Synopses & Reviews
The armies of Persia a vast horde greater than any the world has ever known are poised to crush Greece, an island of reason and freedom in a sea of madness and tyranny. Standing between Greece and this tidal wave of destruction are a tiny detachment of but three hundred warriors. Frank Miller's epic retelling of history`s supreme moment of battlefield valor is finally collected in a glorious hardcover volume in its intended format each two-page spread from the original comics is presented as a single undivided page.
"Form and content are ideally wedded: Miller's writing is stark, his drawings moody and dramatic, and intensified by Varley's grimly appropriate palette of earth and blood. The reader can see and feel the harshness of both the Grecian landscape and Sparta's battle-worshipping culture, as Miller presents the complex historical moment facing the 300." Publishers Weekly
