"Pax Romana" was recommended to me by Amazon due to my purchase of several of J. Hickman's TPBs from the Marvel stable, indicative of my continued, starry-eyed geek-boy worship of Mr. Hickman, which remains undiminished despite my disappointment.

Because I was disappointed- "Pax Romana" just isn't my cup of tea. I can appreciate it, but I didn't enjoy it.

The artwork is beautiful, but not varied, the majority of it realised in characters seen from the waist-up talking politics, with little more visual impact than the several text pages. But the real flaw (for me) is the lack of humour, of sympathetic characters, and of character development. The protagonists start out as Machiavellian technocratic terrorists, and that's what they remain.

That Mr. Hickman can write "high-concept" as well as he writes "conventionally" is a great credit to his versatility. But if, like me, you buy Hickman for his work on Marvel, you should be aware that the recommendation you receive may not be appropriate in this instance.

Amazing idea for a story line. Fantastically originally artwork that gives it a unique and almost dream-like feel. My only complaint: I wish it was longer! There's so much awesome here, I wish it had been stretched out into longer series!

I bought this comic after reading The Nightly News and I was not disappointed! I won't spoil the plot but it is as interesting and intriguing as The Nightly News.

If you haven't read any of Hickman's stuff then I am not sure how to describe his style, its just exceptionally well written, gripping and well researched.

Don't get me wrong, I adore comics and spend WAAY to much money on them, but this is a different beast all together. Hickman writes great superhero stuff but this is truly outstanding. As a sociology student studying for my doctorate I'm really glad that this sort of stuff is getting written, read and well reviewed. Clever, well presented, well written. This is truly worth getting. Bravo Hickman
