    Countdown #28 was a good read. Dini continues his upward trend on this title as almost all of the plotlines have been jumpstarted and are now progressing with a point and purpose. Countdown still isn't a title that I would definitely recommend you run out and buy. Nor has Countdown come close to matching the incredible experience that was 52. However, at least Dini is now delivering a story that is quickly paced and entertaining. We weren't even getting that on Countdown for a while. Read Full Review

    I'm sure the DC fans will say, "Just you wait!" I'm sure some day this will all make sense. But my problem, and my point, is that I shouldn't have to endure week after week to get to that point. Entertain me now or don't bother putting out the book. I get the sense that the last month or two of this will actually be important, but couldn't a six-issue mini-series have taken care of this? When all is done, Countdown might actually matter, but DC will have greatly abused its fans. There's no other way to look at a weekly series that accomplishes nothing for at least 50% of its run. It's just shameless. Read Full Review
