4.0 out of 5 stars Kiss my axe! 27 May 2014
I had previously never known about Slaine. My only experience with 2000ad stories were ABC Warriors & Judge Dredd. My dad actually told me about Slaine after we'd seen the 2012 Dredd movie at the cinema (which was awesome) I liked the mystical Irish theme & usually I like anything that includes ridiculous over the top violence. I read around on the internet & found that Warrior's Dawn collected the original comics. I read through it in one evening. I couldn't put it down. Slaine's warp spasm ability is badass & kind of terrifying at the same time. The only reason I'm not giving this book 5 stars is that I assumed the artwork inside would be like the cover. So when I opened it up I was met with 100% black and white, very retro looking artwork. I suppose this is just due to the fact that I'm a young whipper-snapper who grew up in the 90's reading Spiderman & X-men that were awash with all the colours of the Mutant Gene. But overall Slaine: Warrior's Dawn was very entertaining. A refreshing & different look into another part of the insane & violent 2000ad universe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slaine - Irish Hero 22 Mar 2006
By Keith A. Mooney - Published on
One of my all time favorite 2000AD characters, while the artwork is not up to the Simon Bisley progs of later years, this well drawn B&W book gives you lots of insights into Ukko, Niamh, and The Lord Weird Slough Feg. The book also has a nice guide to Slaines world, with a map and a glossary of words and terms used throughout the book. Originally printed in 1983/1984. Progs 330-360

4.0 out of 5 stars Zarjaz! 11 Sep 2007
By Monster X - Published on
Slaine from the begining... and its pretty cool, before simon bisley, glen farby, greg staples and clint langley (a few among many others) left their artistic mark on the series, Mike McMahon and Massimo Belardinelli worked with writer Pat Mills to create one of 2000 A.D.'s greatest chracters since Joe Dredd!

The story of slaine takes place in the land of the young(ireland), where magic and life by the sword, ax, spear and sheild rule supreme. Join slaine and his sleaze little personal little pest and scribe Ukko as they battle the old horned god and other strange creatures, demons, witches and the like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction into the world of Slaine 3 July 2007
By Joel Hopkinson - Published on
This book is a great introduction into the world of Slaine. Whether you are a fan of the comic series or into the role-playing game, this book is a great spring-board into the story. I am playing a Celtic based game of D20 Dungeons and Dragons using Slaine RPG and I bought this as a good read for people new to the campaign in order to quickly bring them up to speed. This book also has a useful map and glossary for newbies as well. The artwork is a little varied. Ukko becomes settled into his usual ugly self but although Slaine goes through 2 or 3 different drawings, it still has not settled on the later Slaine style that I know and love. Still, a good read and a worthy start to the whole saga.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 80s comics - Interesting Character 12 April 2014
By Earl Nash - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the better comics from the 1980s that I did not read at the time. Slaine is an interesting and unique sword and sorcery comic character based upon Celtic myths. These are the first appearances of the character from the legendary weekly UK comic 2000 AD. The artwork is well done throughout the book, but Mike McMahon's artwork is especially good. It's a wilder, looser style than some of his Judge Dredd work and almost has a wood cut print look in black and white. The scenes with the Sky Chariot are really beautiful. The comic also has some humor usually tied to Slaine's sidekick Ukko. It's an interesting comic world writer/co-creator Pat Mills has created in Slaine. I'd say fans of the old 70s Marvel Conan comics and fans of sword and sorcerer fantasy novels would find things to like about Slaine and this collection.

Just as I remember when I read these stories as a kid along with Judge Dredd, ABC warriors and all the other 2000AD comic characters
