Julius: Let Slip the Dogs of War
James Lucas Jones
Oni Press, 2004 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 156 pages
The East End is barely part of London anymore. Isolationist gangs have violently ripped the neighborhood from its place in society, creating their own insular world. Now, after a bloody year of turf wars, the East End's ruling families return home victorious to resume their reign. And risen above them all is one man: Julius. Unlike the crime lords who came before him, Julius rules the streets with a just and fair law. The people love him; the other families fear him and his power. Now they are considering what once would have been unthinkable: complete dissolution of the families' organizations in favor of a single leader. But not everyone is ready for this new world order. As the ides of March draw near, even some of his top lieutenants question Julius' growing power. Antony Johnston and Brett Weldele recreate Shakespeare's classic political thriller with a hard modern edge, bringing new relevance and poignancy to Julius Caesar.
