I don't wish to exchange to many thoughts on this book...As it's a little unclear at this point.
Basically a roman solider is sent to Etrusca (Italy) to rescue a vestal virgin from some evil cult. The legionnaires are successful in the retrieval of the lady.
Later the head of the Vestal Virgins asks Nero to send the same solider to the feared lands of Britain. As there are talks of monsters & demons.
The artwork is good, The story...Is odd! It was a difficult read, I'm big into history inc. The Romans & this was a shadow of there greatness.
Nero looked like Alfred E. Neuman from Mad magazine. The roman solider was caught up in some spells while reading a codex, He then tracks down a fat naked dude (he was entertaining a mistress) cause his misses wanted to know where he was & Nero kills a dude & lastly in Britain, we see a moving rotten pile of flesh with a hundred eyes eating people & well...........
Look, It was boring. Sorry! (but not bad)
I'm sure it will get better. Best way to describe this book is that it was written with the help of Mike Mignola...Only that he was in the next room.
