Picked up a few months ago, and then, whilst not in the mood for a "proper" book, I remembered this was on the shelf and I hadnt read it yet.

This is Volume 1, the collection of multiple editions published originally in 2000AD. It starts with Slaine and Uggo in a bar, with Slaine depressed and both getting drunk. The story is then told how Slaine, whilst still High King of Ireland, tries to defeat the albino Formonian Moloch, Lord of the sea deamons who are trying to take over Ireland.

Upon his death, Moloch warns of the coming of a bigger threat to Slaine, who is now no longer High King (the council preventing him from fighting).

The book is wonderfully presented, there are some lines that are old favourites that made me smile a comfortable smile when I read them again ("Slaine did not think that was too many"), plenty of violence, blood and gore. The only thing I was slightly disappointed with was the size of the layout - I'm sure some of the images could have been presented "better" with a little more room. Several times I wondered if I had missed out some of the detail of the artwork. Minor I know, but still.....
