My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Matthias Mouse, whose home is being attacked by the evil rat Cluny the Scourge, is on a quest to recover the legendary sword of Martin of Redwall, so that he can meet Cluny in battle. There are riddles and secret passageways, old enemies and unexpected friends, and of course, several mighty battle scenes!
I adore the full novel, Redwall, so seeing it in graphic form was exciting! There is so much more depth to the story that couldn’t be included in this format, but it still managed to fit most everything in there, although it feels a bit rushed.
I wasn’t really a fan of the artwork. Too many teeth. Literally every evil creature was just all teeth and gaping eyeballs. bleh. And I had pictured the good creatures as more cute, not quite so ferocious and homely. After all, they are supposed to be peaceful abbey dwellers, so I imagined them as dignified for the old ones or cute for the younger ones. Oh well.
I would recommend reading this if you’ve already read the novel Redwall, and it’s a lovely revisit to the story!
