Preview — 300 by Frank Miller
The army of Persia - a force so vast it shakes the earth with its march - is poised to crush Greece, an island of reason and freedom in a sea of mysticism and tyranny
Standing between Greece and this tidal wave of destruction is a tiny detachment of but three hundred warriors.
But these warriors are more than men… they are SPARTANS.
300 is a story of war and defiance as only
And yet Frank Miller would have us believe they're better than the cultured Athenians (who're habit...more

Os valores a cultivar são a honra e a glória. Não existem outras opções. A Lei Espartana tem que cumprida, deve ser cumprida como se de fado divino se tratasse: um espartano nunca recua, um espartano nunca desiste, um espartano só luta pela vitória ou pela morte gloriosa. Não é opção, não é democracia ateniense, não é disso que se trata: isto é Esparta.
Much like The Fountainhead, if you saw the movie, you don't really need to read the book. The only difference between movie and book i...more
Rendered beautifully, but not really appropriate for those tenderhooks.
I am not easily persuaded to "waste" my time with comic books as I have been so taught. But there is much to distinguish between it being a time waster, and a glut feast for the mind's eye. It is not going to be made stronger by flipping billboards.
Processing billboards as art might take some practic...more
Okay, so I may have a penance for comics. A well-told story paired with bold artwork is undeniably one of the greatest expressions of art, in my opinion.
300 tells the story of 300 Spartan soldiers as they defend their land from invading Persians. It is a retelling of the battle of Thermopylae.
There's only one major character here, King Leonidas, although I guess you could count his entire Spartan army as one collective character (I did).
In literary terms, this would be co...more
Ad ogni modo. Non che a farlo anni fa sarebbe cambiato, perché la fama di 300 è esplosa con l'uscita del film e da allora tutti ne parlano e dicono la loro.
Dunque ne parlo anch'io. Leggendo 300 ho sempre faticato a scollarmi di dosso la spocchia dello storico, pronto a scrutare e criticare ogni infinitesimale inesattezza storica. Frank Miller ci va molto, molto vicino, ma della vicenda della guerra persiana e...more
This story is dark and devastating, with just enough sarcastic humor to make it bearable. The artwork is incredible. In fact, I just happened to go to an art exhibit with tons of Greek urns and sculpture from The British Museum, and I'd say these pictures could be on an amphora. Simple, striking, minimal,and yet there is minute attention to detail.
King Leonidas and his doomed troop of Spartan warriors will haunt me for a very long time. (It do...more
That being said, there is little character development. Miller is his usual offensive self here, with ster...more
I am not really a graphic-novel fanatic but I do appreciate great artwork. This book here is really good. Very well crafted Visual art. All the locations and characters are perfectly drawn. The dialogues are very well written too.
Jadi saya putuskan untuk menikmati cerita dari sisi grafis saja.
Novel grafis ini mengambil cerita dari sejarah dan diramu dengan unsur-unsur fiksi.
Secara visual, buku ini mirip dengan film 300 yang sudah dibuat. Penggambaran adegan, tokoh, sampai nuansa warna dalam film memang dibuat berdasarkan gambara...more
