Kurt Busiek's Astro City

Kurt Busiek's Astro City: Life in the Big City by Kurt Busiek & Brent E. Anderson is the graphic novel I'm currently reading. This superhero story features a new group of do-gooders trying to save the world. The first one we meet is Samaritan. He lives a normal life except that he spends most of his day racing from city to city saving people. No one at work is suspicious because he can automatically do his job without really being there.

It's definitely in the tradition of Marvel and DC Comics but with a whole new cast of characters. If you're into super-heroes, I think you'll like it!
