Co-created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Steve Skroce, the Image Comics series We Stand on Guard imagines the U.S. military’s invasion of Canada one hundred years in the future. The premise of the science fiction comic may seem shocking or absurd; Canada and the United States are strong allies and the possibility of the two nations ever going to war seems unlikely. However, there is a history of military conflicts between the two countries, and in the 20th Century both Canada and the United States developed secret plans to invade the other.
In preparation for this week’s debut of We Stand on Guard, Nothing But Comics reviews the history of military conflicts between the United States and Canada.

“That was fucking everything”
In the first episode of True Detectives thisseason, the reaction was mixed from critics who pointed out problematic aspects of the series return. My reaction was a little more positive but that was from more of a wait and see approach to the series. While I didn’t think the first episode was bad per say, it wasn’t the best we’ve seen from the show by any means. In this seasons second episode, writer/show runner Nic Pizzolatto get’s his swagger back, the new actors mostly live up to expectations and Justin Lin justifies his place on the show with a strong visual narrative and direction.

By Michael Moreci & Ron Salas
Transference opens with what appears to be an overly familiar narrative sequence. Three espionage agents are driving through France. They are searching for an enigmatic terrorist named Fasad. Team leader Colton is weary of this mission, though. They have no intel on Fasad, while he seems to know way too much about them. This is not how it normally works. Something is askew. So far, so good. We have all seen this type of story play out in one form or another before. Suddenly, though, a commuter train explodes into flames, and Agent Jordon is shouting warnings about preserving the time line. Colton and associates are no longer standard issue spies.
After this prologue, the story flashes back to the present. Moreci gives readers a taste of how Colton normally operates. He has been charged with making sure that an entitled rich man allows his wife to leave him. See, she wishes to pursue her own life, become a heart surgeon, a heart surgeon which one day will save the life of a very important patient. That individual’s life cannot be put in jeopardy. In such a way, Moreci introduces into his story issues of causality, along with questions of destiny. These quandaries only become more pronounced as the narrative continues to unfold.
