Frank Miller was at it again with the 1998 historically inspired comic 300. The overall plot retells the Battle of Thermopylae, famously led by Spartan king Leonidas. The series generally focuses on the events that led up to the infamous fight from successfully holding off the Persians to Ephialtes’s ultimate betrayal. Since its original run in the late ’90s, the tale has gone on to expand into a successful 2006 big screen adaptation with a recently released sequel that goes further into the tale of Xerxes as well.
