    Pretty average outing. No major complaints, but nothing noteworthy either. Read Full Review

    Countdown #19 was another dull read. I just can't imagine what readers this title would appeal to. I guess if you are a fan of mindless death and destruction then you might enjoy this title. Even then, having to wade through so many pages of slow moving and pointless plotlines would probably turn off even those fans. Countdown continues to be a weekly train wreck. Steer clear of this title and don't waste your money on the trade paperback whenever it is released. Read Full Review

    In the interest of giving credit where credit is due, I do feel the need to applaud editor Mike Carlin for at the very least getting Countdown's artwork on the right track. With the exception of one recent issue from the increasingly hard-to-look-at Carlos Magno, Carlin has found some genuine talents to fill the pages of his weekly series, and Jesus Saiz continues the trend of professional looking pencil work. And that's kind of nice. Read Full Review
