Characters in The Paul Reveres

The Paul Reveres is a weird historical war comic set during the American Revolution, where all the historic battles are fought in a Battle of the Bands format, with the American militia represented by one band, The Paul Reveres, while the British are represented by The Union Jack-offs. Occasionally features other re-imaginings, such The Green Mountain Boys as a Boy Band, with Ethan Allen as their manager. Yes, really.

The series follows a pink-haired Paul Revere (yes, THAT Paul Revere), frontman and whiny emo teen, as he confronts the horrors of war, and emotions he doesn't fully understand yet.

Written and illustrated by Tina Pratt. Updates every Monday.

You can read it here on the official website.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • '80s Hair: A number of characters can be described as having very 80's hair.
  • A Flock of Seagulls: How Allen describes Paul's "cool" hair.
  • Alternate History: It's the American Revolution, but with punk rock, electric guitars... and David Bowie references?
  • Anachronism Stew: In spades. Electric guitars, blue mohawks, King George is a David Bowie fanboy, potshots at Anti-Flag...
  • Ascended Extra: Creepy ass Johnny Tremain becomes a cast regular as the comic progresses.
