One of my MAIN points was that Gilly could not deliver the knock out blow while Arm could. Let’s bring in some photo evidence.

Mouse Guard sketch by David Petersen

Is That the Lead Singer From Weezer?

For me, Mouse Guard is what the medium is all about. Visually telling a story. Capturing a feel, a vibe that adds to the understanding of the story.
