The Countdown is Out of the Bag

Mere moments after I posted my COUNTDOWN missive, the series was officially confirmed!

DC unleashes its next weekly comic event, and head writer Paul Dini gives Wizard the exclusive scoop!

"Beginning May 9, the week after the final issue of 52 hits shelves, DC unleashes Countdown, a massive, yearlong weekly series with writer Paul Dini sitting at the steering wheel. The series literally counts down as it starts with issue #51 and screeches to a deafening halt with issue #0. Along for the rip-roaring ride will be a slew of backup writers, the entire DCU and enough action to melt your face. "

Look for Donna Troy to play a role in the dramatic series:

And we’ve heard that Donna Troy, Kyle Rayner and Jason Todd all play a role?

DINI: Right, and in the back of all this there are big secrets brewing, secret armies and ultimate disasters and betrayals in the works. I think the way it starts off is not going to be exactly how it finishes up, but once all the pieces are together, like a huge puzzle, the people will go “Oh, of course. It couldn’t have ended any other way.”

    As a reply to all those who have said, "Don't kill Donna again" and such, here is my response.

    In DC, people don't get killed often enough, as compared to Marvel. It seems that the annual Crisis is the only time some major deaths happen. We need to see more death and less resurrection in DC.

    no we dont.
    resurections fun neways, as long as they come up with a decent excuse. ur right tho, the DC writers seem to become to attached to their charecters.
    the arc looks fantastic tho. i dunno how Robin Red's gonna be introduced tho.
    Jason Todd's next identity maybe??
