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; Ara's tribe have been ambushed and completely crushed by a Roman legion. Now a prisoner and with his best friend lost in the chaos of the attack, Ara desperately searches for a chance to escape from his captors. Can he make his escape alone and what do the Romans have in store for him and the other surviors?
