The Cattle Raid of Cooley

Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 | Chapter 4Latest

The Cattle Raid of Cooley issue 1 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.

Now in print – The Cattle Raid of Cooley issue 1, collecting the first 24 pages, with pronunciation guide and notes, now available to buy from the Bookshop.

    Maybe if you could do it in 2 page releases or maybe more. Looking good so far, any chance of inking one of ur pages? I’m curious to see the outcome, and vice versa!

    Keep up the good work.

    Inked? That is inked! Pencils are for wimps.

    I’d need to get a bit further ahead of myself before I’d publish more than a page a week, but you never know.
