    Yes, I'm giving this issue a Must Read. This is the first time I've ever given a Countdown issue my full recommendation and I really can't find any faults with the issue outside the Firestorm conclusion, which, to be honest, wasn't even that bad. If you've been ignoring Countdown up until now or dropped it along the way, do yourself a favour and pick this issue up. I guarantee you'll like it. Read Full Review

    Major Tom to Ground Control: Whats that I spy on the cover for next weeks issue? A certain 5th-Dimensional imp? Send me up some of that stuff, baby. Lets get gonzo, lets get crazy, lets let everything hang out and ask DC to open the coffers and let the entire cache of seventy-freakin-years of funky weirdness spill out and wash over us. Go, dog, go! Read Full Review

    Countdown to Final Crisis #24 was a huge disappointment. This issue seriously dampened my enthusiasm for this title and the impending Final Crisis. At this point, I am approaching this big event with a sense of dread. I have tried to stay positive about Countdown ever since the beginning of this story. However, DC is making it hard for me to continue to stay excited about what is happening on Countdown. Read Full Review

    Little room is left for any other threads this week, and it's not surprising that there are few new or interesting developments in the respective journeys of Karate Kid et al. or the Challengers. This issue offers very little apart from an insipidly annoying Superman and a fairly major spoiler for The Sinestro Corps War. Even if you've followed Countdown from the beginning, I have to urge you to stay far, far away this week. Read Full Review
