At the border between civilization and the magic-laden lands beyond, Rome's first detective is haunted by violence and visions of dark forces that defy all sense...

Antonius Axia's disturbing investigation in the frontier colony of Britannia deepens...and with each disturbing new clue he uncovers, the farther his mind sinks into disarray! Connecting the clues behind the grisly rumors of horror in the empire's northernmost reach, Antonius must gain an ally as dangerous as the darkness that now surrounds him. But who is this mysterious new partner, and will she lead Antonius toward the bright light of truth and salvation...or into the cold flame of eternal damnation? Sense falls away to seduction as comics legend Peter Milligan (Shade, The Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (NINJAK) march Valiant's latest magnum opus toward its most insidious chapter yet!

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto Nov 16, 2016

    Allow yourself to be mesmerized by Britannia #3. This third book delves deeper into superstition and magic, but keeps one foot firmly on the ground as Axia chases leads into dangerous territory. This is a smartly written tale occurring in an atypical time and place, effectively illustrated and colored to the greatest effect. Fans should be looking forward to the conclusion of this thoroughly enjoyable miniseries. Hopefully it wont be the last we see of the Detectioner. Read Full Review

    The only downfall to Britannia #3 is that there is only one more issue left for the series. Read Full Review

    The final issue of Britannia will be issue four. In that issue, there will be a lot of ground to cover. There is so much of this series that has yet to be said, and I hope the creative team are able to bring our story to a successful close.Ultimately, this is both the failing and strengthof issue #3. You would think that there would be a more firm understanding of actually is going on; I thought Britannia #3 would give the readers that. It did not. However, it left me wanting desperately to finish this journey, and any book that can achieve that is a good one in my opinion. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Nov 17, 2016

    Britannia carries a constant feeling of dread as Antonius Axia heads down the path of madness.  He may find out who's killing these Roman soldiers, but he'll be driven insane as a result.  This book is worth reading for Juan Jose Ryp's artwork alone.  He's one of the best in the business and way too underrated right now.
