Review of We Stand on Guard by Brian K. Vaughan
We Stand On Guard - Brian K. Vaughan,Steve Skroce,Matt Hollingsworth

I read this book as a part of the summer reading program at my high school.  I enjoyed the premise of the book that in the future, the United States invades Canada for its fresh water supply.  The story centers around one particular woman who joins with a group of rebels.  There is a great deal of graphic violence that I didn't think was really necessary, and I thought it moved too quickly to really build interest in most of the characters.  A missed opportunity in my opinion.

Another slower issue
Saga #52 - Brian Vaughan,Fiona Staples

I know a lot of the fandom wants this to just get on with it and find a strong direction, but this feels like real life: sometimes it's just trying to get by, to me.   But it's really fun real life set in another universe and I'm the weirdo who's loving this even as it kind of strings us along. 

 

But I'm okay with being that weirdo because I'm still loving this series, so there's that.

Slower parts
Saga #51 - Brian Vaughan,Fiona Staples

Everyone is trying to figure out what they're going to do: stay, go, or just enjoy the moment?   For all that, tension comes with people stalking Prince Robot IV - yup, still refuse to think of him as anything but a prince, even though he calls him Sir Robot because I liked him more as a Prince, to be honest.  

 

The journalists take the deal that Robot warns them not to, and he's going to get new bodies for him, Petri, and Squire Robot.   Bodies that will hide them from the wrath of things like the Robot Kingdom and those that Prince Robot IV has wronged in the past.   

 

Squire wants to stay with Hazel, but getting the new bodies means going, so there's definitely tension between the small familial groups.

#Readathon. Planned readathon TBR
Saga, Volume 1 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples
Law and Murder (Fright Court) (Volume 2) - Mindy Klasky
A Panicked Premonition - Victoria Laurie

I may be the only one I know who hasn't read Saga yet.

 

Probably some library borrows will change that up.  If I flag, I'll read more stories in some unfinished anthologies.

Paper Girls Volume 1 - Cliff Chiang,Brian K. Vaughan
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I loved this graphic novel. I was hooked from the very start. The characters are awesome, the story is confusing as heck but very intriguing, and the whole idea of the thing is just amazing. It is a science-fiction adventure set in the 1980s. This is basically Stranger Things with more time travel and a diverse cast of paper girls. Another win from Brian K. Vaughan. 

One of the things I think this book did extremely well was show some of the homophobic views of the time, but also address them. Mac's character is very outspoken and says some not-so-nice things such as calling someone an "AIDS patient" or expressing disgust about a boy with a boyfriend. But each time, the other characters call her out for it ("You shouldn't call anyone the other f-word."). This was a good way of showing the views of the characters during the time period without accepting them or leaving them unaddressed. Very well-done.

The characters themselves were phenomenal. I instantly wanted to learn more about them.

Also, the artwork is very cool. It really draws you in. 

Fantastic read. I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be checking out the second book.
