Interview: Heading to 'Rome West' With Giampaoli and Taylor
Jul 31, 2018
From San Diego Comic-Con! Rome West’s co-writer Justin Giampaoli and cover artist Matt Taylor give us an alternate history of America…through the eyes of the Roman Empire!
What would world history look like if a fleet of Roman ships arrived before Columbus? "We went out of our way to find reasons to find why Romans and Native Americans could exist and create a hybrid civilization," Justin Giampaoli explains about his Dark Horse title co-written with Brian Wood (Northlanders, DMZ).

Rome West TP
In AD 323, a fleet of Roman ships is lost in a storm, and they find themselves on the shores of the New World-one thousand years before Columbus. Unable to return home, they establish a new colony, Roma Occidens, radically altering the timeline of America and subsequent world events as seen through the eyes of one family. An exploration in alternative history from Brian Wood, Justin Giampaoli, and Andrea Mutti.
