Product Description

About the Author

Pat Mills is the creator and first editor of 2000 AD. For the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he is the writer and co-creator of A.B.C. Warriors, Finn, Flesh, Nemesis the Warlock, Slaine, M.A.C.H 1, Harlem Heroes and Savage. He also developed Judge Dredd and wrote one of the early Dredd serials -- 'The Cursed Earth'. He wrote Third World War for Crisis!, a politically charged spinoff from 2000 AD, and Black Siddha for the Judge Dredd Megazine. Outside 2000 AD he is the writer and co-creator of the long-running classic anti-war story Charley's War, as well as Marshal Law. He has also written for the Batman, Star Wars and Zombie World series for the US market. Currently Mills is writing the bestselling series Requiem -- Vampire Knight for Editions Nickel of France with artist Olivier Ledroit, and a spin-off series, Claudia -- Vampire Knight, with artist Frank Tacito. Two further French series are in production. Clint Langley began his 2000 AD career with the fully-painted artwork of his co-created series Dinosty, and has also illustrated, Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Outlaw, Sinister Dexter and Tales of Telguuth. However, it is the striking mixture of fully-painted art and digital manipulation on Slaine which are making him a firm favourite with fans! As well as working for 2000 AD Clint has produced covers for Games Workshop and Marvel publications, produced art for World of Warcraft and Magic The Gathering and is the winner of the 2007 Inquest Gamer Fan Awards for Best Artist.

I stopped reading 200AD about 15 years ago but still get the graphic novels from time to time. One of the last Slaine stories I read before this was the excellent Horned God series from about 1989-1990, an epic over 3 books. I didn't expect that this would be as good, I was suprised to find it's just as good if not better. The art and story are fantastic, I highly recommend it.

Being a great fan of Simon Bisley's work on Slaine I took the liberty of ordering the new trilogy entitled "The books of Invasion". Of course knowing that Pat Mills wrote the new saga I was convinced it wouldn't let me down. Mills introduces a new perspective to the universe of Slaine. Once again he delves into the mythology of pre-Irish/Scotish culture. Mills is all about research and twisting the legends and historical facts into new shapes and adjusting it all to the characters involved. So that's how we learn about the rise of the Sea Devils and their intentions to conquer back the land of Tir Nan Og. What can you expect? Atlantean Tribes, Egyptian Queens, Fomorian Lords and lot's of human suffering! But how does it all translate into pictures? Well, I was amazed by the graphic style of Clint Langley. The artwork is sublime and there's a lot of detail and passion put into it. Langley combines the drawing art with modern computer techniques which allows him to deliver stunningly detailed expressions of the characters. There's some realism to it which makes it all convincing. I love it! The atmosphere is vivid and it sucks you right into the world as imagined by Mills and Langley. The story begins with this first volume and after turning the last page you just want to keep reading more and more!!! Brilliant piece of art recommended to all the fans of Mills/Langley/Bisley and 2000 AD.

This 1st book in the Books of Invasions trilogy, sets the scene for one of the finest fantasy adventures you will ever experience!
You have in your hand quite possibly the greatest amalgamation of storytelling and graphic art ever produced.
Each page is a treasure to read, and the book will whet your apetite for the 2nd book.
I only wish that Mr Clint Langley would let me purchase some of his work so I can frame it and display it with pride on my wall.......
We are all of us Slaine: when we see and read about him, we see ourselves?

Well, first of all, I'm a Slaine fan from the early days of 2000AD and have seen any amount of artists take up the mantle. I'm a fan of the black & white strips of Kincaid, Belardinalli and McMahon. Glenn Fabry took the helm in his more than capable hands and then came the quantum leap into glorious, riotous colour, courtesy of Mr Bisley. It took a little getting used to, but the bar had been raised and British comics have never been the same. So you get the idea, I am not opposed to change.

Then came Clint Langley. Now, he is an immensely talented artist and his work is very impressive. But I am not convinced. He fills the page with fire and blood, colour upon colour and dizzying detail. It's too much. There's not enough focus, not enough 'breathing space' to enable us to appreciate the subject. And the use of photoshopped faces is ... just disturbing. Somehow it jolts me out of my suspension of disbelief. He's not bad, he's a good artist, but a step down in quality for my money as regards the ability to build the story through pictures.

My opinion of course, I am happy for other to disagree, that's what a review is for.

Now on to Pat Mills. Again, he is one of the best comic writers around and has a long relationship with Slaine. But I find his ... what shall we call them ... politics? beliefs? ... get in the way of what could have been a good story. The Slaine stories are based very heavily of the myths and legends of Ireland, that is not news. We don't need to be patronised and spoon-fed pagan ideology. I'm a grown-up and can make my own mind up. Like I say, my opinion, and one I am capable of forming without outside influence.

Frankly it gets in the way of the story and prevents a naturally flowing narrative.

For people who follow the Slaine sagas this book is a must, a most compelling storyline that leaves you wanting more. Written by the master himself Pat Mills and with superior artwork from Clint Langley that leaves you breathless at the intricacy and detail which really sets the mood for the story....You wont get a better mix of talent!!

A great tale from the vaults of the galaxys greatest comic, 2000AD.
Original storyline along with the best artwork you can imagine puts this up there with the best graphic novels from 2000AD. Simply put, it`s classy stuff.
