Recently I re-read Pax Romana and discussed it with a group of friends. I had read it a few years ago back when it was originally released, the rest of the group were first time readers. Having had a few years to digest the story and go over it’s complexities, I have found it to be a real fascinating read. It made me think about the impact of technology and sociological engineering. There is also time travel, which is always awesome. Of course Hickman is not for the weak, he wants you to re-read and think about what he’s discussing. If this kind of intellectual comic appeals to you then I strongly suggest checking it out.
