* HotterAndSexier: The modern albums grow ever more risqué, with one girl throwing herself at Alix on a ship during a thunderstorm on the grounds that it'll make sex better, while one panel in "Saturn's Gold" features explicit wall engravings, all objectionable parts blocked by clothing or characters coincidentally raising their hands.



* AllFoNothing: Khephren uses the line at the end of the fifth book. And with good reason.



** Cybele's priests use lions to get rid of dead bodies.



* DarkerAndEdgier: The sequel is a lot darker, with a contemporary art style that doesn't hesitate to show bloody deaths, not to mention Enak having died sometime before and Alix having lost his youthful idealism.
** He no longer hesitates to have a prisoner tortured for information, and gives an enemy a MercyKill after threatening him with a slow death.
