Slaine Books of Invasion Vol. 3 - The conclusion,
This review is from: Slaine: The Books of Invasions: v. 3 (Rebellion 2000ad) (Hardcover)
Unfortunately this third volume of the Books of Invasions marks the end of this amazing trilogy. Pat Mills delivers a stunning conclusion to the battle of the Fomorian Sea Devils against Slaine and the Atlantean tribes. At the end it comes to a clash of titans. I'm referring to Slaine vs Lord Odacon. Undoubtedly Lord Odacon will find himself kissing Slaine's Axe. But can a Sea Devil be truly defeated? Following the climax of the main story there's an epilogue entitled "Carnival". It's a treat for the fans and I must say I enjoyed it very much. Slaine decides find out the whereabouts of his son Kai. It's also the reintroduction of Ukko the dwarf. Clint Langley delivers again and I've noticed the evolution he's made between the first album and the second and third one. Langley's mix between drawing arts and computer techniques is amazing. The whole atmosphere breaths realism and fantasy in a way you haven't experienced before. Mind blowing and crafted with so much detail, you find yourself sometimes watching a single frame with your mouth half opened and gasping for air. So again; it's unfortunately the series end here. I wouldn't mind the continuation of Slaine by these two formidable lads; Mills and Langley!
To all the fans; own this trilogy and treasure it for it is a milestone of the same proportions as the period Mills worked with Simon Bisley on Slaine.
