Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Seth Warner runs afoul of John Adams, who is reluctant to support the militia.

    Similar to the first series, I cannot recommend this property enough. Dramatizing historical events is nothing new but when it come to American history we seem to be stuck on certain eras and people as opposed to telling the wider, richer, and engaging stories that exist out there because there's no perceived interest. But until you put it out there and showcase the drama, intrigue, and the larger than life personalities nobody will know that there is an interest. Brian Wood's work here has been fantastic from start to finish and I wish it was getting far more attention, not just from readers, but from developers of film and TV projects because I want this to spring to life with even more intensity and richness. But, until then, we have this series and all the treasures that it offers, including this installment with some gorgeous artwork from Joan Urgell that has me looking for more of their projects.

    Rebels: These Free and Independent States #8 is a good read. If youre into comic book depictions of lesser-known parts of American history, Rebels #8 is definitely worth your time. If you need an injection of patriotism into your eyeballs, this will give it to you, and I do recommend it. Read Full Review
