SPQR is a brand-new comic created, written, and lettered by Riley Hamilton with pencils from Samrat Das, inks from Rowel Roque, and colours by Lucas Aparicio. It is a historical fiction set in the Roman Empire in 69 CE, also known as the Year of the Four Emperors. The story is an action comic with a healthy dose of character drama and is inspired by true events.


It is 69 CE; the death of Nero has thrown the Roman Empire into chaos. Several powerful generals have been proclaimed as Emperor by their legions and march on Rome to lay claim to the title Augustus. On the frontier of the Empire, a tribe of starving nomads, seeking food and supplies, have crossed into Roman territory. Ara, a young hunter and eager warrior, is among them and longs to fight against the famous steel men of Rome. He will receive his wish far sooner than he expects.
