    Countdown #30 was another entertaining read. Dini appears to have turned the corner on this title. We may get lucky and be in store for a pretty wild ride from here on out. I hope so. It is great to finally see Countdown starting to live up to its potential. I know that it is late in the game to jump on to this title. However, if you love the Multiverse and travelling to the different parallel Earths, then this is a perfect time to start reading Countdown. If nothing else, this upswing in the quality of the issues means that Countdown should certainly be worth getting when it is released in trade format. Read Full Review

    Major Tom to Ground Control send up some better covers, please. Were getting a good one about every five weeks or so. That average should and could be a lot, lot better. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 3, 2007

    Luckily, Countdown spent only a few pages on these weaker stories and focused the brunt of its time wisely on the Challengers and Earth-15. Countdown still isn't the best book on the market, but it is definitely on the upswing and not nearly as frustrating to read as it once was. Read Full Review

    There is no reason for you to buy this book. It's not the worst thing out there, but if you're a DC fan there are far better things to invest in. Any non-DC fans should stay away. Read Full Review
