Mysteries in the Old Empire
Valiant is proud to present your first look at BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #2 (of 4) – the second thrilling installment in a brand-new adventure for another exciting limited series set in the world of BRITANNIA! On August 22nd, revered writer Peter Milligan (Detective Comics) and incredible artist Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH) unleash the detectioner known as Antonius Axia into another unforgettable dive into the depths of the ancient world!
“Antonius’ investigations take him far from the dark forests of Germany to the more eastern edge of the empire,” writer Peter Milligan told All-Comic. “A place much older than Rome, a place of magic and curses. I’m intrigued by how wide Rome’s empire was, how it embraced so many different peoples, and this latest storyline explores some of that.”
The mystery of the Roman Empire’s missing relics deepens into a deadly new case for Antonius Axia, history’s first detective and the ancient world’s sole possessor of the secrets of deduction and psychology. Now, Axia is on the hunt to recover the empire’s treasure by any means…and the trail is about to lead him directly into the mystical kingdom of Egypt!
On August 22nd, superstar storytellers Peter Milligan and Robert Gill wade into a world of secrets, soldiers, and sphinxes when BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #2 storms into local comic shops everywhere – featuring covers by Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), Sija Hong (NINJAK), and Kano (QUANTUM AND WOODY!, Daredevil)!
