Kieron Gillen And Ryan Kelly Launch THREE From Image Comics


Dan Hart writes for Bleeding Cool;

Kieron Gillen returns to Image, where he & frequent collaborator Jamie McKelvie publish Phonogram, with a new creator owned mini-series: Three, featuring art by Lucifer alum Ryan Kelly, currently drawing Saucer Country at DC

Three looks at the truth behind the legend of the Spartans and sees through the myth of their almost superhuman soldiers, focusing on three Helot slaves, fleeing their warrior masters.

Gillen explained his motivation behind the book as while many people think of the film 300 when anyone mentions Spartans, the fact of the matter is that for every Spartan warrior, there was a team of Helot slaves helping him prepare for battle, training, arming him, healing him. For all their bluster of being the free people of ancient Greece, they had more than their fair share of slaves who don’t seem to warrant a mention in popular culture when it comes to events such as Thermopylae.
