Fresh off a startling adventure in the pages of Britannia, Antonius Axia, the world's first detective is set to return in April with Britannia: We Who Are About To Die from Valiant Entertainment. The original series was an intriguing and terrifying alternate history where Antonius battled Lovecraftian monsters in Ancient Rome while solving a series of mysterious murders. This new series presents a new set of challenges for our hero in a new mini-series from writer Peter Milligan and artist Juan Jose Ryp. Here's the write-up from the publisher:

Fifty thousand Romans stand on their feet, watching from the rafters of the Coliseum with captured breath as Achillia, a gladiator unlike any that Rome has seen before, faces incredible odds - one lone warrior against five of Rome’s greatest. Such is the tradition, when a female gladiator enters the fray. When the carnage is complete, the Coliseum roars its approval as Achillia stands victorious. Now, only one match away from winning her freedom, she has begun to gain renown. The women of Rome, suppressed by their husbands and fathers, have noticed. The men of Rome, husbands and fathers to a growing horde of women entertaining ideas of independence, have noticed as well.

On the other side of Rome, a strange mystery swirls through the Palatine Hill. In the dead of night, down winding alleys, Rome’s elite swear that they see visions of a blood-soaked Apollo walking the city...visions that are driving them mad. Even more are becoming sick with weird fever god-dreams. Panic ensues in the city. The Chief Vestal, Rubria, is arrested by Emperor Nero and threatened with crucifixion unless the deadly curse that’s fallen on Rome is lifted. She asks Antonius Axia, hero of Britannia and Rome’s only detective, for help. She offers  only one clue...the gladiator Achillia.
