This is 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 front lines and the home front collide. Rebels details the epic story of the colonists, explorers and traders, wives and daughters, farmers and volunteer soldiers who, in a few short, turbulent years, created the brand-new nation of America.


Rebels is a rare treat in the world of comic books today…. The book offers a great start to a more intimate story of our country’s founding, and is something that speaks a lot of truths about the state of our nation then and now.

One of Wood’s biggest strengths is creating rich, believable characters with clear voices and “Rebels” is no different. Though it’s set against the backdrop of the American Revolution, Wood and Mutti’s “Rebels” is about basic human rights and the freedom to grow into a person or a country on one’s own time.
