Dark Horse Comics has decided to let readers know that Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius, the new series by Frank Miller, will contain nudity. And the retailer preview they sent out may not have included any of it.
But the fact that they have to say this about a Frank Miller comic book despite already giving it a Mature Readers label, and it being a prequel to his original 300 comic book indicates that it might have an awful lot of nudity…
It has also dropped in price from $5.99 to $4.99. Well, there are probably fewer clothes to draw.
