One of the two miniatures games I play the most these days is Pulp City. A superhero combat game set in the 1980s in a fictional city in California, the game has a lot of flavor and fun. Early reviewers weren't fans of the fact that you couldn't make your own supers*. However, I was won over by the flavor and the rules. The background is a loving tribute to the genre, and has a lot of personality and charm (also, giant robot monkeys.) The rules really blew me away, though. I've played a lot of minis games over the years, and these took a couple games to get my mind around, but once I got it, man. Quality gameflow with a lot of interesting design options and rewarding tactics. Great stuff.
Here's a link to a good battle report. Plus a review from earlier this year. The first book was just released. A (long-ish) demo game is here, if you like listening to Maciej talk.
* - Word on the street is, this is coming out in the first expansion.
