  • Spartacus: Blood and Sand - The Motion Comic is a violent historical motion web comic developed as a companion series to the Starz series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, which follows the former warrior-turned gladiator, Spartacus (Andy Whitfield), viciously and doggedly fighting for his freedom. While the main series focuses on its namesake, Spartacus: Blood and Sand - The Motion Comic centers around Spartacus's companions and gladiatorial adversaries, all men with their own thirst for vengeance. Arkadios had once been a proud Greek warrior the Romans enslaved him and sold him as cruel entertainment on the sandy arena floor. The horrifying Gargan Twins, Decimus and Tiberius, had been born for the arena feral, evil, and cannibals and when they were captured, the legendary Crixus tries to take down the unstoppable devourers. Barca had not always been known as the Beast of Carthage when he failed to save his mother from the hands of the Roman marauders. Then, there was Theokoles, the Shadow of Death, a fighter no blade could touch, no man could defeat, every man feared. This companion series is a new style of motion comic that merges the visual appeal of traditional comic books with original voice acting and a musical score.moreless

    • Arkadios: I am a God! The arena is my temple! Blood... my sacred wine! Death my ambrosia!

    • Arkadios: It was a... good life. Until the Romans came.

    • Arthur: When I awoke, my life was over. I was taken to a place, far away from the lust hills of Athens. A place, where the rain seldom came. Capua!

    • Arkadios: I was sold with two others to Solonius, the lanista, a trainer of gladiators. We were given sticks and told the winner will be fed and trained in the ways of death. I've always been good with sticks.

    • Arkadios: Years pass in a haze of pain and blood. Their pain, their blood. And before each death blow, I... imagine his face! The man, who took my life away.

    • Arkadios: The life of a gladiator. Blood and battle.

    • Arkadios: The Cena Libera. The feast the night before the games, the night before our deaths. Thrown by the rich and powerful, seeking to gain the favor of the people. Gladiators are paraded and displayed. Wild animals to be feared and admired.

    • Arkadios: Albinius! The man, who took my life away. He prattles of gifts to the people of Capua. Water carried from Rome, to slay the thirst of the draught. And blood to be spilled in the arena.
