Ruled by the Fates. Manipulated by the Gods. Commanded by Caesar. In the year 65 A.D., one’s destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero’s reign, a veteran of Rome’s imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings… In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia – the First Detective – will become Rome’s only hope to reassert control over the empire’s most barbaric frontier…and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay…

“I see this story as kind of Gladiator meets Druid-era Alien, and that sets the tone. Any story that has Nero and all his excesses, alongside the brutality of Roman Imperial oppression and mashes this with dark magic and horror must have a degree of darkness to it,” writer Peter Milligan told ComicBook.com. “But there’s a lot of humanity in there too… I think this mix of the real and the fabulous, the dark and the amusing, makes it unlike most stories set in the ancient world.”
