Valiant Sends Sold-Out BRITANNIA #2 Back to Press

ADVANCE REVIEW: Britannia #1: The First Detective vs An Ancient Terror

ADVANCE REVIEW: Britannia #1: The First Detective vs An Ancient Terror

Britannia #1 is an unconventional and ambitious debut issue, of that there’s no doubt. Writer Peter Milligan tries to marry pseudo-historical political intrigue with police procedural and then mix in supernatural, primeval horror to the narrative.

ADVANCE REVIEW: The Discipline #1 is Tremendously Fascinating and Edgy

When The Discipline was announced, writer Peter Milligan described it as the “edgiest story I’ve written.” He’s not wrong.
