We Stand Our Guard Recruits Readers


While Saga might be the belle of the comics ball right now, Brian K. Vaughan does manage to find time to work on other projects. One such project is We Stand Our Guard with Steve Skroce--a project which has been sent back to a second printing by Image Comics. We Stand Our Guard #1 second printing will hit stores October 7 (alongside We Stand Our Guard #4).

“The fact that a comic book about Canadian freedom fighters could sell out of more than 90K copies (with zero variant covers!) is a testament to Image, our heroic retailing partners, and most importantly Steve Skroce and the international team of superstars we're lucky enough to have as collaborators. Thanks so much to all the readers out there for supporting new creator-owned work. And if you haven’t checked out our epic miniseries yet, we’re not planning to collect the story anytime soon, so this new printing of #1 is the ideal way to get caught up on the Two-Four’s bloody campaign,” said Vaughan.

We Stand Our Guard #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms. We Stand Our Guard #1 second printing (Diamond Code AUG158130) has a final order cutoff deadline for retailers is September 14th. We Stand Our Guard #2 (Diamond Code JUN150510) and We Stand Our Guard #3 (Diamond Code JUL150548). We Stand On Guard #4(Diamond Code AUG150498) has a final order cutoff deadline for retailers is September 14th.

Comic Book Resources raves, “We Stand on Guard #1 looks fantastic… [it’s] had high expectations tied into its very DNA and, overall, I think readers will be very pleased with what they find.” ComicList says, “We Stand On Guard has all the makings of a classic series.”

In WE STAND ON GUARD #1, it’s 100 years from now and a heroic band of Canadian civilians must defend their homeland from invasion… by the United States of America! The hyper-detailed combat between badass freedom fighters and giant f***ing robots begins in this spectacular 40-page first issue.
