And while the issue’s still a few weeks off, we figured it was high time to get a look at the work of Paul and Pete, so click away. ACTION COMICS #890 hits 6/30. [gallery link="file"]

Hey comics fan, got any plans this weekend? If you're like me you're at a bit of a crossroads during this time of year.
