Publisher Dark Horse Comics has leaked a few interior peeks at Miller’s artwork for the series, and Paste is thrilled to debut another spread from the book, along with one of Miller’s concept sketches. The images below will also be available in Dark Horse’s Xerxes ashcan, debuting at the ComicsPro industry event today. Joining Miller on interior artwork is colorist Alex Sinclair, who worked with Miller on the latest installment of the Dark Knight Returns trilogy at DC Comics. The series, which arrives in a deluxe collector’s format and contains 30 story pages per issue, follows Persian King Xerxes as he sets out to conquer the world as revenge for his father Darius’ defeat. Xerxes seeks to create an empire unlike anything the world has ever seen…until the Greeks produce a god king of their own: Alexander the Great.
Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander launches April 4, 2018, from Dark Horse Comics.
