I cannot say that I’m a huge fan of the Sentient Small Animal Genre. Mouse Guard, Mice Templar, even the great Maus took a bit of getting used to from me in order to even start page one. It’s not that I don’t like talking animals, I’m a huge Disney fan and talking animals were their bread & butter for decades. Many of these comic book depictions of rodents and other small animals did a great job with writing, but completely missed the mark when it came to the artwork. If I’m going to read a book starring mice, squirrels, and other animals, I want them to legitimately look like the mice, squirrels, and other animals they are supposed to be, and not just some low-talent attempt at drawing cartoon beasts. You might as well just put people in your comic and forget the beastly slant.
