Friday Feature – Dan Butcher and Vanguard

Hello there! My name is Dan and I’ve been kindly asked by Susie to write a guest post for Perrywinkle… and I did. It’s what you’re reading now. Heh.

If you didn’t know, I create the superhero comic VANGUARD.

What’s Vanguard?

Set predominately in the UK, Vanguard is the story of a team of genetically enhanced meta-humans employed by the British government to protect the nation’s interests, at home and abroad. It is set in the not too distant future, where the world is becoming more politically and economically unstable. There are food riots, water and power shortages and a rising crime rate as day to day living becomes more of a struggle.

What starts as a simple rescue mission reveals a new, terrifying threat – An unseen enemy, with a vast array of terrible weapons and access to seemingly unlimited resources.

Can our heroes uncover who they are and stop their diabolical machinations before the world is plunged into chaos?

There are currently 12 issues of Vanguard, all of which are free to read at
