Mice Templar V2 Destiny #1
Well, I read it twice and pretty much get the gist of it despite not having read volume 1. It's a solid rodent fantasy, and uses a lot of ideas or tropes familiar to readers of the genre, fantasy that is not rodents, the quest, the bitter old master, the novice, the boon to be granted once, etc.
The art is pretty to look at once I got past the design of the actual mice. The artist(s), probably Victor Santos, does some interesting things with the colors and panel layout, with some nice big splash pages as well, most notably the one with the raptors. I really like the mole goblins who popped up at the end.
For the second volume of a complicated fantasy series, the book is fairly accessible although I'm sure one would be more invested in the characters if one had read volume 1.
Pretty good for owl food.
