Duty has led to darkness…
Dispatched to the remote outpost of Britannia by Rome’s highest power, the ancient world’s first detective – veteran legionnaire Antonius Axia – has found himself on a horrifying journey that will challenge everything he knows about death, destiny, and the limits of reality itself. But in this wild and pagan land, far removed from Nero’s control and influence, how will he grapple with the witches, demons and deities that lurk just out of sight? These are aberrations beyond the comprehension of a citizen of history’s most civilized empire…and, as Axia searches for the truth behind their making, he must first ask himself: Are these monsters truly creatures of myth… or creations of his own mind?
The answers will be found as comics legend Peter Milligan (Shade, the Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (NINJAK, Clone) lead a phantasmagorical expedition in the lands between darkness, desire, and destruction in the pages of Valiant’s latest prestige-format masterwork!

Better to battle the devil you know!
Enduring for centuries, but haunted by regret, the Eternal Warrior has trespassed against the nature of life and death…to restore the life of a son he lost centuries ago. Now, hunted by demonic forces in the space between this world and the next, Gilad has finally found the wayward boy that he has sworn to rescue from the edge of eternity, no matter what the price. But will the young man called Kalam come willingly to the father he never knew…or has the Eternal Warrior spawned a new enemy for the ages?
“A DEAL WITH A DEVIL” marches forward here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) and acclaimed artist Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH) send the Eternal Warrior hurdling through the realm of the dead!
