About the 300 Comic Book

From Wikipedia, this is an entry about the "300" comic book by Frank Miller. It is the basis of "300" the movie coming out in March 2007...

"300 is a graphic novel, written and illustrated by Frank Miller with painted colors by Lynn Varley. It depicts the Battle of Thermopylae and the events leading up to it from the perspective of Leonidas I, king of Sparta. The comic, however, takes great liberties in its narrative, for example depicting Xerxes I of Persia as a bald black man with piercings and the traitor Ephialtes of Trachis as a hunchback. The comic was particularly inspired by the 1962 film, The 300 Spartans, a movie that Miller watched as a young boy."

p.s. "Comic book" is hardly fair. I'd call it what it is ... a graphic novel!
