The issue began with Antonius Axia's life nearly ending.

Dispatched from Rome to investigate the goings-on up north, he who'd earned the name Detectioner was almost at the truth of things.

He'd been turning them over in his mind, in his tent, when the woman Bodmall came to him.

They embraced, her hands on his back.

Then her hands changed, against her will, and went for his neck.

He held her off with his sword. )

Antonius Axia was remembering his service as a centurion.

His memories awoke his instincts; he blocked the sword raised against him with his own.

His attacker headbutted him and tried another swing.

" .. it's been years since I was a legionnaire. " thought Antonius.

" But that thing with time still happens. "

He watched the blade drawn back. )

The Roman Antonius Axia, tasked by the Emperor Nero to investigate goings on in that place, was in the thick of them.

A monstrosity loomed before him on a field of gore.

Then it resolved into a more pleasing shape- the beckoning spirit of his dead wife.

It was still what it was, though. )

It's written by Peter Milligan and drawn by Juan José Ryp.

It opens in Etrusca, on the chief of the Vestal Virgins and a centurion of the Italian First Legion.

She, Rubria, had a task for him, Antonius Axia- rescue one of hers from a local cult.

She put it to him unofficially, because it wouldn't do to lose face by asking for official help.

He took three legionnaires to face the cult.

There was the shedding of blood, and then him and the one he'd gone to save.

There was red and green. )

Vertigo is to me what Image Comic seems to be others. While everyone gets excited over whatever Image puts out, Vertigo does that for me. It's produced some my favorite comics of all time (Fables, iZombie, Scalped, Saucer Country, and The Unwritten), but it has been falling on hard times recently. This imprint barely had any new titles at all!

...that is, until just recently...

Mention "Batman" and "the nineties" in the same sentence, and most Batman fans will run away screaming unless you happen to be talking about Batman: The Animated Series (or one of its excellent tie-in comics). I've come to realize that 90s!Batman's reputation for being a coldhearted asshole isn't completely undeserved, but even still, I continue to find that the era contained some of the most underrated Batman tales of all time.

Case in point: Detective Comics #638, written by one of Batman's most under-appreciated scribes: Peter Milligan. Now, Milligan is typically far more famous in Marvel/Vertigo circles, but pound for pound, the handful of Batman stories he did are almost all treasures. Even "Dark Knight, Dark City", decried by many as being a needless grimdarking of the Riddler, has its charms as an old-school horror story, and the Riddler's atypically violent behavior is not only explained, but pretty explicitly temporary.

But we're not here to talk about that today. No, we're here to talk about a far more obscure story known simply as... "The Bomb".

A tale of destruction, doubt, and double-crosses behind the cut! )
