Publisher Comments:

Welcome back to the world of mice in the third collected volume of the Eisner Award-winning and critically acclaimed fantasy comic series, Mouse Guard. This beautifully illustrated prequel to the two previous volumes spins the tale of wise oldfur and longtime Mouse Guard member Celanawe, as he fulfills the promise made to young Lieam to detail the day his paw first touched the legendary weapon, the Black Axe. The arrival of distant kin takes Celanawe on an adventure that will carry him across the sea to uncharted waters and lands, all while unraveling the legend of Farrer, the blacksmith who forged the mythical weapon.

Oh David Petersen, your art makes me sing! Well done, Mr. Peterson - my only regret is it sure takes a long time for one of these books to come out!

How I enjoy the world of Mouse Guard! The Ferret king - beautifully dangerous! This wonderful story, going back to before the first Mouse Guard story, tells the history of the wielder of the Black Axe. The lovely boats - especially the turtle shell boat! And the wonderful adventure packed world - this is not Redwall. (Although, if you ever enjoyed a tale of Redwall, you will like these books!)
