WE STAND ON GUARD keeps recruiting readers
September 10, 2015
The first issue of the political science-fiction series flies off shelves, goes straight to second printing
New York Times bestselling and multiple Eisner-award winning writer Brian K. Vaughan (SAGA, PAPER GIRLS, PRIVATE EYE) and legendary storyboard artist Steve Skroce’s WE STAND ON GUARD’s action-packed military thriller about a future where a heroic band of Canadian civilians must defend their homeland from invasion launched to critical acclaim this summer and has been rushed to a second printing in order to meet customer demand.
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.
“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 ON GUARD #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
