Having finally acquired the sacred weapons and approval he needed from the three other kings of Tir-Nan-Og, Slaine ascends to the position of High King - to immediately face his greatest threat, an army of Drunes, Sea Demons and other foul creatures. Now, as High King, he must also lead his people away from the darkness and mystery of their old religions, back to a oneness with nature... not that he won't be breaking a few heads along the way...

Slaine: The Horned God - Part Two sees 2000AD's popular Celtic hero return with a vengeance.

Simon Bisley's artwork is as sick and twisted as usual - what did you expect. And Titan have done a great job reprinting his work in full colour.

This collection also sets the scene up for the reader - refreshing their memory on the events which have already been told. I, for one, was glad of this as I was a little rusty on what had gone before.

Slaine is one of those characters that took time to grow on me. I must admit that I used to skip his pages in 2000AD, but have become more fond of him as I have grown older. Though funny, beautifully illustrated and almost spot on with the writing, The Horned God - Part Two has something missing - and I can't quite put my finger on it.

For some reason I still don't enjoy reading about Slaine as much as I do about Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper or many of the other classic 2000AD characters.
