NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Frank Miller - One In 300

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, filling a bit of a gap hereon IADW. I love Frank Miller's Dark Horse Comics work. Martha Washington, Sin City and 300 especially, but have rarely got to post about the comic versions of either. Until now.

Now I dig the 300 blockbuster, but is it me or does that image look more cinematic than many of the stills from the actual film? Let alone point out what a great cast Gerard Butler was as King Leonidas. The faces are almost identical! Movies 1, Comics 2. Gotta love that ratio.

  1. Dan, did you like Rise of an Empire?

  2. Hey Dave, it went pretty much straight to DVD here. As I won't buy a DVD I haven't seen and I don't belong to a Blockbuster or Video Ezy, I'm just waiting to see it on telly.
