Dead Romans is a tragic love story, set in the worst defeat the Roman Empire ever suffered

Dead Romans is an all-new six-issue swords-and-sandals series from Image Comics’ Shadowline imprint. Written by Fred Kennedy, with art by Nick Marinkovich, colors by José Villarrubia and letters by Andrew Thomas, readers will follow the harrowing events in the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, the most decisive loss in Roman military history—and the victory that reshapes the people of Germania. 

Arminius has fought for Rome long enough. He is a German by birth, and now that he serves as advisor to the Roman governor of Germania, he sees firsthand the cruelty Rome has inflicted on his people. So he hatches a plan to unite the Germanic tribes, confront Rome’s army in a carefully planned attack, and reclaim Germania for its people.

But Arminius’s plan is complicated by Honoria, the woman he loves. She serves the Roman governor; she is faithful and loyal to Rome. For Arminius’s victory to have any meaning, she must accept his actions and remain at his side as his queen. But when the fighting starts, will she choose love over empire?

With four different variant covers by artists including Nick MarinkovichAdam Gorham, and Cary Nord, as well as a limited print sketch cover.
