There aren’t terribly many historical comics taking place in ancient Rome. The ones that do exist seem to thematically echo. They usually take place on the outskirts of the Roman Empire, on the frontier of the colonies. That setting lets the creative team dabble in European folk-horror imagery, since a lot of that horror came from Christian stories about their pagan ancestors. “Dead Romans” follows the formula to the letter, but I challenge you to find a comic that looks better this month.
