Britannia #1 – The World’s First Detective Challenges Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp in September!
On the fringes of civilization, the world’s first detective is about to make an unholy discovery…
Valiant has released a first fully lettered look inside Britannia #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the all-new, prestige-format limited series from comics master Peter Milligan and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp! On September 21st, “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” continues here as Antonius Axia, the ancient world’s first detective, takes a psychological journey into terror, temptation, and bloodshed that could destroy not only his humanity, but the very empire he has sworn to uphold…
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…
