    Countdown #31 was an enjoyable issue. This is the first time that I finished an issue of Countdown and was seriously excited for the next issue. Is it possible that Dini has finally gotten this title on track and will now deliver consistently good reads each week? I really hope so. The only problem is that it might be a case of too little too late. So many readers have been turned off by the rather lackluster beginning of Countdown and it might be hard to get them to jump back on board of this title. Read Full Review

    This week we at least have art that looks respectable. Manuel Garcia doesn't cut corners or portray characters as sketchy blobs. There is a good flow to the page and a professional presentation to the issue - which is more than I can say for the last few weeks. Bringing up the rear this week is a quick Joker origin story by Mark Waid and Brian Bolland. It actually dares to mix three of the most infamous origin stories for Batman's archenemy into one, with a clever hook to explain the variations. Sadly it's only two pages and is certainly not enough to make this even remotely worth its cover price. Read Full Review
