Comic Book Review: We Stand On Guard #6 - Image Comics (2015)

Written by Brian K. Vaughan

The final issue in the series.  Amber is on board an American ship with explosives strapped to her body and holding a detonator.  "The American" attempts to negotiate with Amber to prevent anything explosive happening.  Outside, the Canadian resistance movement continues to keep the Americans at bay.

I was saddened to find out that the sixth issue of We Stand On Guard would be the final issue.  I don't know if this was the original plan as the comic book felt very rushed.  I feel there was more to be told and the end felt very abrupt.

All in all I did enjoy the series and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys comics that are violent and even a bit humorous.  The characters were likable and their enemies were the type you could really dislike, even if though they were, in their minds, doing their jobs.

At only $2.99 per issue, We Stand On Guard is not an expensive collection to put together and you wouldn't have to wait for the trade paperback.  I have a feeling that when the trade comes out, people will buy it and wonder why this book wasn't given a larger issue run.  Perhaps it was truly by design.  I will say this, purchasing the actual comic books is how the writers and artists keep their jobs.  By the time trades come out, the book could already be done.

Okay, I'll stop preaching about being good consumers.  I hope you enjoyed the review.  Please let us know in the comments below how you think we are doing.  Also let us know if there are other titles would like us to read and review.
