The graphic novel/comic that became one of the blockbuster hits of 2006.

300 is the story of the Spartan army of 300, led by King Leonidas, as they fight the Persians in a bloody but epic battle.

This is one of my favorite graphic novels, and I wished that it kept going on and lasted longer. I kept wanting more, and for the book to span hours like the movie does. It was so creative and visual and in a style I’m coming to recongnize that only Frank Miller can create.

High recommendations.
