Superman: Red Son

This was a really enjoyable graphic novel: Superman lands in the Ukraine rather than Kansas and grows up to be the dictator of the Soviet Union - and then the world. I tend to find Superman quite a dull hero, but this altered perspective really helped to explore the character/ archetype, as well as some good political themes. Excellent twist ending as well. Recommended.
