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
More big explosions as Thenurion continues his battle with the mysterious ship that has attacked without provocation. Did they really get him this time?

More big explosions on this page. I do so love the lens flare filter in Photoshop, you can do such interesting things with it.

Yes, that first panel is depicting multiple torpedoes going off at once. Again, I chose not to do the mushroom cloud because I think the bright light of the initial phase of the explosions is cooler. Once again, feel free to let me know what you think.

I'm getting back on schedule. Next page should be up by Thurday 6/1.

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