3. The Black Swan

Script by Romain Sardou - Art by Carlos Rafael Duarte

The year 535.
Maxentius and Ofellus travel
to the imperial provinces.
From Italy, the Gothic sect of
the Black Swans is plotting the
empire’s downfall.
Is the eternal war between
the Romans and the barbarians
about to be rekindled?
Maxentius, Empress Theodora’s
spy, knows well that even
thousands of leagues from
Constantinople, her shadow
looms, ready to shake
up history…
