    Milligan and company knocked it out of the park with this one. The story is absorbing and is a visual treat. The biggest disappointment is having to wait until the next issue to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a very satisfying issue. The mystery narrative is progressing nicely, and I’m looking forward to seeing where Milligan takes the story in the next two issues. The art is gorgeous, and it’s reason enough to pick up the book on its own. Read Full Review

    Britannia has returned stronger than ever. There is really no other way for me to say it. Where the first series may have seemed a little plotting during world building moments, the second flourishes due to all of that hard work. Valiant is really on top of their game. Read Full Review
