  • Ashley_was_here123

    Well I thought the comic was very interesting. My favorite was when they were at war and the mouse thingy said that he forgot to sign some papers and to take him back home. Also at the end of the comic when he said "hey you cant leave me here! Ive got more adventures next month!" So yeah that is what I thought about this story. I hope they make another one very soon -Ashley_was_here123
