Ah, ancient Rome. It’s always a reliable source of debauchery. That’s why for the whole month of September, Dollsexposed visits this era.

Eagles of Rome by Dargaud/Europe Comics is considerably tamer than its contemporaries like Caligula one and two with their gratuitous depiction of violence and gore.

Honestly, when I saw the cover, I was anticipating some gay sex between the two main characters. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Safe for one (almost) gay rape, a measly orgy panel, and a pederasty taunt that results in a castration threat, there’s almost no hint of non-straight sex.

If you’d rather see full-on gay sex, read The Terrible Pope by the great Jodorowsky. It’s not exactly ancient Rome, but you get the idea.

The blurb:

The strategic general Drusus is entrusted with the mission of bringing the indomitable barbarians of Germania under the Roman Empire’s control. Once the battle is won, Prince Sigmar offers his son, Arminius, as a hostage to the Romans. Caesar consigns the education of the young barbarian to one of his most trusted companions, Titus Valerius Falco. Titus has a son of the same age as Arminius, an unruly young man called Marcus, also in need of an education worthy of his name. Together, these two budding soldiers go through full training, and are time and again subjected to the steely discipline and harsh tests of their tutor, an ex-legionary. Through these trying experiences, the insolent young Roman and the hot-headed German gradually transform their reciprocal hatred into a strong friendship… especially as they begin to discover the irresistible charms of their various female contemporaries…
