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 frontlines and the home front collide. Not merely rehashing the tales of the most famous men of the time, 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. With the American Revolution in the national zeitgeist, creators Brian Wood (The Massive, DMZ, Northlanders) and Andrea Mutti (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Avengers) deliver a gripping piece of historical fiction with Rebels. Praise for the series: "Thrilling.... A comic with heart."--COMIC BEAT "Rebels is a great & beautiful book! Read issue 1 & can't wait for the next one!" Matt Kindt, MIND MGMT A "fresh take on a familiar historical era."-- LOS ANGELES TIMES/ HERO COMPLEX "The New World comes to life in a way you've never see in it before. A comic."--MAN CAVE DAILY "Like nothing you read in your school textbooks."--NEWSARAMA "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."--THE NERDIST "In Rebels, Wood focuses on the politics behind the war and the roiling discontent of the British colonists that eventually boiled over into eight years of bloody conflict.... [Wood and c-creator Mutti] have produced a historical drama that's straightforward and easy to follow, but that doesn't shy away from exploring stickier issues like class divides, the role of women in the colonies, and the complex distinction between friend and foe."--VULTURE "Poignant and so incredibly powerful."--POPMATTERS "One of Wood's biggest strengths is creating rich, believable characters with clear voices and "Rebels" is no different.... Andrea Mutti delivers fast-paced action and panels full of emoting, active characters with spot-on design work... 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."--COMIC BOOK RESOURCES "An epic historical fiction that embodies the spirit of the American revolution like no other comic, has before. Wood has a proven track record for telling pulse pounding emotional stories."--BLOODY DISGUSTING "You'll definitely want to check out ... [Wood's] latest creator-owned series. Rebels focuses on the many sides of the Revolutionary War conflict. [and] given Wood's track record with historical and politically-charged comics, we're expecting another winner."--IGN "The art really steals the show in Rebels. Andrea Mutti's attention to detail and character design perfectly captured the 1770's and the colonies. He was able to display his diverse talent by drawing serene forests of New Hampshire to the intense scenes of violence in the courthouse. Jordie Bellaire's colors are, naturally, beautiful and push the art to a different level."-COMICOSITY "Fascinating."-COMICVINE "Rebels" #1 is a historical comic telling a story much different than what most publishers are producing. It is an exciting look back at a different time and an overlooked chapter in the American Revolution. History buffs will enjoy the story with its references to the overall big picture of the revolution. But the humanity of Seth Abbott and his family and friends give the story significance in how it affects everyday life."--EXAMINER "The detailed and historically accurate artwork of Andrea Mutti (with the reliably rich coloring work from Jordie Bellaire) that really brings this to life."--MENTAL FLOSS "Captivating."--UNLEASH THE FANBOY "Excellent."-FLICKERING MYTH "Andrea Mutti does a fantastic job of showcasing how bristly, dirty and violent fighting for freedom can be."-BLOODY DISGUSTING "Very highly recommended."-Si Spurrier "Brian Wood may be the best history teacher you never had."--PASTE MAGAZINE "Absolutely entertaining, and thought-provoking. In today's world where we're still debating liberty and tyranny, Rebels is yet another timely relevant comic, much like .... Demo, Channel Zero, Mara, The New York Four, DMZ, and more."--GRAPHIC POLICY ""A welcome breath of fresh air. Rebels #1 is that rare comic book that makes historical fiction come alive."--FREAK SUGAR "Engrossing, enlightening and entertaining."--TECH TIMES "I'm looking forward to it."--FANBOY COMICS "A masterful recreation of America in the 18th century. Mutti has beautifully constructed historical Vermont with verdant forests, large farms, and serene towns that capture the ruralness of American culture at the time. His careful attention to clothing and weaponry shows an understanding of the era while Jordie Bellaire's (Everything) coloring brings the rustic feel of the century to life..... Even without Wood's dialogue the art is able to take readers back in time and give them a sense of the political tensions of the period."--GEEK CHIC LITE "An action packed and dynamic first issue that sucks you in and doesn't let go. If this issue is any indicator then "Rebels" is going to be a very special and memorable series."--GEEKED OUT NATION

This is the first book to examine and compare how rebels govern civilians during civil wars in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Drawing from a variety of disciplinary traditions, including political science, sociology, and anthropology, the book provides in-depth case studies of specific conflicts as well as comparative studies of multiple conflicts. Among other themes, the book examines why and how some rebels establish both structures and practices of rule, the role of ideology, cultural, and material factors affecting rebel governance strategies, the impact of governance on the rebel/civilian relationship, civilian responses to rebel rule, the comparison between modes of state and non-state governance to rebel attempts to establish political order, the political economy of rebel governance, and the decline and demise of rebel governance attempts.

New Meadow Plantation, His Majesty’s Connecticut Colonies, 1643. In a walled English village crouched at the edge of a North American wilderness believed to be inhabited by monsters and devil-worshipping savages, Will Poole has a different way of thinking. He finds everything about his home confining and longs for the freedom of the untracked forest. While hunting a black she-wolf that has been raiding the plantation’s flocks, he encounters Squamiset, an English-speaking native who has a profound impact on his life. Will is reprimanded by John E. Rockingham, the formidable Governor of the plantation, for fraternizing with heathens. Ignoring the Governor’s warning, Will is caught and imprisoned along with a childhood friend accused of murder. When Squamiset rescues them and the three renegades flee Rockingham’s wrath, Will’s life takes a radical turn as he discovers that his fate is linked with the native people and his destiny is intertwined with the mystical spirits of the New World. Will Poole’s Island is a tale of friendship, adventure, mystery, and wonder in which a young man discovers that he is destined for more than the narrow existence his culture and upbringing led him to expect.

At a time of renewed debate over guns in America, what does the Second Amendment mean? This book looks at history to provide some surprising, illuminating answers. The Amendment was written to calm public fear that the new national government would crush the state militias made up of all (white) adult men -- who were required to own a gun to serve. Waldman recounts the raucous public debate that has surrounded the amendment from its inception to the present. As the country spread to the Western frontier, violence spread too. But through it all, gun control was abundant. In the 20th century, with Prohibition and gangsterism, the first federal control laws were passed. On all four occasions, the Supreme Court ruled against a constitutional right to own a gun. The present debate picked up in the 1970s -- part of a backlash to the liberal 1960s and a resurgence of libertarianism. A newly radicalized NRA entered the campaign to oppose gun control and elevate the status of an obscure constitutional provision. In 2008, in a case that reached the Court after a focused drive by conservative lawyers, the US Supreme Court ruled for the first time that the Constitution protects an individual right to gun ownership. Famous for his theory of "originalism," Justice Antonin Scalia twisted it in this instance to base his argument on contemporary conditions. Waldman shows that our view of the amendment is set, at each stage, not by a pristine constitutional text, but by the push and pull, the rough and tumble of political advocacy and public agitation.
