Sláine is a comic book hero from the pages of 2000 AD - one of Britain's most popular comic books.
Sláine is a barbarian fantasy adventure series based on Celtic myths and stories which first appeared in 1983, written by Pat Mills and initially drawn by his then wife, Angela Kincaid. Most of the early stories were drawn by Mike McMahon and Massimo Belardinelli. Other notable artists to have worked on the character include Glenn Fabry and Simon Bisley. The current artist is Clint Langley, whose artwork combines painting, photography and digital art. Sláine's favourite weapon is an axe called "Brainbiter". He has the power of the warp spasm, based on the body-distorting battle frenzy of the Irish hero Cú Chulainn and similar to the rage of the Viking berserker (who have appeared as adversaries), in which earth power "warps" through his body, turning him into a terrifying, monstrous figure who knows neither friend nor foe. He is a devotee of the earth goddess Danu.
