To mark the 30th anniversary of its initial publication, the ground-breaking Sláine: The Horned God is getting rereleased in an oversized Collector's Edition.
Written by the legendary Pat Mills and featuring Simon Bisley's fully-painted art, Sláine: The Horned God – Collector’s Edition is a 208-page (210 x 276mm) paperback, slated to hit shelves on May 20, 2020.
The 2000 AD blog tells us:
"One of the most popular stories ever published in the pages of 2000 AD, The Horned God is a heady mix of Celtic mythology, extreme violence, and beautiful artwork.
Originally published in 2000 AD in three instalments between 1989 and 1990, as well as Mills’ fascinating characters and saga-like storytelling, the stunning enormity of Bisley’s work on the series cannot be understated, with epic battles and vast landscapes evoking everything from the work of Frank Frazetta to Gustav Klimt.
The Horned God sparked a revolution in sequential comic books and spawned a multitude of imitators, but even after three decades Mills and Bisley’s masterpiece is as fresh and startling as it was when it was first published as a weekly serial."
