The leading team of superhero defenders of the Galactic Union, an interstellar republic of which 24th century Earth is a member. The team that is called in to deal with threats too big for the regular forces of law, order and security to handle. The team that is usually first into the unknown and possibly dangerous corners of the galaxy. The team leading the effort to bring peace, freedom and prosperity to the rest of the galaxy. The team that exemplifies the best, brightest and bravest the GU has to offer. The team called-the Vanguard. The superhero space opera comic for those who enjoy both genres.

The Vanguard has moved! Further chapters are ongoing at the new site at

The Vanguard

Updates Fridays
Page 6 of the Vanguard is up, and we're getting back to the action!

The actions ramps up as promised. Sorry this page is late, but my scanner died and it took me a couple of days to get another one. Some of you may say-"why not dispense with the scanner and just draw on your Wacom tablet?" The answer is, my tablet drawing skills suck hard-I'd basically need to learn to draw all over again to even begin to match the quality I put out now with pencil and ink.

Anyway, I played around a little with the blur effects in Photoshop (see the last panel), and am learning a little more about doing highlights and shadows. Yeah I know I still have a ways to go-but I'm working on it. Let me know what you think. Oh, yeah and I also started off the Cast pages with Thenurion. Check out the entry.

Next Tuesday's (5/16) page-Thenurion intercepts the torpedoes! But will he be able to stop them all?

So what do you think? Let me know in the Message Board
