Seth Abbott started off a young, idealistic woodsman, but as the War of Independence draws to an end, it's a battle-hardened man that returns home to his wife. But is it that simple to lay down the rifle and return to the way things were?
Rebels first arc comes to an end in a way that is both gripping as well as touching, with Seth finally getting a sense of closure as he plans his future. This character depth and the narrative around it makes this tale so much more enticing, and if the series continues to be as good as this in the future, I'm sure we'll get many more mesmerizing stories.

Rebels finishes up here with Seth's main story and we get two standalone issues ahead of us – one of which will have another short story for Seth in it that takes place during the war. This arc has been a fantastic read through and through with the narration, the dialogue itself and the kind of cuts between time to give us a big picture view but humanized enough. A lot of that humanizing comes from Andrea Mutti's artwork though as he made this series something more. I'm a fan of Brian Wood's work to be sure, but Mutti has infused this with such a sense of place and time, a rawness and earthiness, that I felt very in the moment throughout it. His character designs along took it to another level and just made it feel authentic with expressions, especially when it comes to Seth. I'm eagerly looking forward to what's to come next in the series as a whole but it's going to be interesting to see if they can match or top this arc for me with the team ahead. Read Full Review
