Great science fiction story - interesting art. I definitely felt that the last issue was rushed, and I bristled a bit with the scene taking place at the Council of Nicaea, but otherwise I thought it was really good. ( )

This is not just a simple time travel story that Jonathan Hickman has created, it's much more. It's a story of individuals struggling against and for a collective vision and the bonds that are forged along the way. What can a few dedicated souls accomplish in the interest of advancing humanity technologically, philosophically and politically in a shorter time span than was originally written in the history books? What is the morality behind utilitarian principles that place ideology and absolutes above the progression of human events? All of these questions and more are posed and pondered in Hickman's tale of human vision and potential. The art is wonderful. It weaves a tapestry of almost dream like proportions, as the characters ethereally slip in and out of the story. If you're in for a rewrite of history and a few thoughts regarding time paradox and philosophy, check this one out. Although, I feel this book ended a little abruptly, there is still a very worthwhile and refreshing piece of storytelling wrapped in a nice package. Read it. ( )

Book description
In 2045, as Islam has overrun Europe and the West openly shuns monotheism, the Vatican funded, CERN Laboratories 'discover' that time travel is possible. The Pope orders the creation of a private army, and led by a few handpicked Cardinals and the finest graduates of selected war colleges, they travel back in time to 312AD - the reign of the first Christian Emperor, Constantine. Upon arrival, conflicting agendas, ideological differences, and personal greed see grand plans unravel. Pax Romana is the tale of 5,000 men sent on an impossible mission to change the past and save the future. At the end of the world, will they succeed, or will they fail?
