HUNDRED WORD HIT #55 - BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1-4
Britannia - We Who Are About To Die #1-4 by Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp
The Gods are seemingly unhappy, people are being possessed and the Roman population are restless and ready to riot.
Nero, fearing for his life, places the onus to placate the gods firmly with Rubria, leader of the Vestal Virgins. Antonius Axia back from Britannia is sent to investigate.
What links the unrest to a popular female gladiator and how is the slippery Senator Craxus involved? As things start to unravel it gets personal when Antonius’ son becomes one of the possessed!
Milligan delivers another cracking tale of the world’s first ‘detectioner’ and Ryp’s art is even better this time round.
