Marvel has sent us a preview of Justice League #11, in stores May 1. The comic is written by Grant Morrison with art by Ethan Van Sciver. You may remember the cover of this comic, which features the Justice League drawn using classic Japanese imagery. This makes a lot of sense, since Hong Kong, where the comic takes place, is relatively near Japan geographically.
Wait, what's that? Oh yeah, it actually makes no sense at all, and is basically racist. You can read all about it here.
Jeeze, Marvel. Don't you have anyone checking stuff like this? Seems like a very obvious mistake to catch. Just because two things have something in common doesn't make them the same.
Enjoy the preview:
