Reviews

'A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it...It is absurd that these wonderful books were ever out of print, and it's great to have them back' - TIME OUT'There are plenty of Latin quips and snippets of Roman history, but enough low puns to make the stories as enjoyable as ever' - EVENING STANDARD
