Synopsis:

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…

Sounds like an amazing intense ride, maybe he will give Batman a run for his money! Also, interesting tidbit, did you know that Milligan and Ryp actually explored text from Dr. KarnKaiber Hersch, Associate Professor of Greek  and Roman Classics at Temple University? So they actually took the time to research in order to capture the essence of  Roman…now that is dedication!
 
Britannia is sure to breathe new life into an old tale of mystery and maybe even a fight in a lion bit? We will never know. But while we are at at…
