Can someone tell me what's been going on recently in Superman comics? I don't get a chance to read them because there isn't a comic book shop/book store near me. Any help would be nice.

In Action Comics, Geoff Johns, Richard Donner & Andy Kubert have just started their run, which has introduced a mysterious Kryptonian child into Lois & Clark's lives. Meanwhile, General Zod, Ursa & Non have just escaped from the Phantom Zone.
In Superman, Kurt Busiek & Carlos Pacheco have started to delve into a storyline in which Arion, an immortal Wizard from ancient Atlantis, has arrived in the present to warn Superman that he is going to cause some distopyian future due to his actions relating to an alien imprisoned by the Soviets for decades.
In Superman: Confidential, the young Superman is just beginning to test the upper limits of his invunerability while his first exposure to Kryptonite grows nearer. Meanwhile, Lois, Clark & Jimmy have been assigned to investigate a new casino that's opened in Metropolis that may be involved in some dirty dealings.
In All Star Superman, Clark Kent went to prison to interview Lex Luthor and got involved in a prison riot. The whole issue was one big discussion on Luthor's obsession with Superman and a great exploration of the villains motives and personality.
And, in Justice League, Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman have taken it upon themselves to reform the JLA, but events have been brewing that are forming a different League than the Big 3 had in mind. In Justice Society, the Big 3 are helping Alan, Jay & Ted track down the various decendants of the All-Star Squadron, who are being hunted down by a mysterious baddie.

How long has it been since you read them? Lex had a baby, was president, then went nuts. Superman died, got married, heads up the justice league, was briefly "electric", fought Dominus and Imperiex, had, like, 4 new Zods introduced, and right now his 2 main cannon titles are written by Richard Donner/Geoff Jones, and Kurt Busiek, respectively.

Don't forget Superman/Batman Bored...where the alien presence behind Blackrock is taking over alien superheroes, and is trying to get control of Superman. Luthor has taken it upon himself to propose Batman and Plastic Man break into the fortress of solitude and get the original blackrock.

Also there was this big crisis and after that John Byrne rebooted the whole line. But you may have already heard about that.

I don't really get to read a lot of comics as a whole unless I go to the Library. The one that really interests me is the one about Chris Kent who is possibly General Zod's son. Anybody got any pictures of Chris Kent & General Zod, Non, & Ursa?
