Official Press Release
During America’s darkest hour, Mark Millar and Tony Harris draft the newest generation of superheroes this June in the bombastic first issue of WAR HEROES!
“WAR HEROES is everything I’ve been leading up to with CIVIL WAR, ULTIMATES, THE AUTHORITY, KICK ASS and WANTED,” said Millar. “In a way, it’s the culmination of superhero concepts I’ve thus far only dreamed about, brought to fruition due to Tony’s artwork beautiful line work and the unique creative freedom Image Comics provides. Consider this our ULTIMATES 3.”
In an America not too far off from our own, terrorism has scorched the Earth. Our once great nation has shattered into a bastardized, third world version of its previous self. When traditional tactics prove obsolete in this new country, America’s military force turns to the last weapon with any hope of – superhumanity.
Millar continued, “WAR HEROES is a grand step away from superheroes as you previously perceived them. Tony and I are doing this without any restriction, completely uncensored, taking superheroes to their next evolutionary step.”
WAR HEROES #1, a 32-page comic book for $2.99, will be in stores June 25th, 2008.
