I was expecting something akin to Lindsey Davis' The Silver Pigs but Antonius Axia is no Marcus Didius Falco. He could have been, had the book been given the usual six issues instead of four, to develop the characters and story better. But this was still a good read with great art. And I love Ancient Rome detective stories. Or detectioner as called here. 3.5⭐️'s out of 5.

Between 🤘🏻 and so-so depending on how you like graphic violence.

A really crazy story that's a bit like The Name of the Rose (with 0 Catholic monks) crossed with The Thirteenth Warrior/King Arthur (Clive Owen version). It's pretty violent, the art is super dark, but I like this idea a lot. The ending left it open for Valiant to do more with the character.

It did seem like a few panels were missing. Read for Graphic Novel group at the store.

Wonderful artwork & an intriguing notion get completely lost in the extremely rushed, uneven, and forced storytelling. It's beautifully bloody & focuses on Ancient Rome as well Druidism involving the Vestal Virgins, but the plot progression was so unsavoury & disappointing. 2 virgins outta 5.
