Welcome to the finale of "What's Actually Good!" In this special issue I look at how Kelley Puckett takes a coming-of-age approach to Supergirl to great effect and discuss Amazing Spider-Man in relation to Brand New Day and the series so far. All this, plus the news that there's going to be a Mortal Combat/DC Universe crossover fighting game? How odd.

Welcome to "What's Actually Good," the column that looks at what's to come and what's currently out in the colorful world of comics. In this issue, I resist the urge to use the horribly generic vampire pun 'sink your fangs into this' when I discuss Whedon's Buffy Season Eight and discover that you can actually buy a Green Lantern ring over eBay in preparation for Green Lantern: The Blackest Night.

In this issue, I go to thesauraus.com and type in "imaginative" in an effort to find more words to describe Grant Morrison and discover that Brian K. Vaughan can make even a Wolverine book touching. Go figure. The books in question? All Star Superman and Logan. All this and the usual nonsense. Escapeites assemble!

Welcome to What's Actually Good (In Comics), the column that looks at two books that are, well, actually good, as well as a bit of choice news and thuggery. In this issue I discuss Jonathan Hickman's Pax Romana and take a look at Mark Bagley's upcoming work for DC with writer extraordinaire Kurt Busiek on Trinity. All this and more for your unexclusive enjoyment. Holy torpedo!

Big, huge mega-events from either publisher are generally not the reality-warping, internet-exploding, mind-boggling tales of drama, mystery and suspense they are usually made out to be. I have developed a hard skin and fine cynicism toward them, and tend to roll my eyes more than I experience them popping out of my skull when one makes an appearance. So imagine my surprise when I find myself actually looking forward to Brian Michael Bendis’ Secret Invasion.

Welcome to What's Actually Good (In Comics), the column where I look at what's currently out and what soon to hit the shelves, as well as a bit of news on the side to push up the word count. In this issue, I manage to spell J. Michael Straczynski's name right in a review of his newest book, The Twelve, and rant about David Lapham's brilliant indie work instead of the book I am supposed to be looking at. What the hell am I talking about? Stick around, heroes, and find out!
