Rebellion Announce Reprints Classic Sláine Stories

Sláine Time Killer

If you don’t think this is great news, then you can kiss my axe!

I’ve always had a soft spot for Slaine, the strip first appeared in 2000AD in Prog 330, which happened to be the very first one that I had delivered by the local newsagent. I’ve enjoyed the character ever since and remember these two tales fondly, Time Killer in particular features wonderful Glenn Fabry sequential pages…I miss the days when Fabry wasn’t such a covers specialist.

If you’re not familiar with 2000AD’s most prolific axe-wielding warrior or if, like me, you’re a big fan then these new collections from Rebellion are well worth keeping an eye out for.

Two of the most famous volumes of 2000 AD’s Neolithic barbarian, Sláine, are now available again in brand new editions!

From writer Pat Mills (Marshal Law) and artists Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Massimo Belardinelli (Mean Team), and Bryan Talbot (Grandville) comes a world of mists and magic and the ultimate Celtic warrior!

These classic tales of sword and sorcery, which make Conan look like a boy scout, are now available again and complete with a fantastic host of extras.

In Sláine: The King, Sláine is forced to roam the land of Tir-Nan-Og with his dwarf, Ukko. Ahead of him lie terrifying ordeals that will require all of Sláine’s famed warrior strength if he is to return victorious and claim his rightful place as King! This latest edition, one of the most beloved Sláine volumes, includes a missing three-page prologue and features Glenn Fabry’s most celebrated artwork.

In Time Killer, Sláine, Ukko and trainee priestess Nest visit the fortress of the Ever-Living Ones. These arch-druids may hold the key to the final defeat of the evil forces oppressing Sláine’s people, but a chance encounter hurls Sláine and his allies through time to ever greater battles, threats and challenges! This latest edition featuresa newly-restored cover.
