What I’m Reading Now: Furry Creatures + Swords = Adorably Badass

Mice Templar

Written By:
Bryan J.L. Glass

Art By: Michael Avon Oeming

When you think of mice and rats, what comes to mind? Laboratories? Cheese? A kung-fu master and leader of the ninja turtles? Well prepare to think again. Michael Avon Oeming & Bryan J.L. Glass takes you to the world of
Mice Templar. In Cricket’s Glen, a future hero is born. His name is Karic and he has a great destiny laid before him. Mice and rats are at war; the time of the templar is long since past, and mice begin to falter in their faith to Wotan, god of the templar. In the first six issues of this series, Oeming and Glass envelope us in this new world and give us an in depth look at these characters. The journey of Karic is an epic one, using reminiscent virtues from Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey to J. R. R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings. Oeming and Glass bring virtues fantasy together and also describing a compelling and action packed story. Oeming, a veteran in the comic medium, offers great pencils to this book and enhances the action and plot. This story was recently collected into an excellent hardcover collection and just in time for the release of Mice Templar: Destiny #1 in the coming months. After reading this and you are yearning for more furry adventures, another great title is David Petersen’s Mouse Guard. Both these titles give a whole knew spin about what people think about mice. When you think of mice and rats, what comes to mind? The correct answer is badasses.
