‘Welcome to the Wound Feast!’
Covering 40 years of Celtomania in 2000AD, this is the ultimate history of Sláine, as writer Pat Mills finally – and with great sadness – brings his saga to a close.
Marvels, Myths and Mysteries
Pat created Sláine with artist Angela Kincaid in 1981, although it would take two years of story and art development before it appeared in print. What began as a personal quest for Pat to make sense of his Irish roots became a magical quest for Celtic marvels, myths and mysteries. And from it, Sláine emerged: a unique hero who stands apart from all other sword and sorcery warriors.
‘Would you buy a used chariot from this dwarf?’
Kiss My Axe is about the exceptionally talented artists who illustrated this internationally acclaimed epic. World-renowned artists like Simon Bisley, Glenn Fabry, Mick McMahon, and more. It’s about the comedy behind Sláine and Ukko’s hilarious and fantastic adventures. And the warp-outs by the writer as well as the warrior, as he battled duplicity, censorship and discrimination to save his story from senseless sabotage.
Kiss My Axe! and celebrate 40 years of Sláine – you won’t think it too many…
