Staff Pick: Kannagi Volume One

The goddess Nagi has arrived, and she wants you to worship her! Nagi, the local guardian spirit of the town of Kannagi, has fallen on hard times.

Still, her mission remains as important as ever -- she must cleanse the land of dangerous impurities.

Truth, Justice & the Global Way?

There was a surprise twist hiding in this week's special anniversary issue of the original Superman title, Action Comics #900. After an incident in the Middle East prompts criticism of Superman's actions and accusations of American interference, Superman decides to solve the problem by renouncing his US citizenship.

On balance, it makes sense -- we've often heard Superman refer to Earth as his adopted home, rather than just America. But this is sure to cause some eyebrows to rise and fingers to wag south of the border... making Action Comics #900 even more collectible than it already is! We still have a few copies left at Curious Comics -- grab 'em while they last!
