We highly recommend you check out your local comic book shop first, as that is the BEST experience for reading comic books.

I also had problems saying Corps as well, but then again, English is not my first language. The thing of pronouncing “colonel” as “kernel” is also really weird. But the weirdest is how only some Americans pronounce “forums” as “forms”, I still haven’t figured out the correct way to say it.

The correct way to say “forum” is “fo-rum”. Though with dialects, people will say words fast, so part of words get mashed, thus “forum” sounds like “form”. Happens with a lot of words.
