When a member of the Spartan ruling class visits an isolated homestead of Helot workers, a brutal massacre is only the beginning. KIERON GILLEN (PHONOGRAM, Über, Iron Man), RYAN KELLY (Saucer County, Local) and JORDIE BELLAIRE (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, NOWHERE MEN) unite to tell the heroic story of three slaves and their desperate attempt to escape 300 of the finest warriors who’ve ever lived.
This was a last-minute, impulse buy, and I’m glad I did! Inspired by 300, Three gives us a different look at the Spartans and the world they lead. Their slaves are treated as less then men, but they are, and this issue gives a look at them. It doesn’t totally demonize the Spartans, but gives us another point of view. The art is excellent, and mixes some tight close up work with work in fields!
From an impulse buy, to my pick of the week!
