There's a thin line between imagination and action. (Reality is what you really make of your life)
Pat Mills, nicknamed 'the godfather of British comics', is a comics writer and editor who, along with John Wagner, revitalised British boys comics in the 1970s, and has remained a leading light in British comics ever since.
His comics are notable for their violence and anti-authoritarianism.

The story of Slaine began in1983, and was originally intended to be a run-of -the-mill barbarian story like Conan, but at the suggestion of Mills' wife (who also illustrated the first episode) it was from the very start located firmly in the mythic Celtic world of The Land of the Young. The Celtic influence gave the story its destiny, and over the years it evolved into something quite unique in comics, as the character of Slaine himself evolved, and Mills used the character (based on the mythical Celtic hero Cuchulainn) and the strip to present his own ideas on paganism, natural law and human destiny. The strip is still running, detailing the saga of an iron age Celtic berserker and his gradual development from exiled wanderer, to king, to manifestation of the horned god, to his current role as hero of the goddess, fighting her enemies across time.
