Frank Miller will be signing “Xerxes” Lithographs at the Dark Horse Booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2017
Dark Horse is celebrating the return of Frank Miller and his seminal work, Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander. As a special “thank you” to fans, Dark Horse is offering the attendees of the convention the opportunity to meet comic legend, Frank Miller. Attendees eager to meet Frank Miller should keep Friday, July 21 open on their agenda; the renowned comic artist will be in attendance from 12:00 to 1:30:PM. Dark Horse will have Miller at a special signing booth: #2615 at the San Diego Convention Center.
The Frank Miller signing event will be an exclusive event for attendees at the San Diego Comic Con. Special wristbands will be given out via a draw that will take place on both Thursday and Friday. Dark Horse will provide a complimentary 25” x 19” Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander lithograph to all fans that receive a wristband.
Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander is Miller’s prequel series to 300, the award winning comic, that inspired a movie in 2006. Alex Sinclair, known for his work in various Batman comics will be joining the highly anticipated comic, as the colourist, which promises the comic to be just as bold and colourful as Millers other works.
The story follows the rise of Xerses in the 5th century BC Persia, ultimately being known as the King of Kings. For those who may be unware of Miller’s work, Xerxes is the main antagonist in 300, with his character being portrayed by Rodrigo Santoro in the 2006 theatrical release.
Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander is due out sometime in 2018.
