Graphic Spotlight: Britannia

Behold, the world’s first detective is on a case that threatens his very soul…unless he can defy the lore of the gods!

I’m cheating here, a little. Did it come out this week? No. BUT there’s a newer must-read in town and it’s my duty to make sure you know about it. I present to you, dear readers, Britannia from Valiant Entertainment.

Do you love the snarky and dark adventures of anti-heroes like John Constanine? Are you addicted to the political and fantastical drama of Game of Thrones? Do you want a great read for just $9.99 that’ll blow your mind with gorgeous art and smart characters? Then you’ve no excuse not to pick up the tale of Antonius Axia.

In 65 A.D., everything was considered the “will of the Gods.” Rome is at the peak of Nero’s reign. You owned nothing and nothing about you was considered your own. In this time, Antonius Axia serves for the glory of the Roman Empire as one of its veteran soldiers. After an experience that nearly ends his life, Antonius finds himself on the outskirts of Rome when he’s summoned by Caesar himself. He’s to be sent to one of the edges of the known world and investigate reports of abnormal and potentially monstrous events. Now, the world’s first detective will be thrust into a situation where belief and proof collide, where the most basic truths about existence as he’s known it will be challenged, and the lives of everyone on the journey are at stake.

Peter Milligan (Justice League Dark, Hellblazer) brings his comics genius to a world where the power of gods and the prowess of men will be shifted. This terrific tale of terror and temptation jumps off  the page by powerhouse artist Juan Jose Ryp (Clone, Wolverine: The Best There Is). Follow them down this disturbing and fascinating path as they craft a story that will scratch all the darker itches on your pull list.

Collecting BRITANNIA #1-4.

Supernatural is a television show on the CW television network which regularly airs on Thursday nights at 9:00 pm. Supernatural is about a pair of monster hunting brothers trying to stave off the apocalypse by drinking beer, playing classic rock and kicking a little monster ass.

Sam, the tall, brooding brother resented the lifestyle of monster hunting he grew up in and had run off to college to become a lawyer. Dean, the scrappier and older brother had always followed in his father’s footsteps out of loyalty and resented his brother for this perceived betrayal. Continue reading
