The latest digital-only 2000 AD collection, Aquila Volume II: The Burning Fields is now available to buy on the 2000 AD webshop and app.
In this stunning historical fantasy story, travel back to Ancient Rome to meet slave-turned-gladiator-turned-collector-of-souls Aquila!
A gladiator and slave who joined Spartacus’s failed revolt and was crucified, Aquila called out for vengeance during his slow and painful death. He was answered by Ammit the Devourer, a deity that gifted him with immortality in return for keeping her fed with evil men’s souls. But Aquila has discovered he is by no means alone in serving Ammit’s thirst for souls, and wants to be released from her grasp – but will his quest devour his very soul?
Written by Gordon Rennie, with art by Paul Davidson and Patrick Goddard, this is swords and sorcery with a historical twist, a violent and bloody descent through the ages with the undying assassin and his compatriot Felix embarking on a mission that may shake the foundations of hell itself!
