    Word Of The Nerd - Christopher Calloway Dec 9, 2015

    Issue #10 will be the last ofthe series. The final issue will be told from yet another perspective, that of a loyal British solider. If past issues are any indication, I would expect nothing less than some of Wood's best work of his career. If you have not given Rebels a chance, issue #9 is a great issue to pick-up, you need not be familiar with any of the previous issue in the series to enjoy it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 9, 2015

    The standalone tale here works in a number of ways and it really tickles my history-loving self in a good way. It's fiction to be sure, but based on how events at the time played out and it really makes me wish history was taught in this manner because I know I would have been a lot more engaged when I was younger in humanizing it instead of just memorizing dates, battles, and names. Wood delivers a solid story within the small confines and really humanizes it, but it's Mutti that takes it to the next level and makes you feel real empathy and compassion for all involved. The artwork is lush in its own distinctive way and continues to be perfectly suited to the material, giving it a life and a presence that a lot of other artists would not be able to convey properly. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith Dec 9, 2015

    Wood has a great thing going here, and the anthology style works perfectly for his ideas. This issue (as far as I know) was a one-shot and works as a vignette into the ideologies behind the French and Indian War. Each story is primarily driven by internal narration from the protagonist of each story, it allows for Wood to teach us history with a personal twist. Although these stories are fiction, they are undoubtedly based in reality, giving off a true feeling of loss, love, fear, sadness, and hope. War is brutal, but sometimes we forget that one of our countries largest conflicts was more than just Washington crossing the Delaware, or the signing of the Declaration. It was ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and those things should never be forgotten. Read Full Review
