“Petersen’s selection is skillful and apt; each writer and artist brings skill and respect for the source material to the individual stories, illuminating Petersen’s world rather than using it as a mere palimpsest on which to indulge their own obsessions. Legends is an example to other creators interested in shared worlds.” -Publishers Weekly

“If you read the previous Legends books or hardcover, you’ll find this…consistent with that level of excellent storytelling. If you haven’t read them yet, don’t let that hold you back! You’ll pick up all you need to know from the framing sequences. If this is your first time sampling Mouse Guard, I hope you become just as big a fan as I am!” -Wayne Hall, Major Spoilers
