SAGA writer BRIAN K. VAUGHAN teams with artistic legend and Hollywood storyboard artist STEVE SKROCE for a subversive, action-packed military thriller. Set 100 years in our future, WE STAND ON GUARD follows a heroic band of Canadian civilians turned freedom fighters who must defend their homeland from invasion by a technologically superior opponent...the United States of America. Collecting all six issues of the controversial hit miniseries.
We Stand On Guard was an interesting and thought provoking read, especially considering the current political climate. Don’t expect a happy ending from this one and there are some very gruesome bits but the story is worth it. It highlights the bravery and determination of Canadians and shows that if you push us, we will push back. We may have the reputation of being nice guys but we can put up a hell of a fight when necessary.
I give We Stand On Guard 5 stars and if you see this at your local book store, it is a great graphic novel to pick up! I sincerely hope there will be more of these made in the future.
