It’s a short but not sweet zero issue for the second Mice Templar series, which picks up almost immediately where the first series ended.
Writer Bryan J.L. Glass has two stories going–one has the fallout from the actions of the good priest (not exactly priest, more like elder–but still called a priest) and then one with Karic, the series’s protagonist, on the run with his new protector, Cassius.
Glass doesn’t have a lot of room to do anything and he doesn’t try. He lets new artist Victor Santos show his chops in both talking mouse heads and then an action sequence too. It’s almost more interesting as a transitory piece than anything else. There’s nothing necessary in the issue, but it’s impossible to discount it too.
The look into the activities of the elders is reason enough not to disregard it. It’s more unexpectedly deep than the stuff with Karic.
