With duplicitous dwarf Ukko and his favourite weapon – a stone axe called Brainbiter – by his side, Sláine is a combination of Robert E Howard’s Conan and the ancient Irish hero Cú Chulainn. Headstrong, arrogant, brash, and not afraid to chop first and ask questions later, it is no exaggeration to say that, since his first adventure, Sláine MacRoth has become one of the mainstays of 2000 AD!
