    At this point, I'm very glad Grant Morrison is doing such a stellar job of pitching Final Crisis to his readers. This botched weekly series has failed over and over to do anything of the sort. Here at the end, it gives almost no indication that a Crisis is brewing in the first place. With 12 months of boredom leading up to a fizzling payoff and no tangible connection to what will likely be DC's biggest book in many years, I can only say that Countdown has proved itself a failure on nearly every front. I hate to say it, but I'm glad I won't have a weekly DC book to look forward to over the next couple months. I need a break. Read Full Review

    Countdown to Final Crisis #1 was a fitting ending to what has been a dreadful title. This issue was completely unimpressive and did nothing to get me excited for DC Universe #0. DC needs to use DC Universe #0 to drive a stake through the heart of Countdown. The more DC separates Countdown from Final Crisis the better. No fans will get excited about Final Crisis if they get the feeling we are just going to get more of the same crap that we got in Countdown. Read Full Review
