A Look Back at Frank Miller’s 300 Comic Book
For instance, 300: Rise of an Empire was the not-so-successful sequel to the original blockbuster movie that even spawned a video game of the same name. “The 300 Workout” is an exercise routine comprised of 300 overall reps – designed to turn you into “a real Spartan”. 300: March to Glory was a video game based on the Zack Synder’s adaption of Frank Miller’s comic.
Other releases that use imagery and themes from the original movie are the 300 Shields Extreme and Fortunes of Sparta titles that feature on popular gaming platform Foxy Games. Like the other games, they explore the story through impressive visuals, just like Frank Miller did. To this day, you can still expect to see at least one person dressed as a Spartan soldier from the movies next Halloween. All of this is because of Frank Miller’s 300 – each new cultural product is a testament to the impact of this original epic.
If you’re looking forward to Frank Miller’s new work, you’re in luck. Dark Horse has recently revealed new art from Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander. The highly anticipated companion book to 300 was also written and drawn by Frank Miller, who says that his new book tells the story of the larger clash between the Persian empire and Greece under Alexander the Great.
