Hello! I would be glad if someone can look over my random
idea for the new manga (>__<)

It's suppose to be a cheesy comedy with a combination of
everyday life and superhero comic.

Title -Code: OG3 (pronounced as "ojisan")

A typical middle-aged Japanese business man who's getting bald lately name Isao Sumioka has always been nagged by his family. He is the most hard-working man but has the lowest salary in his company.

However, Isao's life changes when he meets a tough-looking English tutor who really is a superhero name Steve. Steve hires Isao as a new member of the superhero squad because of Isao's ability to gain any kind of power by simply scanning cards (i might change those by something else...) with his "barcoded baldness". Isao gains a confidence for himself as he works as a secret superhero and develops a friendship with Steve.

At a climax, he is planned to save his wife from a thief.

Sorry if someone ever take this offensive, but this comic is about
gaining confidence by turning something negative into positive and
just being himself :]

Great start. I think the job he has is important as it could be a huge source of comedy. Also, the climax sounds more like a dramatic mid-series episode than a grand finale.

The balding motif is a fantastic idea that will really give Isao character and memorable charm.
