Deconstructing Comics #414: Slaine the Horned God: Kiss his Axe!

SlaineBig sweaty muscles, huge breasts, decapitations, and general dark ages carnage. Sounds like another everyday barbarian comic. That is, until you find out about the feminism, Celtic folklore, unreliable narration, matriarchy, humor, and unpredictable art. Kumar and Dana hew and cleave their mighty battle axes through Pat Mills and Simon Bisley’s 2000 AD classic Slaine The Horned God.

We also get our special April 1st correspondent La-me Jocare to gather the news bits for us which include: Stan Lee is not Stan Lee, Superman/Batman movie will have every DC character ever in it and all Marvel comics will be labeled as #1 every week. We didn’t vet La-me’s stories due to a time crunch so take them with a grain truckload of salt. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
