And because of this I present you today: Union of Heroes

It's a professionally made photocomic about superheroes - from Germany! With real actors, not toys or puppets.
It is published in english and german and other languages will follow.
Is has a myspace-page, you can follow it via twitter, and an rss will be there soon, too.

So please, feel free to take a look. We are updating since April 2008 and we push out new pages every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The time has come for new Heroes!
The Union of Heroes!

Main character (I think) looks like Doctor Who.

Like Dr. Who? Well, thank you! That's not the worst connotation you can get... Far from it! I really like this comparison!

/TYPOMAN enters the room.

/Page 2: Many a tale begins in an unspectacular place.

/Page 3--requires work on sentence structure.

/Page 4---is funny, and I mean 'intentionally funny' not 'so bad that it's good funny'. 'Breakfast smell' is not really used in English, but it sounds like something I would say when I just woke up. Trouble is, the imperfect translation makes it sound like a case of "Engrish [look it up]" so that may mislead the reader regardless.

/The translation gets better from there.
/Page 14--"He reappeared two days later with" either "a serious headache" or "a really bad headache" [/b]. The latter is more informal and probably suits this strip better.

/Otherwise, I'm interested so far. It's funny and well photographed, though having read to p15 so far I don't know if it'll pull me in yet.
/TYPOMAN has left the room.

Hello Zeevico (aka TYPOMAN!)

Thank you very much for your corrections!
I have changed page 2 and 14 right away.

Page 3 and 4...
Yeah, I know, that the translation there is not perfect...
But the problem is, that I'm not a native english speaker - so I don't know how to translate it in a better way.
And I have asked an english speaker to read everything and she told me that it was ok like that...

If you know a better way of how to write these two sentences - just fire away please! I would be really happy about it.

Hopefully you continue reading some more pages. Just give it a try ok? ;-)

Best regards from Germany!

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of photocomics. I can't quite put my finger on why.
