(W) Peter Milligan (A) Juan Jose Ryp (CA) Cary Nord. Duty has led to darkness... Dispatched to the remote outpost of Britannia by Rome's highest power* the ancient world's first detective - veteran legionnaire Antonius Axia - has found himself on a horrifying journey that will challenge everything he knows about death* destiny* and the limits of reality itself. But in this wild and pagan land* far removed from Nero's control and influence* how will he grapple with the witches* demons and deities that lurk just out of sight? These are aberrations beyond the comprehension of a citizen of history's most civilized empire...and* as Axia searches for the truth behind their making* he must first ask himself: Are these monsters truly creatures of myth...or creations of his own mind? The answers will be found as comics legend Peter Milligan (Shade* the Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK* Clone) lead a phantasmagorical expedition in the lands between darkness* desire* and destruction in the pages of Valiant's latest prestige-format masterwork!
