    Countdown #27 was another good read. Dini continues to impress me with how he has managed to stem the tide on this title and deliver solid reads over the course of the past month. Countdown has certainly gotten off to a slow start and it isn't as incredible as 52. But, Countdown is a quality read that is getting more and more entertaining with each issue. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 24, 2007

    Another good outing for Countdown. Definitely the right time to get back into this series as all the stories heat up and the book prepares to change to Countdown to Final Crisis. Can't wait for the name change and promise of improved art on this book. This week's art was atrocious and an assault on the eyes. Read Full Review

    And DC, please reconsider giving Carlos Magno more work on this series. It's entirely possible Magno is capable of good work when not forced to draw at a frantic pace, but when he shows up every four weeks like clockwork my eyes just can't stand it. Read Full Review

    Major Tom to Ground Control: Im still waiting for an entire issue centered around only one or possibly two of the storylines. Call it experimentation, call it a wild hair, but were running out of time, and this book needs a Come to Jesus issue. Boy, does it. Read Full Review
