Brian Wood's REBELS book one — read the first issue here!

Today marks the publication of Rebels: A Well-Regulated Militia, the first collection of Brian Woods comic about the American revolutionary war that tells "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."

Woods is a prolific and talented comics writer whose groundbreaking DMZ brought him to widespread notice, and who's followed strength with strength in comics like Starve.

Dark Horse were kind enough to give us the whole of the first issue of Rebels to tempt you with. If you like it (and I think you will), Rebels: A Well-Regulated Militia is $19.15 and on sale today.
