    Naturally, I still find fault on the non-existing English translations of the Quebec-French dialogues uttered by LePage, though slowly and surely, I could comprehend the character's words. But the rest of the issue is one of the best yet. And finally, this fourth chapter illuminates the growing discords from within the imperialist's backyard while primarily highlighting Skroce's greatest artworks so far (and hopefully up to the next issues). It can be argued that this chapter showcases Skroce's re-emergence as one of the comic industry's top artists right now. Of course, Vaughan's scripts and some one-liners dialogues complement so well to the artist's magnificent illustrations. Once again, GO CANADA!!!! Read Full Review

    We Stand On Guard #4 is another fast-paced issue with a flashback that gives us a glimpse into Amber and Tommy's childhoods as refugees, followed by frantic action in the present day. Read Full Review

    Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But maybe that's not my fault. Maybe the consistently perfect art has receded into the background to let my mind wander. Pair that with an issue that just kind of goes with the motions, my mind is allowed to wander evenfurther. This, of course, is not theend of WE STAND ON GUARD's quality–not even close, but it needs to shake things up. I'm not even sure I care about Amber (our supposed protganist) yet, and everyone else is dying so quickly that we're not really given a chance to like them. I've never thought about it before, but WE STAND ON GUARD #4 makes me wonder if this title doesn't really have much to say or do, and is potentially just a showcase of what itsteam can do. They're all some of the best in the business, and I really hope they aren't let down. Read Full Review

    It's good stuff, and well worth reading, but as the six issue mini series is starting to wind to a close, thisissue is not a good jumping on point; if you're not readingWe Stand On Guard by now, then you should start at the beginning. However that being said, whether you wait for the trade or pick up the individual issues, this is a series that you simply must read. Read Full Review

    So go ahead, pick up this issue. If your weekly budget allows only for so many, I strong urge you to think twice on other ones and maybe let them take the dive so you can enjoy a double dose of Brian K. Vaughan this week. It'll be worth it, I promise. Read Full Review

    The cover promised something that wasn't delivered and I think that pissed me off more than anything. I wanted robot wolf vs the real deal dammit. That cover is one of the coolest of the year and it wound up being the best part of this issue. We Stand on Guard is winding down with only two issues remaining and I'm not so sure all the questions have enough time to be answered in regards to the backstory of the USA vs Canada cause of war. It's going to be one helluva finale regardless of that however and I'm looking forward to it. Death to America! I take that back…. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 8, 2015

    Now past the half way point of its run, We Stand On Guard #4 rumbles to life much like the giant machinery the Two-Four seek to use against their Yankee foes. Unfortunately, no amount of forward momentum or fantastic art can make up for the continuing lack of interest we have in the characters or their plight. Read Full Review
