    While Millar's typical superhero stories often fall into the "love it or hate it" category, War Heroes seems primed for a more universal appeal amongst adult readers. Image has a surefire hit on their hands as long as the author sticks to his unapologetic guns. War Heroes could easily become the next Wanted, albeit more pertinent, so color me infinitely intrigued.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Jul 21, 2008

    Millar seems to be a very busy man these days. In addition to his other creator-owned project, Kick-Ass, he also has his work on 1985, Fantastic Four and Wolverine to contend with, but anyone who was worried that this final project might be a weak link in the chain will be reassured by this opener. The ideas may be a little familiar, and the plot might not advance beyond the basic setup in this first issue, but this is a solid debut that sets up the book's premise quickly and efficiently, and shows a lot of potential for the future. One to watch. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jul 24, 2008

    It may sound like I am coming down fairly hard on this first issue, but I really enjoyed what it had to offer. The concept is great, the writing is solid, and the art visually attractive. I can't ask for much more than that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Jul 25, 2008

    As for the art, I have to say I am not a fan. The images in the panels feel as is they are stuck on, like the entire comic book is a sticker book. Things simply look put on top of each other in ways that are both noticeable and intrusive. The colours are also washed out and with little variation within the panels, appearing to be applied with the bucket function of the paint program. The colouring is frustrating, at times it seems to be copying the latest issue of Criminal, other times its the Ultimates, wrestling with a decisive palette. A final complaint is the faces of the characters, they have too many lines on them, as if the sketches were not erased and inked instead. Perhaps over the next couple of issues things will become more stable, really adding to this comic series rather than getting in the way. Read Full Review
