The world’s first detective, Antonius Axia is about to embark on a new case investigating strange, supernatural happenings in Rome.  Writer Peter Milligan and artist Juan Jose Ryp team up for the next chapter of Britannia, We Who Are About To Die, set to debut in April from Valiant Entertainment.  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.

The first Britannia was a runaway success leading to a ton of reprintings.  I’m excited to check out the new series, especially with who crazy creepy the previous book was.  The first issue includes covers from Cary Nord, David Mack, Adam Gorham, and Dave Johnson.  Look for the first issue of Britannia: We Who Are About To Die at your local comic shop or ComiXology on April 26th, 2017.
