Dark Horse to release a Xerxes Lithograph with Art by Frank Miller


Ever thought, “What this house need is a giant, incredibly racist, and weirdly homoerotic image of a legendary Persian king”?

Well, Dark Horse have exactly what you need, as they release a lithograph of one of Miller’s less than culturally sensitive images, yep, that’s right, it’s Xerxes I, as depicted in 300.

The 24″ x 36″ lithograph will be priced at $25 USD for the regular edition, and $100 USD for the limited edition, signed variant.

Here’s the burb:

Comics icon Frank Miller, creator of Sin City and 300, presents a stunning new lithograph: Xerxes. This 24″ x 36″ collector-quality, fine-art piece is presented on acid-free paper with two special types of coating to enhance golds and background color, and offers a first look at the subject of Miller’s upcoming comics prequel to his record-breaking 300. Xerxes rose to power in fifth-century-BC Persia and became known as ‘The King of Kings’, eventually raising and leading a massive army intent on ruthlessly destroying the hated Greeks who killed his father. Xerxes seeks nothing less than to become a god himself — and achieves his wish! The litho is colored by Eisner Award winning colorist Dave Stewart and is sold exclusively through Dark Horse Comics.

Please note that the ship date for this item may be up 30 days before the listed on-sale date.

* Also available in an ultra-limited edition of 100 signed and numbered copies, at $100.00 each, with a special certificate of authenticity. Orders may be allocated.

* All lithos are packaged flat against backing board and shrink-wrapped in plastic.
