    Countdown #50 was an average read. It certainly wasn't as good as Countdown #51. However, we are still very early in this series and I'm confident that Dini and the boys will get this story back on track and deliver plenty of entertaining issues. Countdown should still be a fun series. Read Full Review

    1. In all, a disappointing second issue with little to recommend it. Issue #51 was buoyed, for me, by the Monitors' inclusion and the cosmic touch they brought to the proceedings. That gave Countdown the air of something big. This week could have used some of that. Dini has been knocking most of them out of the ballpark over in Detective, so its a bit hard to take this ringleader floundering in Countdown. I can only surmise that hes got a lot more juggling to do in this book, a great deal with editorial presumably. I hope the waters smooth out, and we can get a real sailboat race of a title.
