Following the success of VANGUARD Book Two, which launched at True Believers Comic Con ‘18, Dan Butcher returns in 2020 to launch Book Three. The book is 196 pages long and boasts work by comic book creators Martin Simpson (The Needleman) and Steven Stahlberg (World of Blue).

They tried. They died. 

Now, 15 years after defeat, in a world governed by merciless corporate tyranny, a new band of very different heroes arises to take up the fight. 

This book collects the complete issues 10-14 of the webcomic Vanguard, previously published on
