    Countdown to Final Crisis was a fun read. This was a good rebound issue for Dini and it appears that the gloves are off with this story. I think that DC changing the title from "Countdown" to "Countdown to Final Crisis" was a subtle statement to the reader that Countdown was just filler. That now it is "Countdown to Final Crisis" the true substance of the story is going to be delivered. This is certainly a good point for new readers to hop aboard this title. It seems that anything of real importance is going to happen over the course of these final 24 issues. Read Full Review

    And hey, the book doesn't offend the eyes this week! Coming off a relative high point thanks to Scott Kolins last week, the trend continues with Ron Lim's pencils. Lim won't blow your mind with epic page layouts or intricately detailed figures, but his characters are surprisingly expressive, especially during the requisite goofball sequence featuring Trickster and Pied Piper. Every so often it's nice to have a reminder that the Countdown crew is capable of firing on more than a few cylinders and delivering a reasonably enjoyable reading experience. Read Full Review

    I'm sure someone out there likes Firestorm and the Karate Kid storyline, so they'll probably enjoy this issue much more than me. The only bright side for me was knowing that the faster the Karate Kid storyline progresses, the sooner I won't have to read about it anymore. Hopefully they get back to the more tolerable storylines next week. Read Full Review
