    Collection 30 – Sláine: The Horned God

    Collection 30 – Sláine: The Horned God

    Kiss my axe! It’s the thirtieth in our series of Space Spinner 2000 collections! These collections have all of our coverage for a specific character or storyline, all in one place. They’re a great accompaniment to reading collected versions of 2000AD, or to just hear your favorite thrill all in one place.







    The Horned god has earned a heap of accolades, and I don’t think it too many. It’s the most modern story we’ve collected, taking place entirely in the post-episode 200s, but is so well known that there was really no choice but to collect it as soon as possible. The Horned God is a complex mix of heroic journey, pagan mysticism, meditations on man and womanhood, and critique of the modern comic publishing industry, all combined with amazing visuals that will stick with you for years to come and set the course for a generation of comic artists. as a fantasy story Sláine sticks out from other thrills in 2000AD, and with the horned god, it does so in all the best ways. Grab your dwarf, it’s time to get adventuring!

My favorite podcast!

If you read, or have ever read the UK comic 2000AD, you really need to be listening to this show.

But even if you’re new to this stuff, Conrad and Fox have a fun style and relationship that draws you in. In particular, Conrad’s turn of phrase and ridiculously wide-ranging pop culture references are solidly entertaining, no matter what he’s talking about.

No need to start from the beginning: a good way in would be some of the collection episodes (all covering easily available books), for example:

The Ballad of Halo Jones (12/26/19)

Nemesis Book 1 (3/8/19)

Judge Dredd Case Files Vol 5 (3/22/20)

...which are all excellent comics you should read anyway!
