The issue gets much worse once the focus shifts to the Holly/Harley and Karate Kid threads. The former has always been among Countdown's worst, and there's no saving it this late in the game. The latter hasn't been that bad, though it was a little off-putting that the writers resumed the story from the exact point where they left off a month ago. There's something to be said for 52's strict timeline. My real problem, though, was a cliffhanger that manages to push Countdown into even more directions I wish it wouldn't go. If this is what happens when the plan starts to come together, I don't want any part of it. Read Full Review

Countdown to Final Crisis #21 continues the downward trend as each issue just gets worse and worse. I can't imagine that Countdown can get much worse that it currently is. However, I'm sure that DC will find new and creative ways to suck on this title with the remaining issues. I definitely wouldn't recommend this title to anyone at all. This title is not worth your hard earned money. Go buy Daredevil or Captain America instead. Read Full Review
