The HC wiki last edited by pikahyper on 04/11/14 01:03AM View full history

The armies of Persia--a vast horde greater than any the world has ever known--are poised to crush Greece, an island of reason and freedom in a sea of madness and tyranny.

A huge epic 0

300 Spartans... a story we all know.  Frank Miller happened to write his version of this classic tale.  It is a story of stories, a huge epic.  A king takes only 300 men and hold off the world.  It is a great story of human determination and pride to protect ones homeland.
