The final issue of Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #6 goes on sale next week, and it wraps up not only the origin of the legendary Black Axe but a series of pin-ups that run in each issue. #6 features a pin-up by the team of Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart. David Petersen’s fantasy epic starring mice has always been equal parts cute and majestic and Mignola/Stewart have nailed the vibe.
Previous pin-ups are by Alex Sheikman (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths), Sean Rubin (Redwall, Bolivar), Duncan Fegredo (Hellboy), Charles Paul Wilson III (The Stuff of Legend), and Shane-Michael Vidaurri (Iron).
Although this issue wraps up The Black Axe, Mouse Guard will be back in a future storyline.
