A Page from the Wonder Woman 5 Preview

In which Diana indulges in a custom of her adoptive people...
...Namely, eating a full English breakfast, huzzah!

And it totally is a full English, they have sausages and stuff in the following pages!

Aw, I want a Diana/Knight and Squite crossover. And, as I was pointing out a few days ago, this is another example of DC spreading its characters around a bit more than Marvel's, which are based mostly within New York State, if not NYC itself.

Man...I'm not sure if I like this art. I'd much rather have Chiang, but if we have to have a fill in, I think I'd rather just have the artist draw it in his or her style then see them try REALLY hard to imitate Chiang.

As for Marvel and spreading it's characters around--from what I'm seeing, it seems like they are getting better at that. Half the X-Men are in San Fran, Scarlet Spider is in Houston, Moon Knight is in LA...that's just off the top of my head, I'm sure someone who's reading more Marvel can mention a couple more.

The art here is pretty much Akins' normal style, isn't it?

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2012-01-17 04:35 pm (UTC)(link)
From what I've seen, I don't think so--Akins has more of a realistic style, and Chiang's style is more cartoony. Maybe it was the inking/coloring that really tips the scales, though.

Stan Lee has said he did that on purpose so that he a) could have the characters run into each other more easily and b) wouldn't have to do as much research, as it was where he lived.

Fair enough, so Stan's got an excuse. Doesn't excuse the rest of Marvel's general laziness. It's a wonder New York gets trashed at all, frankly, there are still that many superheroes clogging the place up.

The hell happened to the art?

It's like when Ben Oliver took an issue off from Batwing all over again.

And joy, another issue of 'what Americans think English people sound like'. >_>

Just once I'd like to see superheroes visit England, and not England-Land.

I'm with you there, it grates on my nerves so damn much.

The kind of things in the comments here is pretty much what I expect it to devolve into.

Not to mention, America is fairly determined that everyone lives in Victorian London and everyone speaks in exactly the same way.

Heh, I had a similar exchange with an American friend, who upon having it pointed out that there was more than one English accent replied with "Oh yeah! There's like three right?"

They've remade Being Human too? ARGH American remakes are ridiculous, there's nothing wrong with the English version! But yes, that comment would get quite an eye-roll from me too.

To be honest, what is currently on the page wouldn't bother me at all were it not for all the other times where it *has* been exaggerated enough to bother me, so I just kind of get irritated by default. Not to mention, they don't write out the other characters accents phonetically, and it's often so overdone that even *I* can't understand what they're meant to be saying.

Well I appreciate that, but since it's English-language these are the comics I read too, so it just sucks to be 'othered' or had the piss taken out of me. Or to repeatedly have the amazing realisation that America thinks anyway says 'top hole' anymore.

Geordie is a beautifully ridiculous accent, that would be kind of hilarious on a supervillian. XD

Don't get me wrong, there are worse things (like you say), I meant more that it's annoying rather than offensive.

And yeah, you get a lot of American Anglophiles. :P Still, it would be nice for them to get the accent right and get over the things they like to think we still say. :P

Funnily enough, having now read the whole preview, I don't think it's a bad example at all of how to do it right, if it's necessary to do it at all. :)
