Things Get Spookier In Ancient Britain In ‘Britannia’ #2 [Preview]

Britannia #2, Valiant Entertainment

I'm a pretty big fan of learning about history, but one thing that I've learned from reading up on ancient Rome is that most of those stories suffer from a truly alarming lack of monsters with sixteen eyes and a dozen clawed tentacles showing up to make things interesting. But fortunately, as always, comic books are here to improve upon reality, and when Britannia #2 hits shelves in October, it's bringing horrifying monsters with it.

As writer Peter Milligan teased in his interview about the series here at CA, he and artist Juan Jose Ryp are ramping up the supernatural horror as the series continues, and you can get a first look right here. Check out the preview below!

Aliens Meets Gladiator Meets Philip Marlowe: Peter Milligan Talks ‘Britannia’ [Interview]

Britannia, Valiant Entertainment

In Britannia, Peter Milligan, Juan José Ryp and Jordie Bellaire tell the story of the world's first detective, a Roman centurion with an unusual understanding of psychology. When something that defies his knack for logic causes a murderous kind of trouble in the far reaches of the Empire, he's sent away from his home in the city to a colony far to the north --- and given the title of the series, you can probably guess which one.

To find out more about the series, which launches in September from Valiant, ComicsAlliance spoke to Milligan about his approach to introducing a "detectioner" into the ancient world, the challenges of creating a character who combines modern sensibilities with Roman society, and the historical facts that informed his story. We also got an exclusive look at pages from the upcoming issue.

SyFy Comic Book Adaptations 2014

This TV season is already overflowing with new TV shows based on comics, with Gotham, iZombie, Powers, The Flash, and more on the way, but SyFy announced this week that it's adding even more to the list.

Keeping in line with its return to science fiction and fantasy programming (though it's keeping its oddly spelled name, it seems), the network is launching a huge slate of new shows, including four based on comics: Ronin, Pax Romana, Letter 44 and Clone.
