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
Cover page for The Vanguard, a superhero space opera adventure. If you like superhero teams and sci-fi space adventures, try this one. Next update on Monday, 4/24.

Welcome to the first issue of The Vanguard, a superhero space opera series chronicling the adventures of a super-team fighting the good fight against evil ranging from repressive interstellar empires, cosmic-level threats able to destroy worlds or galaxies, even crimelords and pirate kings.

I'm departing from normal superhero protocol and not using code names for my group. They use their actual names, and have no secret identities. From left to right, they are Mekri, Sapphira, Thenurion, Franklys, and Cerena. The big grey thing is their starship, the Stellar Vanguard.

No, these aren't normal human names, and that's because the five leading members of the Vanguard are neither normal nor human. I'll explain more on this as the story goes on.

I'm not entirely happy with the art. I wanted to do more shading and highlights on the characters, and the ship art can clearly be improved. But I also wanted to put this page up by Friday, so had to let some things slide. Still, email me and let me know what you think so far.

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