PRESS RELEASE –
To celebrate the triumphant return of Frank Miller’s seminal work, Dark Horse is excited to reveal gorgeous art from his upcoming comics series Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander. Additionally, as a special “thank you” to fans, Dark Horse is offering attendees the opportunity to meet comics legend Frank Miller at San Diego Comic-Con! On Friday, July 21 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m., Dark Horse will welcome Miller for a special signing at booth #2615 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander is Frank Miller’s comics prequel to his epic 300, the inspiration for the motion picture directed by Zach Snyder. Alex Sinclair (Dark Knight III: The Master Race) joins Frank as colorist on the highly anticipated series. Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander will launch in 2018. Xerxes rose to power in fifth-century-B.C. Persia and became known as “The King of Kings,” eventually raising and leading a massive army intent on ruthlessly destroying the hated Greeks who killed his father. Xerxes seeks nothing less than to become a god himself—and achieves his wish!
The Frank Miller signing is an exclusive wristband-only event. Wristbands will be distributed by a random drawing in the Dark Horse Comics booth on both Thursday and Friday mornings while supplies last. 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.
