The Cattle Raid of Cooley

Ireland, the Iron Age. On the border of Ulster, a young warrior on guard duty faces an epic ordeal. The queen of Connacht and her army, including a contingent of exiled Ulstermen, are planning an invasion, and sixteen-year-old Cú Chulainn is all that stands in their way.

284-page graphic novel, available soon from Beetletongue Books. Adapted from the ancient Irish epic Táin Bó Cúailnge.

“[A] brilliant adaptation of the epic Irish legend …
a violent, visceral and darkly comic tale … the single-
colour artwork [is] raw and frenetic”

Look Left

“Grounded in historical realism… captures both
the over-the-top violence and the bawdy humor of
Irish epics”

The Comics Journal

“An exceptional feat … realistic, extremely well
researched and avoids all the fantasy clichés by
focussing on the characters … effectively capturing
the violent reality of inter-tribal warfare and feuds.”
