The Collected Slaine

January 16, 2010


The Collected Slaine (1993, Titan Books) ****

W: Pat Mills A: Mike McMahon & Glenn Fabry.

A celtic warrior journeys home to the tribe that made him an outcast, only to be made king.

Collection of classic Slaine material from two distinct periods in his history. Fabry’s detailed, fleshy art suits the later stories well, but McMahon’s wiry and kinetic line and figurework stands out as something starling and original.  Mills provides some of his best writing, working to create a solidly realised world where nature and magic co-exist. Originally serialised in 2000AD.
