We Stand On Guard is a science fiction comics series written by Brian K. Vaughan, with art by Steve Skroce and colouring by Matt Hollingsworth. The first issue, a large 44 page book, was published by Image Comics in July 2015.[1]

The series is set in Canada in the year 2112, in a time when it has been invaded by its neighbour the United States of America. The story centres on a band of resistance fighters in the seemingly vanquished Canada, and their exploits involving skirmishes with the American army and its vast supply of mechanised weapons, including giant robots.[2][3][4]

We Stand On Guard consists of six issues and is a creator-owned work.


CBC News reviewer Eli Glasner's positive review said the work was more "direct and visually explosive" than any prior comic book treatment of Canada-U.S. relations.[3] Paste called it "intriguing, emotional and engaging enough to stand alone as a story".[5] The collected edition earned a spot on The New York Times hardcover graphic books bestseller list.[6]
