ATLANTA, GA – May, 18th 2013 - Sea Lion Books announces the graphic novel publication of the legendary Cuchulainn in a new graphic novel series from bestselling author Richard A. Knaak --THE HEART OF THE HOUND.
At birth he was called Setanta, yet he is known to all as Cuchulainn…the Hound of Cullan. It was a name he had earned as a youth, slaying the savage, gargantuan pet of the Lord Cullan.
His bravery had earned him much admiration, many friends and many enemies. King Conchobar had been a good friend and mentor to his long-lost nephew, having him trained by the greatest warriors, then commanding him to marry the beautiful Emer, daughter of the Lord Forgal.
It is a future many would envy…so long as they remained unaware of the other future also pursuing the young Hound of Cullan. A future rapidly overtaking him…THE HEART OF THE HOUND.
In an modern yet ancient telling of a Celtic legend, author Richard A. Knaak brings to life the greatest hero in Irish literature. Cuchulainn was a legendary fighter, welding his spear Gae-Bhlog, a spear almost as iconic as Arthur's Excalibur. He single-handedly defended Ireland against an invasion by overwhelming forces that rode with dark magic.
His fury in battle was called riastrad and those who were witness to it, never forgot the fearsomeness of it.
