    1. Are you ready for the 88-page long epic graphic novel inspired by the most famous historic last stand?Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo(I hope everyone here chanted that with me)Into the hell's mouth we march.Set in 480 BC, Frank Miller's 300 retells the battle of Thermopylae: a battle that raged between 300 Spartans and allied forces against the full strength of Persian army. 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 why that [...]


    2. As with many comics and graphic novels, I've seen the movie before I read the book. But despite the extreme pathos, the floods of blood / body parts and the ridiculous make-up/CGI abs, I liked it. 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! nudity!) and give a new coating to an already very well-known point in history. [...]


    3. کمیک 300، که دستمایه ی فیلمی از "زک اسنایدر" با همین نام شد که صدای ایرانی ها رو درآورد، نوشته ی "فرانک میلر" نویسنده ی افسانه ای کمیک.به شخصه، فکر میکنم خیلی از کسایی که کلی سر و صدا کردن بابت این فیلم، فیلم رو ندیده بودن. خیلی ها هم صرفاً احساسات جمعی باعث شد خیلی علیهش موضع بگیرن. [...]


    4. I prefer to die on my feet,than live on my knees.Ever since I've seen the movie adaptation of 300 (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 [...]


    5. Βαθμολογία: 9/10Ούτε ξέρω πόσες φορές έχω δει την ομότιτλη ταινία. Σίγουρα καμιά δεκαριά. Όμως το κόμικ, που στην Ελλάδα κυκλοφορεί εδώ και χρόνια, μέχρι τώρα παρέμενε για κάποιον αδιευκρίνιστο λόγο αδιάβαστο. Εδώ που τα λέμε, μέχρι χθες δεν το είχα αγοράσει καν! Όμως το βρήκα [...]


    6. Spartans! Tonight we dine in hellThe 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: "το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν" (talk as less as you can to be wise) is the moto of these soldiers that fear nothing, even death himself. "Η ταν ή επί τας" (come carrying this shield or be brought up to it") is the other hesitate- [...]


    7. The effort by Dark Horse Comics to make this hardcover edition of Frank Miller's 300 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.


    8. Christ. 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! No one kills a messenger! This is Sparta!).And yet Frank Miller would have us believe they're better than the cultured Athenians (who're habit [...]


    9. Though I'm a Frank Miller fan, back in 2006 I somehow hadn't heard of his book "300" 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 [...]



    10. "Into the valley of death rode the six hundred " No, wait. Wrong battle. Wrong countries. Wrong millennium. But, you get the idea. Small band of Spartans makes a last stand at Thermopylae, a narrow passage which they had held against the massive invading Persian army. Spartans win glory for their heroic and patriotic actions. Trumpets blare! Poets sing! Movies featuring Gerard Butler and Michael Fassbender in very little clothing are made!*The major issue I had with 300 was not so much the story [...]


    11. Zack Snyder's 2006 movie, 300 kept me on the edge of my seat as I watched it in the big screen. Until now, it still is one of my best guilty pleasure movies of all time. The slow motion choreography and the dumb macho rhetoric made me smile for days.So, buying the 300 graphic novel by Frank Miller is the way to go to satiate my desire for more Spartan action. And man I am not disappointed. 300 has mindless fun and glorious deaths. The artwork is the best I have seen from Frank Miller.300 the gra [...]


    12. This book is excellent if you need something to prop your computer up on if you're using it in bed and don't want the fan to get smothered by blankets. I do not believe it has any other redeeming qualities.


    13. Jeśli jakaś wolna dusza trafi w to miejsce w niezliczonych wiekach, które mają nadejść, niech nasze głosy szepczą do ciebie z wiecznych skał. Przechodniu, powiedz Sparcie: tu leżym jej syny, prawom jej do ostatniej posłuszni godziny.• Kocham tę historię, za każdym razem, gdy ją widzę, czuję bezbrzeżny szacunek do Spartiatów.• Mój główny zarzut do tego komiksu jest taki: JEST ZA KRÓTKI. Po prostu: ten komiks jest stanowczo za krótki, bo mam ochotę czytać tę histori [...]


    14. 300 offers a very cool reimagining of the Battle of Thermopylae. Like the famous movie adaptation, the book oozes style (I particularly enjoyed the exotic interpretation of the Persian Emperor and his armies), and the story is action packed and engaging. This is not the deepest or most nuanced graphic novel I've ever read; it is the literary equivalent of an action movie. However, it succeeds on those terms very well. The artwork had some definite high points (creativity being #1), but personall [...]


    15. En realidad un 4,5, pero ya se sabe con .El comic narra a través de 96 increíbles páginas en formato panorámico la batalla de las Termópilas en el 480 a. C en la que 300 guerreros espartanos trataron de frenar el avance del ejército persa de Jerjes I en su avance hacia la Grecia continental y los sucesos que desembocaron en ella, todo ello desde la perspectiva del gran Leónidas I, rey de Esparta, siendo este uno de los episodios claves de la Segunda Guerra Médica, que enfrentó a las ciu [...]


    16. Más Reviews en: entrehojasycapitulos.wordpres"Los dioses nos favorecen, mañana encenderemos un fuego que arderá en los corazones de todos los hombres libres por los siglos futuros"300 es la historia de como un grupo de espartanos dio todo para resistir el asedio del Imperio Persa (con mayuscula). El comic en si tiene una historia interesante pero lo que se termina de ganar los corazones de los lectores es el arte que es increíble.En si la historia es simple, pero te transmite muy bien el sen [...]


    17. 300 was alright, I suppose. I definitely came in with negative preconceptions after reading quite a few criticisms of the movie. In the end, though, the book was just a highly stylized telling of a fable. The story was more important than the characters, and it was interesting for the 20 minutes it took me to read it.


    18. La historia es muy entretenida pero no llegas a conocer a los personajes, ni siquiera a Leonidas, sólo sabes que están ahí porque se rigen por la Ley Espartana, su orgullo y su deseo de una muerte gloriosa. Honestamente la narración no es nada del otro mundo pero cumple con dos cosas, la prímera es que se adecua a las características de los personajes (ninguno trata de ser reflexivo o entender las implicaciones de la guerra. Están ahí más que por la libertad por su negación a ser escla [...]


    19. Confesso: ho conosciuto l'opera di Miller grazie al film "300" L'ho visto due volte, colpita dalla trama, dalle immagini (il senso della vista per me è fondamentale, sono sempre alla ricerca di vita che passi daglio occhi e mi rimanga impressa sotto le palpebre in modo tale da poterla rivedere ogni volta che batto le ciglia flash di immagini che rimangono lì in attesa di ricordarmi l'emozione che mi ha dato guardarli) e dalla narrazione con cui la storia ci viene data. Poi, un cuore generoso m [...]


    20. A radical adaptation of actual history, retold by Frank Miller through an eccentric artwork of knotty illustrations and vibrant colours. I must say that the ridiculous periods of time spent on a single page, just gawking at both recto and verso, is noteworthy too.




    21. الفرق ما بين فرانك ميللر و آلان مور هو الفرق ما بين الحرفي و الموهوب فرانك ميللر صنايعي درجة أولي بيقدر يقدملك حاجة تجارية لطيفة بسيطة فيها فكرة ب أقل جهد ممكن بس يعملها شكلها حلو كدا و روشة ف تقول يا سلام الله عليك وهو فعلا مسلي بشدة من حيث الرسم و الأفكار عكس آلان مور موهوب و [...]


    22. i saw the movie first and absolutely loved it, and after seeing it, i really wanted to read this. there's no real contrast between the two--they're virtually identical. but if you like graphic novels at all, this is a must-have. i have to say, rarely have i seen a graphic novel where the art takes center stage. sure there are comics with good art interspersed within the pages, but the art in this is just other-worldly. it's simply beautiful. some of the complaints i've seen about this is that it [...]


    23. Fun and exciting. A worthwhile story to be told, though the omission of the Thespians and other abuses of artistic license mark the fault of Miller's sensationalism. Like the four-color comics before him, Miller takes archetypes and symbols and drives them full throttle to the epic, gun-blazing climax. Unfortunately, character and emotion suffer. This is not quite the liability that it could have been, as the Epic tradition is often purposefully guilty of the same and 300 fits into this traditio [...]


    24. Frank Miller may be a talented comic book artist, but it should be understood that to align oneself with the Spartans in such a celebratory and narrow way as he has done is to be aligned with one of history's most oppressive and fascist states. Racism and "othering" are essential to his work, unfortunately, and the masses all too readily consume this entertaining "meal" unconsciously of the poison they have brought into their system.The historical inaccuracy of so many elements of the adaptation [...]


    25. If you've seen the movie than this book will feel differently to you. When I first read this book I read the main character as though he was Frank Millers Batman in ancient Greece. It's a good story but not so in your face as the movie is. The tone of the book is different from the movie. The lead character does not come across as an "in your face","ultra-macho", "don't my abs look great when I scream/talk" type of person. The tone of the book helps make for a more believable story. Remember thi [...]


    26. Leonidas and his valiant band of about five thousand (300 Spartans, 3,100 Peloponnesians, and additional helots, Thespians, and Thebans) hold the pass at Thermopylae for as long as possible, but they receive no reinforcements and those who remain all die when Xerxes is shown a way around the pass. Later Miller forgets about the 4700 guys who also died, tells a tale of great valor and sacrifice that will live on forever, never to be forgotten Then a movie was made about the same. Then a joke.


    27. After all this time since the movie came out, people are still going on about controversies that I don't think even exist. So I decided to actually read the graphic novel. The art is not that good, and of course, neither is the story. In fact, the movie enhanced any redeeming quality that this had a few times over.
