Londinium must burn! Aquila: the rebellious gladiator-slave has become the unstoppable instrument of Ammit the Devourer, feeding his mistress the souls of evil men.

The incredible historical fantasy from Gordon Rennie (Rogue Trooper) and Leigh Gallagher (Judge Dredd) continues.

    This was an excellent issue as it finishes off the meeting of the The Spartan and fall of Londinium, putting Aquila one step closer to his fated meeting with Ammit The Devourer. The story finished well that connects the arc from the first issue and has set up more to come from this character in the next few issues. This story is tailored for more mature readers because of the violence so be mindful of that. Otherwise, two issues in, I certainly can't wait to see where this story is heading. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Coleman May 20, 2015

    One of the tough things in comics is giving the reader enough information to guess where the story is going, or at least agree with where it goes, while also doing things that surprise. In this vein Aquila is a hard character to place, some pages he's awesome and you think ‘yeah I like this guy'. Other pages he's a complete bastard and you wonder why you're reading about him. His motives have been fairly unclear, but now he has a mission and purpose hopefully he will seem more realized. Read Full Review
