    All that aside, Salvation Run isn't entirely a lost cause. Willingham wisely focuses on the Flash Rogues for the majority of this issue. The Rogues are some of the most entertaining and sympathetic villains in DC's arsenal and make for decent focal points. I'm interested to see how the series progresses as more and more villains are dumped on this barely hospitable planet. Hopefully Willingham will follow tradition and pick up steam quickly enough for Salvation Run to rise above the glut of other mediocre Countdown tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a slow but decent start to what has the potential to be a great series. Most of the Countdown tie-ins are better than Countdown itself so Im definitely willing to give this series the benefit of the doubt. I will say though, something about Dan Didios DC Nation column this week, discussing the history of Salvation Run, really bothered me. It seemed like he was taking the credit over the actual writer of this series, I understand hes the Editor-in-Chief, but it really felt like Didio was taking all of the credit. Read Full Review

    Ive heard from other readers who have kept up with Countdown that most of the spin-offs have been less than exciting. I think you have to add Salvation Run to that growing list, as a normally reliable writer like Willingham has taken a dream assignment for most writers and created a first issue that is hardly appealing enough.

    Unless you absolutely must have every single one of the Flash's Rogues appearances, as they are the only relatively interesting characters in this issue, don't even bother with this book. Read Full Review
