The Ulster Cycle: Ness now available as a book!

Edited on 6 October 2008 to add:

I’m afraid that after issues have arisen in the printing of The Ulster Cycle: Ness, I have withdrawn the current edition from sale at Lulu. I am exploring other avenues for publication and will update further when I’m able to.

The Ulster Cycle: Ness, first serialised as a webcomic on this site, is now available as a book!

Ireland, the Iron Age. When the king of Ulster is powerless to stop a murderous outlaw, his daughter Ness turns outlaw herself to hunt him down. But with war looming between the kingdoms of Ireland, will her father’s house still be there to come back to when the job’s done?

Praise for The Ulster Cycle: Ness

What an impressive debut. It’s as though writer/artist Patrick Brown found a window looking into the past, and he decided to smash it and climb on through. Here is a thoroughly modern form of Irish storytelling that makes the past very much the present.

It’s as though he were standing over the still bleeding and battered corpse of Darby O’Gill with the murder weapon in his hand – his weapon of choice a biro. This is not murder. This is a beautiful act of mercy.

Finally a comic from Northern Ireland that can be read anywhere – Patrick Brown weaves a wonderful tapestry of rich characters,intertwining centuries-old legends with 21st Century artwork to die for. Wonderful!
