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.

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?
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.Read more ›
One wild book!!!!
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.
