Julius
Crime/Tragedy • Illustrated by Brett Weldele

"Shakespeare would be proud."
Greg McElhatton, iComics

"Johnston and Weldele succeed in not only doing The Bard justice, but in producing a quite superb graphic novel."
Matthew Craig, Robot Fist

Returned home to London's East End after a bitter territorial war, gangster boss Julius discovers his position is in jeopardy from his own power-hungry lieutenants. Led by his right-hand man Brett, the gangsters assassinate Julius and make an alliance with a rival gang — but soon realise wielding power isn't as easy as it looks.

JULIUS is a modern reworking of Shakespeare's classic play Julius Caesar, set against the backdrop of organised crime in East End London.
