Who’s interested in a special preview of the upcoming comic book Rebels from Dark Horse Comics? Well, we have a special preview for Rebels #1, the upcoming series by writer Brian Wood, with art by Andrea Mutti, colors by Jordie Bellaire and a cover by Tula Lotay.
Check out the 12-page preview here below, along with the book trailer
Here’s the official description of the series:
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.
Writer: Brian Wood
Artist: Andrea Mutti
Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
Cover Artist: Tula Lotay
Wood has described Rebels as being in the spirit of his Viking series Northlanders, although it might not be quite as totally brutal as Northlanders was at times. It also sounds like Rebels is not going to shy away from modern political issues in the same way that Wood’s series DMZ did.
Rebels #1 is out on April 8, 2015. You still have a bit of time to get to your local comic book store and order a copy if you’re interested. Check out the preview pages below and let us know if you’re thinking about buying Rebels.
