Matt Crotts uses beautiful drawing, dynamic storytelling, and a well-researched blend of history and legend to bring the ancient border between empires to vibrant life. KYRIE is definitely a comic to watch.”

Book 2: Exiles in Wasteland opens with the prisoner, the head treasure hunter, and a surviving Roman soldier washing up on the Libyan shoreline.

The prisoner and treasure hunter agree to a temporary alliance in order to hunt for the Red Lady's origins - a forgotten oasis somewhere in the south Egyptian wastes.

The senator sets off with a military attachment to chase these protagonists down. The prisoner explains that Alexander the Great originally received the Red Lady, on his quest to defeat the ultimate enemy - his own mortality.

The traveling trio enter a dangerous border town, in search of a wandering Berber tribe that can take them to Siwa.

Book 1: The Curse of the Macedonian Scroll follows an unlikely team of treasure hunters as they race to escape Alexandria with the Red Lady of Babylon - an infernal ruby coveted by both Roman and Persian Empires, containing an encrypted message.

The robbers steal a senator's sailing ship, and discover a prisoner aboard who knows how to reveal the Red Lady's message, and a scroll which explains it.

But is this mysterious prisoner more dangerous than the Roman naval authorities who are hunting them down?

“This is one of those rare, wonderful tales in which you can revel in the surface - the beautiful, evocative colours, the movement and character of the sublime linework - but at the same time there is something beneath, pulling you deeper into the story with every panel, taking you on a journey that conjures anticipation and promises excitement - a perfect recipe for adventure.

Matt Crotts has created a world that is tinted with magic yet also feels historically real and alive - it’s a joy to get lost in. KYRIE is a real treasure.”
