“Pompetti and Tarek have produced a visually intoxicating work whose sense of grandeur is difficult not to get swept up in.” – A Place to Hang Your Cape
Based on Julius Caesar’s classic and influential “Commentaries on the Gallic War”, “Conquest: Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars” is a 136 page Roman history graphic novel, the first in English to tell the story of Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul from 49 B.C. to 52 B.C. in comic book form.
Watercolor illustrations, painstakingly hand-painted and meticulously researched using the most recent archaeological data available. This book is an illustrated military history book; one of the most accurate accounts, both visually and textually, of the period..
“The whole of Gaul is divided into three parts: one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, and the third a people who in their own language are called ‘Celts,’ but in ours, ‘Gauls.’ They all differ among themselves in respect of language, way of life, and laws….”
Thus begins one of the major works of humanity, Caesar’s “Commentarii de Bello Gallico,” the history of Rome written by a man who marked our history and subconscious, Julius Caesar. Experience the history of Rome, following Caesar’s tenth legion during the Roman Empire’s last military campaign leading up to the Roman Civil War.
