The Brath Prequel was the taste of great things to come! The Decurian reminded me of Roman soldiers and it was very fascinating to see other type of tribes using weapons that they have mastered battling alongside the Decurian, as they fight against the Wildmen of Irisium. The Wildmen of Irisium reminds me of Scottish Highlanders. Also, I enjoyed how one of the main characters a soldier named Anthonius Casta narrates throughout this story. We the reader, get to see this story unfold through his eyes and ears. Brath MacGaren who this comic book is named after is a very charismic leader and the battle that the Decurian and Wildmen are involved in is very detailed, thanks to the gorgeous artwork by Andrea Di Vito. When the 13th or also known as the Legionnaires return from battle, it is a sad sight seeing fellow soldiers helping their wounded and now they are less in numbers. This is a sight that is familiar to all men and women who have served our country in war. I want to know more about the visions that Brath receives and why is he having a vision of a city that holds within its walls….his enemies?
