First Look: Peter Milligan & Robert Gill Go to War in BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1 – On Sale July 25th!

As first revealed today on The Beat, Valiant is proud to present your first look at BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1, the incendiary opening salvo of an ALL-NEW EPIC SERIES and BLOODSTAINED JUMPING-ON POINT from Peter Milligan (Detective Comics) and Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH)! On July 25thprepare yourselves for a perilous journey into the barbarian age as history’s first detective takes on another challenging case at the crossroads of magic, mystery, and monsters!

The Roman standard – the eagle borne at the front of each Roman legion – was more than just a symbol of the soldiers that carried it… It was a symbol of Rome itself, the ultimate embodiment of the empire’s power…

But now, in the mist-shrouded Germanic forest of Tottenwald, the unthinkable has happened: A rampaging barbarian horde has crushed three of Rome’s most highly skilled detachments in battle… and captured their mighty Roman eagles.

His authority threatened by this all-too-public shame, the mad emperor Nero has dispatched Antonius Axia, the empire’s finest “detectioner” and hero of Britannia, and Achillia, the sword-wielding champion of the gladiatorial arena, to reclaim his stolen relics at any cost.

But what began as a simple mission will soon become a terrifying journey into the dark heart of belief itself as the isolated woodlands of Rome’s enemies reveal unseen dimensions…and the true power of the legion’s lost eagles threatens to consume any who would pursue them…

On July 25th, master storytellers Peter Milligan and Robert Gill dive deep into BRITANNIA: LOST EAGLES OF ROME #1 for an all-new, self-contained entry point into Valiant’s critically acclaimed exploration of the ancient world – featuring covers from Cary Nord (Conan the Barbarian), Brian Thies (Star Wars: Legacy), and David Mack (Kabuki)!

Top of the Stack: Comic Book New Releases 7/18/18

The heat was oppressive. Keri thought about the friction between the tire and the sticky hot asphalt. Tread chewing the thick rocks underneath thousands of pounds of pressure. Her mind drifted to something about diamonds. Cold air spat out occasionally from her...

Assassination Nation red-band trailer is completely crazy!

Every once in a while you come across something so bananas that you just have to stop internet-ing for a bit and watch what just flashed across your screen. Such is the case with the trailer for Assassination Nation, directed by Sam Levinson. I'm not sure what I just...

First trailer for Robin Hood movie staring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx

I like this Taron Egerton kid. He did a great job in the Kingsman films and I think he's got the makings of a fantastic action star. While I was hesitant to get invested in yet another Robin Hood film, it's one of those franchises that can be reinterpreted a million...
