This story is a great example of how comics can be useful in the classroom. It shows a fine example of how cruel the Klan was. In those days they were falsely glorified. I know the story of a reporter who risked his life to reveal the real Klan with the help of the radio show's producers. I'd love to hear the original broadcasts. Are they available anywhere or on CD perhaps?
This was cleverly more

Let's make Batman Chinese because I'm from Eastern Asia. Wut?

Then you are misreading the review. The reviewer is unhappy with the unnecessary and pointless changes made because the author has Chinese ancestry so she made the lead character Chinese. This is not that the reviewer dislikes Chinese people. Your argument is still a strawman.

The author admits she knows nothing about Batman and has no intent of learning...Yeah that attitude should go over real well with fans. If she wanted to write this sort of book fine, but don't slap the Batman title on it.

Fun story, similar to Baltazar and Franco's other comics, but loosely based on the Smallville TV series and a 13-year-old Clark who rescues townsfolk as the "Superman of Smallville". Considering how well this format does for Raina, this hopefully works out better for Baltazar-Franco than their floppy minis for $3 or $4 only available at comic shops. A few unresolved plot threads in this book sugge more

Can Superman keep Smallville from going to the dogs?
Acts of awesomeness are happening around town. People are being rescued, runaway tractors stopped, and fires extinguished. This is all in a day's work for the hero known only as "Superman." But who is he, really?
Thirteen-year-old Clark Kent knows. He has a super secret-one his parents ar...
