Coming To America Part One.
Time for High Chinks in the West!

I don't know if it's because of the new colorist but Bogdanovic's art is looking way better. Gives it more depth.

Will Kenan gloat about how he was abducted and joined a Superman Multiverse Army while Lex wasn't?

I'm pretty sure Metropolis doesn't look this cool in most comics, but it should.

Robinbot is already better than Steph

Sort of. I was almost right earlier
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ox-Head_and_Horse-Face

...So... get ready for bad times.

Speedsters ruin everything. Why is this so?

>>90525280
There's no fucking way they'll be able to follow up last issue. NSM #8 was probably the best single issue of the year and I don't see anything surpassing it realistically.
>>
>>90525768
Yeah. You know that mob boss who kept himself immortal with the Cauldron? He was one of his body guards along with a dude with robot eyes.

He got some good hits in against the Nebula Man until he was disintegrated because, you know, he tried fighting the Nebula Man.
>>
>>90525707
I dont follow this chinese superman.
Is this really the first time they're meeting?
>>
>>90525783
Oh I barely remember that. Yang did his research.
>>
>>90525703

"I hunger"

>>

Fuck, god is strict.

It's not like there's a heaven in Chinese mythology. It's just the world of the Afterlife where you get judged, your memories erased, and you get reborn into your next life.

>>90525785
Supes and Kenan met at the end of the Multiplicity arc. Even got food together.
>>
>>90525524
Come on Kenan. Everyone knows that a proper foundation and hard work is the path to kicking everyone's ass in xianxia. Shortcuts lead you to an asswhooping from the protagonist.

Yes. She was the young speedster Barry helped learn to focus in her bedroom I think. Also think she was one of the few speedsters that got to keep her Speed Force storm powers. Though Barry thinks they're gone.
>>
>>90526278
she was the last one to try to give the powers to barry when godspeed interupted so she kept them

>>90526315
That brings me back, with Metropolis literally being the city of tomorrow, Gotham being rebuilt prettier after No Man's Land (And Wayne Manor being a fucking castle) and Paradise Island going full magitech with floating islands and being semi-open to the public.

How long did those things last?
>>
>>90526278

>"thicc"
>is actually skinny as fuck

I don't understand you people. Do you just not know the meaning of the word, or something? It's not that difficult a concept, I assure you.
>>
>>90526666
I think they ended around the time Lucy Lane had her baby

Didn't Lex have a daughter? That he sold to Braniac?

yeah she came back when he was President

Bogadonavic's art was good in this issue. The book has been fun, but I still don't get the love for this book that /co/ has.

Do you not see her buns of steel?

It has barely any curvature, you blind Irish fuck. Look at her waist, it's about as wide as Kenan's arm.

>>90525707
How do these people keep getting in here?

He's uh, Superman. Can you keep him out?

You can find Strato and a lot of the other characters by just going to the DC Wiki and looking through the Chinese category. Still, it's more work than most writers do.

I liked Action Comics #975 a lot but this is definitely the best Superman book to drop this week.

>>90525707
First time reading Superchink and damn this was a fun ride, is the rest of the series this good?
>>
>>90537078
First couple issues are very "putting the team together" but as a whole it is fantastic
>>
>>90534820
Hope you actually bought it, this book can't even make top 100 in comic sales now.
>>
>>90525280
This book has me convinced it was all editorial faggotry that made Yang's Superman run fucking suck. I hope they give him more work, dude is fucking great.
>>90525544
I'm picking up some Kon vibes here. I totally wouldn't mind Kenan taking over Kon's spot in the Super-family.
>>
>>90537164
Crossover bullshit has always been the weakness of the Superbooks. Yang was good with Superbro during the fight club arc when he was allowed to just have fun with things. An arc or two freely written might have gotten as crazy as this.

Shit happens though. Hopefully everyone can be comfortable now.
>>
>>90525612
Well, I'm spooked.
>>
>>90526777
its interesting. The book uses Chinese culture in an interesting way and its uniquely incorporated into the story and the Superman Mythos. Also unlike Hollywood, Comics don't make money from China, so theres no China Pandering where the Chinese government is portrayed as prefect and can do no wrong.

Its just something different than the usual super hero stuff and the story and characters are well written

>>90525506
I thought Lex is a good guy now?
>>
>>90545749
He is, he is still just as arrogant, prideful, egotistical, short sighted and hung up on Superman as ever though. Its one of the reasons why he works as a good guy in my opinion and still leaves the door opened for the inevitable pivot back to evil. I am kind of hoping this Lex dies a good guy and pre FP Lex comes back someone and picks up the villain role.

Anyone think that the giant scholarship that Yang recently got might help keep the book alive despite awful sales?
>>
>>90525680
Is that Grunge?
>>
>>90546627
I think that and Jim Lee coming up with the idea will keep it alive a little longer than normal, like maybe 20 issues or so.

Anyone know why the hell we have to wait so long for the first trade? It's not out until July.

>>
>>90547442
I'd like 40, but it seems too unrealistic. I will hope for 20 and maybe I'll be surprised.

The fact that they have like 200k of Batman each month should help the lower selling titles like this last longer, but I just don't know. Lots of other passion projects going like the HB books and Young Animal. How much can they really support?
>>
>>90547615
Aren't those technically other imprints?
>>
>>90547615
I want 60
such a wonderful series
>>
>>90547615
you stfu about cancelling passion projects
DiDio will save us all besides Steph
>>
>>90550521
You're right to ask that. YA is a separate imprint, but the HB books just have DC logos on them and when they get talked about seem to be treated more as a separate editorial group than as an imprint. They'll still have lower sales expectations but I imagine DC has to budget for paying the creative teams and such.

Mostly just meant that there's going to be some limit before they have to start cancelling Rebirth books though. Hopefully this is like Batwing where it goes longer than anyone should expect, but we'll see.

So when this inevitable gets canned because nobody is buying it, think we'll keep seeing more of Kenan in the future? I worry anyone but Yang writing him will just end up shit.

I hadn't been buying this but reading the storytimes, but I feel bad so I'm adding it to my pull list
>>
>>90525352

I wonder, is he speaking perfect Mandarin and humble-bragging?
Or deliberately speaking poor Mandarin to come off as charming and harmless...or actually did just not give enough of a fuck to learn the language perfectly like you know he could.
>>
>>90551845
Shit I mean unreliable translator

What the hell is the point of this retarded comic? A fucking chinese Superman? And the kid is a fucking asshole in the very first issue. Seriously why kill off Superbro and then just have a random ass chinese Superman? They could have just had Superbro have his own comic instead of murdering him. Then we could have Wonder Woman x Supes and Lois x Supes at the same time except now nope they wanna fuck that up too so now we are gonna get some fucking mutant hybrid Superman, whats next Superman does fusion with Val-zod and hes now half black forever? And whats next Wonderwoman ends up with Steve 'i'm a cuck' Trevor or it could be even worse and she will get blacked.

This is lazy pasta for a book nobody buys. Adjust it a bit and post it in the Superman and Action Comics threads.

Wonder Woman will fuse with Lois, as she is actually Lois Blue, where Mom Lois is Lois Red.

This is a shitpost, but I don't mind replying.

Superbro was done with WW. You need to let it go. Superwoman today confirmed that he and Lois are OTP forever and ever in every version.

This particular Lex, yeah.

If I recall correctly, the last we saw of Superdad's--Post-Crisis--Lex was when he obtained deific power, but blew himself up in a fit of petty cosmic rage when he realized he couldn't use it to kill Superman.

He can come back.

Superhero said he only loved WW.

As a language-lorefag I wish Yang would include the untranslated superhero names at least once per issue, in captions.

What's "Super-Man" in Mandarin?.
