If you’re a fan of comic books, Frank Miller is a name you’ve probably heard many times. Miller is considered by many to be one of the most prolific creators in the comic medium.

Miller’s work on Daredevil from 1979 to 1983 was for many readers their first introduction to the gritty world of Matt Murdock. While his re-imagining of Batman with The Dark Knight Returns released in 1986, changed how comics were viewed by not only fans, but layman as well. His version of Batman replaced the campy version and brought about the hyper realistic and darker adaptation seen in many films involving the Dark Knight.
Frank Miller’s storied past along with the many other titles under his belt between now and then, Frank Miller returns to the rich universe of 300 with Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander, a five part mini series from Dark Horse Comics.
