He'd gone to the arena with his slave Bran.

He'd found a lead in his investigations, a gladiator's memento.

He watched the gladiator in question, Achillia, win another of her matches.

He went down to confront her. )

It's a four-issue mini, a sequel to Valiant's previous Britannia.

It opened some time before that'd ended, on a house in Rome.

A man drinking wine called for one of his slaves. She came, bearing a jug.

He and his friend smiled eagerly. )

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. )

Its cast's equal to its premise.

Its protagonist, uber-psiot (psychic) Toyo Harada, wants to change the world. He wages war with all he is and all he has to that end, against those that would oppose him.

One of those are the alien Vine, who have Earth marked out for themselves.

He struck the first blow against them. In response, they formed the Vine Planting Liberation Army.

As acronyms go, it's certainly one. )

"What interests me the most about John Horus is that, although he Is genuinely frightening, the possibility exists that he’s actually entirely right. That a good man cannot stand idly by and do nothing." - Warren Ellis

"I mean, the broader point of 'Planetary' was very much asking people to look at the roots the genre sprang from and understanding the primal quality of the 20th Century myths we wrote. So when this [story] hit me – and I'm pretty sure I was standing in my garden at three in the morning with a glass of whisky, smoking furiously and swearing at the sky, reduced to waiting for the thunderbolt to hit – it spoke to me not only of the reasons why someone might put on a helmet and find justice their own way, but also why we read these myths of social justice ourselves. Where would you draw the line?" - Warren Ellis

"Half the potential audience is going to see John Horus as the bad guy, and that's not without merit. Half the audience is going to see him as the Good Guy, and I can see where they're coming from too. I take no public position.I'm writing it from both angles at once and letting people make up their own minds." - Warren Ellis

"In a field as well-mined as the superhero genre, it's hard to find questions to ask that aren't also complex or self-referential, and I wanted something direct that stood on its own two feet. I like to try and find something to say about a genre without just finding a navel to gaze into." - Warren Ellis

"[Avatar editor-in-chief William Christensen] bet me I couldn't come up with a high-concept superhero 'event' book that naturally featured all new characters and ideas, but also hit some of the notes of a standard Big Two event program. Huge technical challenge, and I like those, because they keep me sharp. It took me more than a year, mind you... Until I hit on the two ideas. What if a superhero killed the President? And the underpinning: where do you draw the line?" - Warren Ellis

Greetings True Believers!

I have two pages here from an old Robocop mini-series that I was re-reading.

I love Robocop, movies and comics. So enjoy Robocop giving Lewis one of hell of a snog.

(BTW, this mini was based on Frank Miller's original script for Robocop 2. I wish they had used it.)
