    A great outing from Countdown. I'm not sure how anyone who hasn't been following along will view this, but as someone who's stuck with it, this is actually starting to deliver and I can't believe I'm saying it, but I can't wait for next week's issue. Read Full Review

    Major Tom to Ground Control: Dont send me up any more covers like this weeks. Misleading, empty, and means absolutely nothing. Cool image regardless? Matter of opinion, I guess, but you have to admit that even as symbolism its kind of lame. Read Full Review

    Countdown to Final Crisis #15 is a fine example of too little, too late. The writers are now quickly running out of time as we only have fourteen issues left on this title. So now plotlines that have laid dormant are suddenly smashed into other plotlines as the writers scramble to give us some plot development in order to create a dramatic finale for the much hyped Final Crisis.

    Countdown only moves in one direction for so long before an errant storyline returns from the depths of obscurity again. This week, we're reminded that Karate Kid, Una, and the original OMAC still have a mission to accomplish in Bludhaven. How long is it going to take them exactly? This particular storyline isn't necessarily uninteresting either. I just hope the writers wrap it up before it manages to bleed into Final Crisis. It's becoming obvious now that the various Countdown storylines are shaping up to converge in something very derivative of Infinite Crisis. For whatever amount of quality I've come to expect from Countdown, I'd still rather have as little of it touch Grant Morrison's upcoming story as possible. Read Full Review
