Sláine (UK Market)

From Pat Mills 1984 introduction to Titan Book Sláine Book One: Sláine is based on Celtic history and legend and is set (initially) during a legendary golden age of Celts. His world of Tir Nan Og, the Land of the Young, appears in many Celtic myths. This Land is based on maps of Britain and Eire where the North Sea is a landmass and Britain was still connected to the Continent.
The first strip of Sláine drawn by Angie Kincaid, was the first strip to ever beat Judge Dredd in reader's poll, and this first period has been published during 38 weeks without interruption (art by McMahon and Bellardinelli).
