Zero Tolerance

Quando Capitan Europa fa un’ offerta a Janelle Jeanneret che non può rifiutare, la modella Francese non esita ad arruolarsi con L’ Iniziativa per la Giustizia Globale. Dopotutto, provvederanno un appartamento stupendo in Bruxelles, una nuova divisa, e addirittura un nuovo nome appariscente. Le offrono anche di pagarle una valanga di soldi... esente tasse! Ma c’è un tranello? D’altronde, come farà un groppo di superumani basato in Europa a stabilire giustizia globale?

Alt★Hero e il primo in un eccitante nuova linea di fumetti di supereroi di Arkhaven Comics.

TOLLERANZA ZERO is our first foreign language translation, and it was an interesting challenge because we needed a different font that had all the necessary accents. We also needed to make sure the various text strings fit inside the existing speech balloons. We ended up going with one that worked out so well that we will probably switch to it for future English editions. This is, of course, a digital edition for Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.

The next foreign language edition will be French, followed by German. We will get these into print eventually, but it is not an immediate priority. It's free on Kindle Unlimited, so why not download a copy and brush up on your language skills. And on the topic of Alt★Hero, I should probably mention that more than 15 percent of the available Gold Logo editions for the first issue were sold on Day One, so if you would like one for posterity's sake, don't wait too long.

UPDATE: #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Foreign Languages > Italian > Comics & Manga

This is great! Congratulations on starting the translation initiative, Vox and team.

This is very fortunate for me, as I am currently learning Italian. Jo vogghiu fare un edizion sicilianu.

It's very racist you din't publish it in Bantu first.

Blogger Al K. Annossow May 31, 2018 9:48 AM  

If I can free up some time, I'll volunteer to do a translation for both the comics and for the 16 points. I believe Texan would be a very good addition to the list of translations.

Captain Europa: Wayull, look here, little lady...

VFM 424 here--talk about raaacisss! When is the Ebonics version coming out?

It's comment sections like this one that put a smile on my face and make the day easier. Thank you all for the sarcasm and humor.

Blogger Al K. Annossow May 31, 2018 10:18 AM  

Hmm. I'm rethinking the practicality of a Texan translation for the comics. All those extra syllables may not fit into the existing speech bubbles.

There also has to be an additional joke that confuses someone who draws with someone who drawls, but I can't quite find it.

This is awesome. Sets Alt-Hero apart from all the indie stuff out there.

Blogger James Dixon May 31, 2018 10:43 AM  

Somehow I suspect there is a very limited market for a Latin translation. :(

Not that I could talk her into it. She's got more going on at the moment that she can easily get done.

I will be in France in 4 weeks, and be there for roughly 6 weeks... any chance to get some print editions to hand out as gifts?

Blogger Unknown May 31, 2018 11:04 AM  

Please, fix it, use "Capitan Europa". "Capitano Europa" is completely unsound.

When do you expect the T-Shirts to go out to backers?

Blogger English Tom May 31, 2018 2:37 PM  

Bueno.

Blogger VD May 31, 2018 3:56 PM

When we ship the first collection.

Blogger Lara May 31, 2018 4:46 PM  

Cool! Too bad it contains many mistakes... Would you like some help with the translation?

Blogger Michael Maier May 31, 2018 5:15 PM  

Cool.

When they're in print, I'll be getting the US, Italian and German versions of all the comics.

Blogger The Observer May 31, 2018 6:06 PM  

A generally warm review:

Thanks, but they're all fixed now. I'm far from fluent, particularly when it comes to writing. A native speaker cleared up the grammatical infelicities and whatnot.

If there is enough interest, I can help.

10. And 20. What a great way to start learning Latin...
