Because there's a certain strand of nonsense that seems increasingly out of place over on the old Workblog.

Over at CBR we have the preview of the first five pages of THREE, the comic I’ve written about the Spartan Slave hunts.

It’s a little overture for the whole comic, a little slice of the setting. It’s the only place we use an omniscient narrator, for example. In a real way, it’s the opening of Jaws. Here we show what the Shark does. Here we show why swimmers should be afraid.

THREE is the story of three helot slaves who go on the run and the terror state that sends 300 of the greatest warriors in history after them. It’s a heroic story about the people who never got heroic stories. 

THREE is out on Wednesday.
