Mark Millar and Tony Harris have already announced their latest collaboration War Heroes, but all previews of the issue have come in the form of black and white pencil work. Fans of Harris’ work will get a chance to see the the art in color come April 30th when Wizard #200 Platinum arrives in stores.

“Thus far we’ve been pretty coy with the art by only showing my pencils,” Harris said. “But WIZARD #200 PLATINUM will be the first place to see the art fully fleshed out, including Cliff Rathburn’s inks and colorist JD Mettler’s gorgeous palette. I think the final results will surprise a lot of people. It’s truly a huge leap from my previous superhero work, in the best of ways.”

Of course you see the cover to War Heroes in glorious color if you just take the jump.

“WAR HEROES is an awfully big deal for us as it really extends a lot of the themes and ideas Tony and I first started in CIVIL WAR, ULTIMATES, FANTASTIC FOUR, EX MACHINA and KICK-ASS so we really wanted to put a extra large spotlight on the book,” said Mark Miller. “Considering Wizard’s been such a massive supporter of both of us, it was the logical choice for the preview. I think it’ll really show fans just how big the scope of WAR HEROES is, especially since it’s what I would have liked ULTIMATES 3 to be.”

    Wasn’t there a series dealing with soldiers in Iraq awhile back. What happened with that?

    It’s interesting because I think it’s like back in WW2 when they had Captain America, as well as Sergeant Fury (not too sure that was actually a during WW2 series), and now Nick Fury runs SHIELD, egenrally. I wonder if in 20-30 years, unexpected advances aside, we’ll have some character from this series become big. Mind you it may no longer be possible for the comics industry to build up newly established characters in the same way as in the past.
