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
Issue #2 of the Vanguard begins! The Vanguard pursue the slavers and two of their members fight the slaver ships in open space. The cover page shows the two in action...

I'm back from vacation (a nice Carnival cruise in the Caribbean, btw) and here's the cover page for Issue #2 of the Vanguard. In this chapter, the team pursues the slavers who are kidnapping colonists. The action to come includes two Vanguard members battling the slavers in space, and the cover shows those two members in action.

I'm putting more time and attention into the artwork now, correcting mistakes made while inking, doing more shading and putting more time into coloring. Let me know what you think.

UPDATE: There will be no more new pages this week, due to life issues getting in the way. The next page will be up on Wednesday 9/13. Until then, enjoy the new cover page and maybe read this chapter over again from the beginning, especially if you're new here. See you next week!
