The basic blurb:
Seven friends. Comes with saving “ze wurld,” aliens, a cute Grandma and one crazy Canadian hero, eh?

I've been updating for almost a year now, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, figured it was time to get more opinions. This is a remastered/redrawn/edited version, the original was done in 2003 and my first attempt at a webcomic.

It's weird, the humour is odd, it has video game (and some other geek) references all over the place.

Anyway, thanks for any feedback in advance.

Heh, I noticed that too. Apparently Canadians use English, French, Scottish, German and Italian accents on a rotating basis as they speak. I look forward to the next issue of Captain America as he speaks with Chinese, Spanish, Hindi and Swahili accents (and a thick southern drawl).

I noticed that as well Smile I understand that you were going for a French Canadian accent but it sounds more German to me Smile

I'm a French Canadian and trust me, we don't talk like that even when our English sucks lol

If you can't get the accent right, one option is to do what Menage a 3 ( Warning: NSFW) did with their character Didi. She throws in French words in her sentences every once in a while.

Not the ideal option though - the best scenario would be to get the French accent right Smile but it's a way to indicate that English isn't the character's first language.

I really meant it as a question - if he's supposed to have random accents it's funny but you should push it more if that's the case, make it more outrageous so it's clearly a joke

(i'm french canadian too)

Yes, C.C. is supposed to have random accents from all over- thanks for the advice for that one. (All the characters are Canadian except one, so far.)
