Brian K. Vaughan is a living legend among comic book writers. The list of his work at the Big 2 publishers is renowned as quintessential character crafting – Runaways, Dr. Strange: The Oath, and The Hood: Blood from Stones are stories as important to their cast as any, and it’s the same with his work at DC on titles like Young Justice and Swamp Thing. The writer known simply as BKV, however, is truly known for his work on more independent-esque comics like The Escapists, Pride of Baghdad, Y the Last Man, Ex Machina, and, of course, SAGA. Well, Vaughan has delivered the quality comic consumables we’ve come accustomed to seeing from the author with his latest offering, We Stand On Guard, which is as equally thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
