David Lapham has become the master of shock with his Crossed, Ferals, Dan the Unharmable, and of course, Caligula comics. ?In this final issue of Caligula: Heart of Rome all the creeping horror comes home to roost. ?And things get significantly worse for Rome and noble Laurentius.
The two Caligula series have been unlike other historical fictions centered on the era. ?This series goes beyond the glorification of the sex and violence of the period into the supernatural. ?Caligula is more a cross between Spartacus and The?Exorcist?than the retelling of a madman’s excesses. ?The imagery and the power of Lapham’s vision for the story is unparalleled with other comics telling Roman tales.
If you enjoy the twisted and freakish, there is no better comic to be reading. ?The first trade paperback volume is available and now, all six issues of Heart of Rome are also available at your local comic shop.
