The movie will be done before the comic...
In what has to be a first for the comic world, it appears as though Frank Miller's 300 follow-up series, Xerxes, won't be completed before the release of the film version, 300: Rise of an Empire.
IVC2 reports that there has been no more progress on the series ever since Dark Horse CEO Mike Richardson said in early 2011 that there were only two issues done. The film is set to arrive on March 7, 2014.
Miller has been working with Hollywood commitments, including his job as a co-director for Sin City 2, which will be released on August 22, 2014. He plans to finish Xerxes once his movie commitments are over.
The pages currently at Dark Horse are said to be "outstandingly beautiful". The series will be five issues long.
