Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo I hope everyone here chanted that with me Into the hell's mouth And what a battle it was. This limited graphic series is considered as one of the most acclaimed works of Frank Miller.

You'd know Are you ready for the page long epic graphic novel inspired by the most famous historic last stand? You'd know why that particular opinion persists when you read this book.

The story is so well written and you could actually feel the energy flowing through the words when you read the story. The art is also beautiful in many panels. But some were just average for me.

We all love the movie And now I can state confidently that the movie is one hell of an adaptation of its source material. The movie not only absorbs the story faithfully but also manages to transcend the source material in many parts. Overall, if you are looking for something energetic Read this book! Once again, together now!

View all 4 comments. As with many comics and graphic novels, I've seen the movie before I read the book. Thus I wanted to read the graphic novel. The book is pretty short but it also has just the right length. It's not historically accurate, but I also didn't expect that since its purpose rather is to entertain, shock corpses! The art in this is gritty but beautiful. Before seeing the movie, I hadn't seen this style before what with the brownish colours everywhere and bright red as a shock - alas, since then many have copied it, but this will always be the first and therefore original to me.

There was little enough dialogue. Instead, we are being told a story, a tale as told by the one Spartan who was sent back and I can imagine telling this tale around a campfire. That was a rather nice touch as well. Plus, the book had as I had hoped my two favourite scenes in it: So yeah, despite the historical inaccuracies and the thick coat of pathos everywhere, I enjoyed myself very much and understand why Frank Miller's work usually gets a lot of praise.

Oct 29, Anna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tonight we dine in hell The original graphic novel that inpired the movie of the same name. Graphics are amazing, unique and pioneer for their time; too brutal and too tale-like.

Lines are as spartan-like as they should be: Spartans Spartans! Spartans and their sacrifice still inspires in many forms of art https: The graphic novel itself inspired cinematography for a new animation-like CGI like Spartakos Oct 07, Mario rated it it was amazing Shelves: I prefer to die on my feet,than live on my knees.

Ever since I've seen the movie adaptation of LONG time ago , I've been wanting to read the graphic novel, and now I finally got a chance to read it.

I loved the movie adaptation of this I even liked the sequel , and now that I finally read the graphic novel, I can safely say that I loved the graphic novel as well. I loved the art style, the way the story was told, and of course the characters. But I have to say, even though I loved the graph I prefer to die on my feet,than live on my knees.

But I have to say, even though I loved the graphic novel, I still like the movie a bit more. The reason for that is probably because every single bit of the graphic novel was in a movie, but the movie just expanded the story more.

Sometimes that can be a bad thing, but here it made the story deeper and more awesome. Nov 25, George K. May 12, Nelson Zagalo rated it really liked it Shelves: Apr 10, Yi-Sheng rated it liked it Shelves: This is crazy. Sparta's described as having this nightmarish culture where children are left out to die of exposure, men are ritually abused by each other to demonstrate toughness, the disabled are rejected in spite of their potential skills because they fail to fit into the military system, and international law is null and void this is madness!

This is Sparta! And yet Frank Miller would have us believe they're better than the cultured Athenians who're habit Christ. In the end, the invading Persians who offer to enrich Sparta in exchange for her vassalship sound a lot more like today's America. And the Spartans look a lot more like today's Iran, proud and smart enough to develop nuclear capability and cunning enough to abuse a few British sailors for the sake of political advantage.

Jul 12, Nicolo Yu rated it really liked it Shelves: The effort by Dark Horse Comics to make this hardcover edition of Frank Miller's into a panoramic edition is appreciated. This was the way Miller intended as the individual issues or floppies were a 2 page splash from start to finish. My only gripe is I cannot display it spine first on my shelf with my other Miller works.

But a great read nonetheless. View all 3 comments. Oct 16, Sam Quixote rated it it was amazing. Though I'm a Frank Miller fan, back in I somehow hadn't heard of his book "" so I went to see Zack Snyder's film first - and it completely blew me away.

Maybe because I hadn't read Miller's book or seen anything about the film beforehand, but the film was shot in such a highly stylised way and the story was so utterly engrossing, that I couldn't get it out of my head and is probably one of my favourite films ever.

Needless to say once I found out it was based on Miller's book I sought it Though I'm a Frank Miller fan, back in I somehow hadn't heard of his book "" so I went to see Zack Snyder's film first - and it completely blew me away. Needless to say once I found out it was based on Miller's book I sought it out and devoured it in one sitting.

Years later I sat down with it again one rainy Saturday morning and after re-reading it I decided to set down my thoughts to encourage anyone out there reading this review who hasn't read this book to go out and read it now. The story is set in BCE and is about King Leonidas of Sparta and of his personal guard standing up to a massive Persian army many thousands strong led by the self-proclaimed god-king Xerxes.

What looks like a massacre based on figures alone, changes when Leonidas chooses a narrow coastal passageway called the Hot Gates as the place he and his men will make their last stand.

They will die but not without taking a fair chunk out of Xerxes' force, causing his army to stumble in their mission to dominate the civilised world, and inspire others to oppose and eventually defeat Xerxes. The story is ripe for drama and Miller milks it for all its worth, setting up each of the five chapters perfectly so that not a single panel is wasted. The dialogue is so memorable a lot of it was lifted straight from the book into the film: This is madness!

Come back with your shield - or on it", "Spartans. Ready your breakfast and eat hearty - for tonight we dine in Hell! Then there's the art. If, like me, you were blown away by the visuals in the film, it's only because so many of the iconic scenes were taken straight from the book and Miller's imagination.

Every page is a master-class in comics artistry from the night battle with the Immortals, to the dance of the Oracle, to the bottomless pit in Sparta, to Xerxes' character design, and the Spartans' iconic red cloaks, bronze shields and helmets. The book is printed on A4 pages with many panels taking up an entire page. Miller doesn't waste a single inch of space, filling it up with detail and action while his partner Lynn Varley elevates it with her colours to produce some of the most gorgeous art Miller has ever crafted in his career.

Aaron Albert, a collector of and an expert on comic books, has studied, taught, and written about the comic book genre for more than 20 years. Introduction is a piece of historical fiction, based on a story passed down to us by the Father of History, Herodotus , a Greek historian who first brought the world the story of Spartans that stood against an empire. A young Frank Miller, now comic book icon, was first exposed to this story through a film about the Spartans and their desperate stand against the king of Persia, Xerxes.

The result is a fantastical story told through stunning visuals painstakingly drawn by Frank Miller and painted by colorist Lynn Varley. The Story tells the story of three hundred Spartan warriors, the bodyguard of the Spartan King Leonidas, who together with simple peasant warriors stand against the armada of King Xerxes of Persia.

King Xerxes offers the Spartans to surrender and pay supplication to him as well as the rest of Greece, and he will leave them alone. Time and time again, Xerxes offers a peaceful resolution, but the proud and barbaric Spartans will have none of it, bowing to no man but their own king. The resulting battle is one that has been told throughout the ages, as this small band of men held off a mighty army through tactics, determination, training, and sheer willpower.

What resulted, historically, was a major moral victory for Greece, but at the cost of these brave warriors. Review Frank Miller is a man of passion.
