Comic, Fiction: Britannia (2016, Valiant Comics, #1-#4)

Britannia - a limited run, full color comic with 4 issues, follows a short period of time in the life of Antonia Axia, a "detectioner" - Rome's first detective.

The story combines Roman palace intrigue with the conquest of Britain and an investigation plot that slots right into Call of Cthulu. The imagery is compelling, the story is engaging, and it's damn near the most Auran Empire-esque thing I've seen yet - otherworldly horrors in my Roman history? It's more likely than you'd think.

It is supposedly coming back for another run in 2017.

Edit: the trade paperback of all 4 issues is being released Feb 15th, 2017.
