    Overall, this is a great start to what should be a decent mini-series. I hope the Forerunner story picks up a bit more as the dynamic between Adam Strange, Animal Man and Starfire has been expertly built and executed. Beechen manages to continue that trend. If you are a fan of Countdown and 52 you should definitely get this issue. Whether you were a fan of 52 or not, the Strange/Animal Man/Starfire story is sure to please. Read Full Review

    Countdown to Adventure #1 was a fun read. The main story by Beechen was definitely more enjoyable and immediately hooked me. Beechen manages to build off the magic of 52 with this characters and I am confident that we are in store for a great story. I'd certainly recommend getting Countdown to Adventure if you were a fan of the lost in space plotline in 52. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed both stories for different reasons and feel it justifies the price tag attached to this issue. The first one for its ties to 52 and the new adventures of those characters and the second story for its revelations pertaining to Countdown and the Forerunner race. Others who are only interested in one of the two stories may feel burned by the hefty price though, especially considering the lackluster art in the Forerunner story. If the rest of the Countdown miniseries end up like this one, this will mark the first time an event's tie-ins will far surpass the main book. Read Full Review

    So, if you liked the space heroes sections in 52 and desperately want to know what theyre up to now, give the book a glance, but dont expect to be blown away. Unfortunately, youll have to shell out an extra dollar for back-up material that will probably be enough to scare you away from Read Full Review
