Art transcends political inclinations. Well maybe not his, but I thought the 300 was good art and didn't care if Unitus was a republican or not along with 99.99 percent of other people too. It's just insane to think otherwise.
None of that is relevant to the argument that a work of historic fiction should not portray history dishonestly in order to advance an anti-democratic philosophy.

300 was an interesting comic in how it used two page spreads exclusively to tell the story.

But it certainly isn't art in any ways.
Of course it was art. It just wasn't good art.
