It comes down to this: three versus three hundred at the border of Sparta. The men who'd keep them slaves versus the three who would be free. The historical epic reaches its bloody denouement. The end of a story, the start of a legend.
There's a joke in here somewhere about how you probably didn't cover the Helots during your sixth-grade unit on Sparta either, but I'll abstain. If you were unlucky enough to miss out on "Three" month-by-month, you should really pick it up in trade. It's been phenomenal. Read Full Review
While there were some minor personal issues with some relatively minor aspects of this book, Three #5 was generally a terrific close. While it would be wonderful to see more from this creative team on this very title, they told a damn fine story and pulled it off well in every respect. This last issue had some particularly powerful moments and the parallels with the battle of Thermopylae provided a fantastic framework to end the story. Overall, this was another great book in a series that was far too short! Read Full Review
