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

Discussion of the living space of most citizens of the Galactic Union, and a homage to one of my favorite sci-fi book series.

This is a homage to one of my favorite sci-fi book series, The Culture by Iain M. Banks. The Ring Orbitals and Worldships on this page are derived from Culture Orbitals and GSV's (General Service Vehicles) which are two of the main living spaces for Culture citizens. I liked those concepts so much I decided to borrow them for my little serial adventure.

Hopefully Mr. Banks (if he ever hears about this) will consider this the homage that it is...

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