Beware His Power
You know the story: A spacecraft carrying the last survivor of an alien race crash lands in the heartland of the United States, where he's found and raised in the good clean values of a simple, childless farming couple to become a champion of Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Nice fairy tale.

But in the real world, the U.S. government would have had their special ops teams and black helicopters on that farmhouse's doorstep within hours. No way Uncle Sam would let a couple of farmers keep living proof of extraterrestrial life as their favorite son. And what about that spaceship anyway?

This is the premise for my favorite new comic this week, "Supreme Power", written by J. Michael Straczynski, whom many of you may know as the creator of Babylon 5. DEFINITELY worth checking out at your local comic shop.
