Sláine: Book of Scars by Pat Mills

Sláine: Book of Scars marks 30 years of the Celtic barbarian’s adventures with an anniversary book that brings together a new story from creator Pat Mills and the biggest artists to have worked on Sláine over the past three decades (now available from 2000AD £19.99):

“Along with his odious sidekick Ukko the Dwarf, Sláine has endured 30 years of trials across the ages as he has served the Earth goddess, Danu, both as High King of Ireland and as a time-travelling warrior.

The Book of Scars sees Sláine return to the most pivotal moments of his life where he has to face off against his greatest foes – illustrated by Mick McMahon, Glenn Fabry, Simon Bisley, and Clint Langley, the artists who secured the character’s name in the annuls of British comics history.

This book also collects every Sláine cover ever to grace the front of 2000 AD, as well as some stunning pin-ups, sketches and rarities. Artists, writers, editors, and famous fans all contribute their own thoughts on what makes Sláine such a great star of British weekly comic.”
