Firstly a piece from War Heroes as it appears in the Sunday Herald

Hollywood targets Millar’s ‘War Heroes’
Wanted comic creator Mark Millar has revealed that he has had two offers for the film rights for new book War Heroes.

He told the Sunday Herald that War Heroes, a comic described as Full Metal Jacket meets X-Men, could soon be turned into a film.

Talking about the storyline, he said: “It’s set a couple of years in the future. John McCain has just won the election and the war in the Gulf is getting bigger, so they give the troops superpower pills. That gets all the young American kids signing up to fight the Iraqis.”

Millar also noted that films based on comic books are in vogue because they offer Hollywood “high concept” ideas.

He said: “What producers do now is snap up material before others can get their hands on it. They’ll buy a project based on just a title, a blurb and an image. And if they smell what the business calls ‘high concept’, they will go into a feeding frenzy.

I hate Mark Millar so much right now having to give actual favourable reports when I know he’s gonna mess these up. Ok Mccain is President, America is still loosing men hand over fist in Iraq, then a suicide bomber blows up capital hill. America then invades Iran, Long and the short is that they start issuing soldiers with pills that contain superpowers. Arts good, Writing is fast paced. Will Give it time.
Number of the Beast
Now before someone pipes up and says thats the cover for No 8. I’d just like to point out that this series really worked for me. The characters and premise were amazing. I won’t spoil it but get this in trade asap.
