I've mentioned it before on the site and elsewhere, but I'm of the mind that the core Superman titles --- Action Comics by Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder, and Superman by Gene Luen Yang, John Romita Jr. and Howard Porter --- are better now than they have been in a very long time.

Fortunately, the creators of the show were happy to oblige: Not only does the world of the show return with the debut of the new animated series Avatar: The Legend of Korra on April 14, but Dark Horse has been releasing a series ofAvatar graphic novels subtitled The Promise to fill in the 70-year gap between the series...
