Collecting all six issues of the controversial hit miniseries.

thought

We Stand on Guard is as unique as Brian’s other graphic novels. Taking place in the future, where Canada and the US are engaged in war, a band of rebels decide to stand against them. Amber is our main character and I just love her right away. There’s a bit of backstory, lots of action and violence right off the bat and some politics thrown in.

I love the visuals and the plot and all of the characters already. I just am kicking myself for starting this series right when it came out. I usually push through graphic novels rather quickly. Now I’ll have to wait and wait. *sadface*

Verdict:

For fans of sci-fi action and graphic novels, you must read this one.
