I’m not going to lie, I’ve really been enjoying Archaia’s Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard series. I never really got the chance to read Mouse Guard before this, but they’re really great stories, especially if you’re a fan of old tales of knights and lore.
Archaia’s sent us this six page preview of Legends of the Guard #3, which will be on stands September 1st.

The June Alley Inn, located in the western mouse city of Barkstone, is lively tonight—a throng of mice are excitedly spinning fantastic yarns in a storytelling contest! The tall tales in this issue include: a mouse raised by foxes must come to terms with what he really is; a mouse artist is taught a lesson after a critic is motivated by one of his owl paintings; a Guardmouse employs an unusual method to protect a town from a flood; and, in a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” a mouse is tortured by the loss of his love. LEGENDS OF THE GUARD is a continuing anthology series with artists and storytellers handpicked by creator David Petersen. Featured in this issue are tales by Guy Davis (B.P.R.D.), Katie Cook (FRAGGLE ROCK), Nate Pride (LIBRARY OF WONDER: JULES VERNE) and Jason Shawn Alexander (QUEEN & COUNTRY).
