SWEET AS: The Top September 2016 Solicitations From Comics' Other Publishers

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's 'Sweet as'. When I look at Valiant, Dynamite, IDW, and Dark Horse's September 2016 solicits, these comics make the 'Sweet As' grade:

In the year 65 A.D., one's destiny was not his own. At the height of Nero's reign, a veteran of Rome's imperial war machine has been dispatched to the farthest reaches of the colonies to investigate unnatural happenings -- In the remote outpost of Britannia, Antonius Axia - the First Detective - will become Rome's only hope to reassert control over the empire's most barbaric frontier -- and keep the monsters that bridge the line between myth and mystery at bay.
