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!

    With Britannia #2,Peter Milligan delivers a comic far removed from the superhero fare that fills many of the racks at your local comic shop, but it's also far better than most of those comics.We're halfway through the miniseries now, and I've loved every page so far. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Robert Reed Oct 16, 2016

    Britannia #2 continues the medieval horror tone established in the debut to great effect. Peter Milligan continues to build upon the mystery and Juan Jos Ryp's art shows just how monstrous men can be to one another. In the end, this is Jordie Bellaire's issue, and her remarkable colors bring Britannia #2 to life in horrific detail. It's the gripping atmosphere that her art brings that makes Britannia #2 such an entertaining and suspenseful read. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 12, 2016

    Britannia #2 dives deeper into this mental thriller giving us more investment in a world where you don't really expect to expect the unexpected. Solid and steady progression in the story and even better character development all the way through. Read Full Review

    Britannia #2 echoes its inaugural issue in all of the right places. The story continues to be fleshed out, and the art continues to engross the reader in a tale of war and terror. Hopefully, the title will maintain this high level of craftsmanship as we cross the halfway point for the final two issues. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Oct 12, 2016

    Despite some bumpy parts, Britannia #2 is overall a solid issue that starts to peel back the mystery of Britannia. Antonius as a character is at his strongest when he's investigating and given a clear context. This allows the story to move forward in the most compelling way since it brings the local population into play. Rubria and Nero's interaction mainly feels like a distraction considering next to nothing was revealed about their true plans. However I am hopeful right now that all these different story threads will start coming together better next issue. And I'm looking forward to that. Read Full Review
