In the best tradition of the post-apocalyptic movement and movie classics like The Road Warrior and Escape from New York, Rebel captures the raw essence of the period in its own right. Pepe Moreno’s style and aggressive, surgical approach to social commentary shook the world of graphic novels in its infancy. The message of his work still rings true. The combination of powerful story line and intuitive use of color continues to inspire generations of readers.
Welcome to the future that never was. After a devastating civil war, society as we knew it has ceased to exist. There are no “superpowers,” and there are no superheroes either. Things are simple. Everything is lethal. There are no cell phones, no Internet, and there’s no 911. To survive you need guns and you must have wheels. Speed, armor-protection and firepower is the new balance of power. It’s the law of the jungle. It is raw, it is dangerous, and it is out of control… and for some is just plain fun.
