As announced during VALIANTSUMMIT 2016 we now get our first look at BRITANNIA 1 of 4
On the fringes of civilization, the world’s first detective is about to make an unholy discovery…
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside BRITANNIA #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, Valiant Prestige format series coming this September from master storyteller Peter Milligan (X-Statix,Detective Comics) and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK, Clone)! First revealed at#ValiantSummit 2016 live from New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, THE FUTURE OF VALIANT – Valiant’s new slate of must-read titles for 2016 and beyond – continues here as a decorated legionnaire-turned-investigator ventures from the height of civilization and into the ancient pagan lands of BRITANNIA to seek out the dark monstrosities that lurk beyond the bounds of Rome’s bloodied empire…
Ruled by the Fates. Manipulated by the Gods. Commanded by Caesar. In the year 65 A.D., one’s destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…
“Since reading I, Claudius by Robert Graves as a teenager, I’ve been fascinated by the Roman world, and how that world affected these British Isles, pretty much obliterating the ancient Druid religion that had long existed until then,” writer Peter Milligan told The A.V. Club. “With the idea of Antonius Axia, I had a way into this story that had been waiting for me to write for some time.”
