Frank Miller Talks to the LA Times About his 300 Prequel, Xerxes


Well, you’ve probably seen the artwork already, but Frank Miller confirmed earlier today that he is in the middle of working on a 300 prequel, called Xerxes, which will focus on the reign of the legendary Persian king.

Miller tells the LA times that his Xerxes will be a six-part tale with each installment released in individual comic book issues beginning next year, to be published by Dark Horse Comics.

“The story will be the same heft as ’300′ but it cover a much, much greater span of time — it’s 10 years, not three days,” Miller said. ”This is a more complex story. The story is so much larger. The Spartans in ’300′ were being enclosed by the page as the world got smaller. This story has truly vast subjects. The Athenian naval fleet, for instance, is a massive artistic undertaking and it dwarfed by the Persian fleet, which is also shown in this story. The story has elements of espionage, too, and it’s a sweeping tale with gods and warriors.”

Well, who’s up for reading six issue of Miller attacking the history of the Middle-East? Remember his idea for Holy terror, Batman! ? Well, I’m pretty sure this is where he took his incredbly racist views, after DC slammed the door in his face.
