The first, "The Book of Scars", is a kind of "What If?" story that was serialised earier this year in 2000AD. As well as celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Slaine's first appearance, it also marks the end of Clint Langley's 10-year tenure as the regular Slaine artist (Simon Davis is picking up the artistic reins next year).
Langley illustrates the framing sequence for "Book of Scars", with other chapters being handled by Slaine legends Mick McMahon, Glenn Fabry & Simon Bisley, plus Langley himself (in the style of the late Massimo Belardinelli). Each chapter is prefaced by a 1-page introduction by the artist (and Pat Mills in the case of Belardinelli).
The second part of the book is "The Art of Slaine", a 130-page review of every Slaine cover from 2000AD, plus many of the covers from the various Slaine collected editions. There are commentaries from the artists involved and other 2000AD fans (including Jock & Garth Ennis).
