Rex Mundi

I started collecting a comic series called “Rex Mundi” a few years ago. I loved the book, “Holy Blood, Holy Grail,” and this comic’s storyline incorporates many of the legends, theories and conspiracies discussed in the book. A few years after it was published the book was declared to be a fraud. Was it? Or just a plan to discredit the authors and material?

The popularity of that book was the inspiration behind Dan Brown’s “The DaVinci Code.” And those two books propelled yet another entertaining Grail story into being: “Rex Mundi.”

“Rex Mundi” is a quest for the Holy Grail told as a murder mystery. It is set in an alternate-history Paris where sorcery is real and the Catholic Church never lost its grip on power.

The series follows Doctor Julien Sauniere as he investigates the theft of a medieval scroll from a Paris church. He stumbles onto a series of horrific ritual murders and an ancient secret society somehow connected to the mysterious scroll.

This scroll is a manuscript written by a Templar scribe in the mid-1200s on the location of the tomb of Clovis II, a king of the Franks. A member of the Merovingian dynasty, they claimed to be descended from Jesus. The tomb may provide information on the whereabouts of the Holy Grail.
