The axeman cometh!
The axeman cometh!
"Sláine: Book of Invasions 1 hits North America this week!"
The first volume in a brand new series for 2000 AD’s iconic barbarian arrives in North America this week.

Sláine: Book of Invasions 1 sees Pat Mills’ axe-wielding hero begin a new epic quest that sears its way across 122 pages of genre-busting action!

In the astonishing and fresh follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Sláine: The Horned God, the former first High King of Ireland must protect his tribe against a new tide of evil - the Sea Devils, led by the inhuman Moloch, a hideous Fomorian lord driven by a perverse hunger for human suffering.

Written by 2000 AD’s creator, Pat Mills (Marshal Law, ABC Warriors), Sláine is the muscle-bound barbarian with a sharp wit and his stone axe, Brainbiter. Merging extreme violence, sardonic humour, celtic mythology and fantastical ideas, the strip is a refreshingly authentic voice in comic books.

The series is the perfect showcase for Clint Langley’s incredible eye-popping mixture of fully-painted art and digital manipulation, which has made him a firm favourite with fans.

Sláine: Book of Invasions Volume 1 is the start of a brand new chapter in the story of one of 2000 AD’s most enduring and popular characters.
