Ambush Bug here. Here’s a preview to the Dark Horse Comics’ new creator owned comic series REBELS! I could try to explain what the book’s about, but I think writer Brian Wood can do that much more capably. Here’s what Mr. Wood has to say about his new comic!
REBELS is a ground level look at this momentous time in American history, the struggle for independence and the birth of a brand new kind of nation. We follow a young married couple, Seth and Mercy Abbott, as they navigate the insurgency and the battles as well as the struggles on the homefront. Its through their eyes that we see a different side of this story, and I think its made all the richer for it!
Thanks, Brian. The book sports some kick ass realistic art by Andrea Mutti and is officially described as;
In a rush of great public resistance to an oppressive and excessive government, a homegrown militia movement is formed in rural America. This is not 2015, but 1775. With the war for independence playing out across the colonies, young Seth and Mercy Abbott find their new marriage tested at every turn, as the demands of the frontlines and the home front collide.
REBELS #1 will be available from Dark Horse Comics in April and can be ordered in this month’s Diamond Previews! Check out these choice pages from the book below!
