    While I would have liked to have known a bit more about our lead character here, both before being brought in as a soldier and of his career, what we do get is something that likely fits a good number of the fifty-six thousand men that fought in the revolution from the British side. Though a good number served for king and country, tradition and family, a lot ended up there for very different reasons and not all that willingly in the end. Brian Wood delivers a properly somber and haunting ending here which Jones and Bellaire bring to life in a way few series really manage to achieve. Every installment of this series was fantastic and the upcoming full collection of it later this year really is a must-own piece of work that I cannot recommend enough. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith Jan 13, 2016

    It is this last scene that really lingered with me, I thought that Wood's series was hit or miss, but at its best it was a poignant commentary on war, and an intelligent reflection on the founding of our country. A few single issues fell flat, but overall it's a good read, especially for those historical fiction buffs. It definitely achieved its goal of being about the little guy, without any use of Washington or other colonial heroes this was a comic for the people. Wood's ability to subtly comment on war while still allowing his story room to breathe is one of his strongest points. Ultimately this ten issue run showcases sorrow, pain, and loss through voices that are not commonly heard in history or in comics for that matter. And for that alone this comic is a victory.
