BRITANNIA_001_SECOND-PRINT_COVER-NORD

Looks like retailers and readers are starting to groove on some of Valiant’s new publishing efforts. Britannia #1, a  book about a Roman detective in 65 A.D. Britain by Peter Milligan (Detective Comics), Juan Jose Ryp (NINJAK) and Raul Allen has already sold out at the distributor level, and is getting a second printing. The first issue goes on sale next month and the second printing of #1 will debut with issue #2 on October 12th. 

Valiant has had a good run with Faith, 4001 A.D.’s War Mother and Divinity and this sounds like another intriguing title in their “THE FUTURE OF VALIANT” initiative,

Ruled by the Fates. Manipulated by the Gods. Commanded by Caesar. In the year 65 A.D., one’s destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…
