The Cattle Raid of Cooley
|In the middle of the Ulster Cycle, a group of about 80 mostly short stories, is one called Táin Bó Cúailnge, the Cattle Raid of Cooley, which is anything but short. It’s often called an epic. I’ve wanted to adapt it to comics for a long time, and have made a couple of false starts at it, but with The Ulster Cycle: Ness under my belt as a sort of practice run, I think I’m now ready to do it justice. Start reading here, and check back every Wednesday for each new installment.If you’re on Facebook, join the Cattle Raid of Cooley Facebook Group. You’ll be able to keep up with news of the comic, and I’ll be able to get to know my readers.
