Favorite book this week: Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #3
All Issues new in stores on 11/30/11


Legion Secret Origin #2
Writer: Paul Levitz, Penciller: Chris Batista, Inks: Marc Deering, Colorist: Wes Hartman

Not a lot happened in this issue, but the fun scenes between Phantom Girl and Braniac 5 were worth the price of admission for me. Some decent action, not much plot beyond some vague dialogue from the shadowy adults who are semi-narrating this.


Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #3
Writer and Artist: David Petersen

This issue was actually completely worth the wait. (How long ago was this supposed to come out? #2 came out last May.) The confrontation between Celanwe and the king of the ferrets was amazing: gorgeous and stirring, everything this series can be at its best. I just hope the next issue gets here soon!


Princeless #2
Writer: Jeremy Whitley, Art and Colors: M. Goodwin

Speaking of schedule oddities, either this is here early or the last issue was late to my local store. Either way, Issue 2 is well done, if not as wall-to-wall fantastic as Issue 1. There was one sequence of a few panels in which I had a hard time following the dialogue. Other than that, the story of Adrienne the princess-rescuing princess proceeds apace.
