Stories about Sparta usually focus on the Spartans. Gillen instead focused on the enslaved people who made up their support system, the Helots. Terpander has a really big mouth, and one joke for the wrong audience starts a slaughter that he, Damar, and Klaros barely escape. Now they're fugitives, and the Spartans are looking to make them an example.

It's well-researched and depicts part of an ancient culture we don't see in media, but it's also a darn good story rather than a dry historical re-enactment. If you read it, definitely read through the notes at the back with all the historical extras. Fascinating to see how Gillen shaped his story based on what was known and unknown.

Full credits: Written by Kieron Gillen, art by Ryan Kelly and colors by Jordie Bellaire. Clayton Cowles handled the lettering.
