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 its intended format--each two-page spread from the original comics is presented as a single undivided page.

Frank Miller, who also did "Sin City" and "The Dark Knight Returns" (by far his best book) has spent the past three decades putting the graphic in graphic novels. He has an atavistic world view in which men are born to kill and women are there to look hot (and also kill). "300" was the basis for the very violent, very homoerotic movie and I suppose you can enjoy the artwork, while being repulsed by the glorification of warfare. It's interesting that the Spartans have become revered because there were essentially a military state in which war was the highest value and the weak were killed. They were proto-fascsist and their values the antithesis of democracy. They left no art, no culture, no philosophy, just a legacy of kicking ass, which Americans seem to like. Maybe I'm over thinking what is essentially a comic book for boys of all ages.

A great graphic novel...and the movie seems to have set its storyboards directly from it!
