“SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure” Is a Manga-Inspired Take on Roman History

“Great Caesar’s ghost!”

Last Friday, 9 Realms Publishing launched a crowdfunding campaign for SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure: Rubicon Invaders, an over-the-top comic book retelling of the Roman civil wars inspired by the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series.

The campaign also serves as an opportunity to soft-launch a remastered edition of Elysian Fields: Pyramid Gambit (aptly titled Elysian Fields: Pyramid Gambit Remaster), which features new coloring by Avery Ferdinand.

Here’s the official (and pithy) sales pitch from the SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure Indiegogo campaign page:

SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure: Rubicon Invaders is a not-so-accurate historical retelling of “the Rubicon Crossing” the way you never knew you needed – with big muscles, dramatic posing, and barrages of punches!

See Julius Caesar’s clash with Pompey Magnus as he tries to cross the Rubicon to save Rome!

Backers can get a copy of SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure for $10. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up the following:

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
