If Rome Had Conquered The Americas: Rome West From Brian Wood, Justin Giampoli, Andrea Mutti, And Dark Horse

by Hannah Means Shannon

Dark Horse have announced that they’ll be publishing a series that teams up Brian Wood and Andrea Mutti, joined by co-writer Justin Giampaoli (DMZ, Starship Down, The Mercy Killing) for an exploration of “an alternative history of the Americas”.

The series Rome West was originally published on the digital platform Stela, and now is coming to print as a trade paperback at Dark Horse.

In Rome West:

When a lost armada of Roman soldiers arrives a thousand years before Columbus, they don’t seek to conquer and exterminate, but instead set up a cooperative society with the indigenous peoples that radically alters the timeline of the Americas… and the rest of the world. Fans of history, alt-history, and politically-relevant stories will be fascinated at the depth of detail and classic ‘what-if’ narrative.

Rome West TPB goes on sale July 4, 2018, and is available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop.
