Freedom No. 1 is the Xeric award winning first issue of an ongoing series. This first chapter tells the story of Adam Farr, a strong-willed teenager living in Massachusetts two years after the Americans lost the Revolutionary War. Sent to serve as an apprentice of a tory merchant in Boston, he quickly finds himself at odds with his older brother, the British Army and the Sons of Liberty. Ultimately, his fate takes a drastic turn when the conflict between the British and the revolutionaries completely engulfs him.
A mythical deconstruction of the people and events that shaped the United States, Freedom is the story of the American people -the patriots, the slaves, the loyalists- all fighting for their very different, often antithetical ideas of what freedom means.
