guardanthology series featuring the work of artists and storytellers handpicked by series creator David Petersen. Featured in this issue are stories by Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl), Alex Sheikman (Robotika) and Ted Naifeh (Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things).
