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.

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. :)
