So far, my favorite of the new Saturday animated DC shorts has been the Sword of the Atom two-parter. I loved that Mini-Series (and its related Specials) back in the 80's. Gil Kane's art really shined in the tropical setting and there was something very cool about Ray Palmer riding a frog, sword in hand and ready for battle. Mouse Guard continues the tradition of forest animals in epic tales with beautiful artwork, so this felt like it would be a fun combination.
