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

Americans are deeply divided over the Second Amendment. Some passionately assert that the Amendment protects an individual's right to own guns. Others, that it does no more than protect the right of states to maintain militias. Now, in the first and only comprehensive history of this bitter controversy, Saul Cornell proves conclusively that both sides are wrong. Cornell, a leading constitutional historian, shows that the Founders understood the right to bear arms as neither an individual nor a collective right, but as a civic right--an obligation citizens owed to the state to arm themselves so that they could participate in a well regulated militia. He shows how the modern "collective right" view of the Second Amendment, the one federal courts have accepted for over a hundred years, owes more to the Anti-Federalists than the Founders. Likewise, the modern "individual right" view emerged only in the nineteenth century. The modern debate, Cornell reveals, has its roots in the nineteenth century, during America's first and now largely forgotten gun violence crisis, when the earliest gun control laws were passed and the first cases on the right to bear arms came before the courts. Equally important, he describes how the gun control battle took on a new urgency during Reconstruction, when Republicans and Democrats clashed over the meaning of the right to bear arms and its connection to the Fourteenth Amendment. When the Democrats defeated the Republicans, it elevated the "collective rights" theory to preeminence and set the terms for constitutional debate over this issue for the next century. A Well-Regulated Militia not only restores the lost meaning of the original Second Amendment, but it provides a clear historical road map that charts how we have arrived at our current impasse over guns. For anyone interested in understanding the great American gun debate, this is a must read. Winner of the Langum Prize in American Legal History/Legal Biography

This inspiring book, Lawyers, Guns, and Money by Carol X. Vinzant, recounts the heroic efforts of Tom McDermott, a lawyer and victim of the infamous Colin Ferguson rampage on the Long Island Railroad, to take on the gun industry. He is among the leaders of an innovative and promising strategy to circumvent the NRA's political power and courts constrained by interpretations of the Second Amendment. Through civil action he hits the gun companies where it hurts most: the bottom line. Making insurance difficult for manufacturers to get, he has helped reduce the number of cheap hand guns, "Saturday Night Specials," often used in crime. This is a riveting account of tragedy turned into action, and how the law can be used to defend victims rather than enrich corporations.
