But what if you add Xavy to that mix...think of the kid, man...he needs to learn how to read!? He needs lots of reading material! Stock up weekly!kingbobb wrote:
Well, that sounds...odd. Where does Martian Manhunter go?
Does DC really think there's going to be interest in reading about a team of Chinese superheroes that operate in China?
One thing I didn't like where their names. It's like reading a bad translation of a Chinese menu. They took the most literal translations and just put them on the page. The same thing happens to Japanese. There's a commercial that gets played on some of the talk radio I listen to (ESPN, mostly)...or maybe it's an infomercial, for a product called Super Prostate Formula. I can't really remember what it does, because every time it comes on, all I can think of is that it sounds like some product advertised in Japan, but with bad English translation. Like Super Giant Robo Hunter...that's what the literal translation would be, but a better translation might be Mecha Hunter, or Mecha Ranger, which contains the same concepts as the literal translation, but doesn't evoke the clumsiness of a poor translation.
Then again, a good writer can make even lame characters interesting. I'll see what people think of it when it comes out.
But I probably still won't get it, unless it's really amazing. Budget and all. Vicki seriously suggested we only get comics that she also reads, and that's really not a bad thing. Otherwise, I'd probably be spending more than we should on comics.
