Granuaile Queen of Storms by Dave Hendrick and Luca Pizzari

This brilliant new graphic novel just blew me away. The O'Brien Press have published a steady stream of fab new graphic novels featuring episodes and characters from Irish history and mythology and the quality of the storytelling and artwork is top notch. The story of Granuaile Ireland's Pirate Queen will be familiar to many school children and readers of Irish history and this wonderful book brings that story gloriously alive in good old fashioned comic book style. It's savage, bloody and feisty just like GrĂ¡inne herself and I have no doubt that kids and grown ups will enjoy it equally. A wonderful addition to any collector's shelf.
