The Mice Templar Volume II: Destiny 4 (October 2009)

The Mice Templar Volume II: Destiny #4

Just before the issue ended, I realized Glass had finally delivered what I’ve been waiting for on Destiny–the full forward motion. He’s done with the exposition–even his third person narration is sparse; it immediately informs the reader of the setting. The scenes and characters do the rest.

And Glass is moving away from exposition in a comic with a full flashback to the true story of the fall of the Templar too. The timing of the flashback in the issue is essential and has to do with the character development going on. Karic isn’t just his own character here, he’s separate from his friends and family. That other plot line? It feels liberated too. Destiny is moving forward.

There’s also a lot of fantastic action in the issue. Glass gets to do fight scenes of various flavors and just a bunch of movement. He and Glass’s work is infectiously invigorated.

  1. Well thank you. I will certainly get around to reading a mice comic now. Your comments make me curious as to how a property like this could of been passed up in this era of comic driven movies.

    1. It looks like Cartoon Network optioned it years and years ago and never did anything… hopefully someone else will pick it up. Though stop motion would really do it the most justice…
