What do you get when you have an Imperial Investigator—an ancient Roman version of Sherlock Holmes—dispatched to a faraway outpost in the Roman empire in the 4th decade AD? How about Britannia #1, an original best seller from Valiant Entertainment based out of New York. That detective’s name is Antonius Axia and his purpose is to uncover the strange happenings in the far-off Imperial colony of Britannia. In this tale reminiscent of the ancient myth of Beowulf, intrigue and suspense reign supreme as Peter Milligan creates this vivid rendition and Juan José Rype’s artwork fills in what gaps remain. Each telling of this fairy tale conveys why this story has spurred imagination from time immemorial and will likely continue to do so until the end of time.
