300 Graphic Novel Introduction and 300 the Movie

For Christmas my wife bought me the hardcover version of Frank Miller's 300, which 300 the movie is based on. I read the first few pages and I have to say, it is amazing. Really, really amazing.

I'll paraphrase...

Some Spartans are walking along. They are tired and thirsty. One of them gets dizzy and trips. So, after he falls, one of the other soldiers calls him a name. He replies that he's ready for his punishment. The second soldier then starts beating the soldier who tripped and fell. (A sign of weakness, remember.) The leader tells the second soldier to stop beating the tripper, but he doesn't do it fast enough. So, the leader then heads over to the aggressive solider, punches him, knocks him out, and tells the soldier who tripped to carry him the rest of the way. Of course, the leader also tells everyone they because of this "problem" they cannot drink or rest or relax until they reach camp.


If that doesn't paint the perfect picture of the Spartan army, I don't know what does. If Frank Miller's and Zack Snyder's 300 movie is anything like 300 the graphic novel, it is going to be utterly amazing. It'll be a complete and total smash when it is released in March 2007.
