Themistocles coming to a theater near you!

Last year I reported that Frank Miller (author of the comic 300) was doing a prequel to the story of Thermopylae known as Xerxes. This year more information is starting to hit the media about the project, namely that there will be a movie based on the new comic called 300: The Battle of Artemisium, and that the comic (and hopefully movie) will co-star...Themistocles!

300: Battle of Artemisium

Personally I couldn't be more stoked about this. Sure, the 300 series is horribly inaccurate, and of course I don't blame people for being angry by the over-the-top portrayal of both sides, but hopefully this new project will get people interested in real history.

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Interested? Do share!

I'd better write faster, lest I be accused of ripping off Frank Miller for Serpent of Hellas . . .
