Sláine: The Horned God Collector's Edition
Rediscover one of the most influential graphic novels ever,
with the Sláine: The Horned God – Collector’s Edition.
Timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of its first
publication, this new, larger paperback edition of the bestselling 2000
AD collection, written by industry visionary Pat Mills, features the
groundbreaking fully-painted art of comics legend Simon Bisley. One of the most
popular stories ever published in the pages of 2000 AD, The Horned God is a
heady mix of Celtic mythology, extreme violence, and beautiful artwork. As well
as Mills’ fascinating characters and saga-like storytelling, the stunning
enormity of Bisley’s work on the series cannot be understated, with epic
battles and vast landscapes evoking everything from the work of Frank Frazetta
to Gustav Klimt.
This deluxe collector’s edition returns us to the
mist-wreathed realm of Tír na nÓg, the ancient land suffering under the
dominion of the Drunes; strange druids who have poisoned the land with their
magic. Sláine has had enough of their tyranny and, through the Earth Goddess,
he learns some shocking truths about the priesthood and his own future. Now
Sláine must unite the four kings of Tír na nÓg and use their mystical weapons
as he and the Sessair tribe prepare for all-out war!
