    Probably my favourite Countdown tiein to date. If you're unfamiliar to the Red Rain Elseworlds story, you'll more than likely be inticed to pick it up after reading this excellent oneshot. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Nov 9, 2007

    This is great Countdown tie-in, its only major drawback being that it is indeed a Countdown tie-in and thus features some forced plot elements. The Search for Ray Palmer is becoming a very well crafted storyline. I hope the momentum continues as the Challengers will next visit the Gotham by Gaslight universe with that story being penned by original Gotham by Gaslight writer, Bryan Augustyn. Read Full Review

    Besides the unfortunate interruptions of Jason and Kyle bickering over Donna or Bob the Monitor explaining their need to find Ray Palmer (we get it, Bob), Johnson crafts a surprisingly complete story that sends this version of Dick Grayson on a tragic and appropriate narrative path. I don't know where any story about this particular universe can go from here, but I don't really plan on returning anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter. For now, I'll take this issue for what it was, an entertaining exploration of one of DC's 52 Earths. Read Full Review
