Men and women working with dogs in military actions has been going on for decades in the United States; the practice actually goes back centuries. And it’s something writer Sheila Keenan and artist Nathan Fox are celebrating in the upcoming graphic novel Dogs of War.

Fresh off his work on Heavy Metal’s Flourescent Black graphic novel and at Marvel on Dark Reign: Zodiac, Fox is teasing Dog of War on his Twitter page with art, such as the panels above.
