“You may already know that some of us here at NBC! love the work of Brandon Graham. With8House: Arclight, Marion Churchland joins Graham to tell the first story in a series of comics taking place in the same fantastical world. If you enjoy fantasy and adventure stories, you should give this book a try. Full of gorgeous artwork, mysterious characters, and magical beings; from the creative mind behind the reimagined Prophet, 8House: Arclight deserves place on your pull list.”
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.
