Frank Miller’s ‘Xerxes’ Lithograph Announces ’300′ Prequel [Updated]
A new Frank Miller lithograph has just been offered for pre-order on the Dark Horse website, featuring Xerxes, the Persian God-King from Miller’s “300,” a testosterone-laced reinterpretation of the Battle of Thermopylae that was adapted into a 2006 film by Zack Snyder.
“Miller is preparing a follow-up now titled ‘Xerxes,’ which begins about 10 years before the events of ’300,’ and Snyder has expressed interest in it as a film property as well. ‘It’s the battle of Marathon through my lens,’ Miller said Wednesday. ‘I’ve finished the plot and I’m getting started on the artwork.’”
