I was actually thinking of that mini-series Marvel did with Gotham Entertainment Group in 2004 called Spider-Man: India, where the Spidey mythos was re-imagined for Indian audiences. I don’t know how successful that was, but it appears DC are broadening their reach too. As announced on DC’s blog the Justice League of Amercia will be teaming up with The 99, an Islamic group of superheroes from Teshkeel Comics. The writer will be Fabian Nicieza who is no stranger to either universe. No artist or any other details have been announced as yet, but I’m sure once it hits stands, it’ll grab a few headlines. It’s actually a good idea. I don’t know if Gotham continues to translate superhero comics for the overseas market (their web-site is “under construction” which is rarely a good sign) but I’d safely assume Eastern readers aren’t as familiar with spandex wearers as English speaking readers are, so there’s definite potential.
