The Cattle Raid of Cooley: covers

Covers for the first nine issues The Cattle Raid of Cooley, of my serialised graphic novel adaptation of the ancient Irish epic Táin Bó Cúailnge (2008-2014). It’s a war/coming of age story set in the pre-Christian Iron Age. Queen Medb of Connacht stages a winter invasion of Ulster, and thanks to the season and the intervention of the gods, the only opposition is teenage rookie border guard Cú Chulainn. Here’s a review by Shaenon Garrity for The Comics Journal.

The tenth issue is in progress and will complete the story. Biro drawings, scanned, coloured and composited digitally. Click each cover to read the chapter online.
