Countdown to Financial Crisis
COUNTDOWN has just been pocket-universed. I just bought my last one - at least for awhile.
COUNTDOWN #51 showed a lot of promise... intriguing story, interesting mysteries, good cast, good art, solid writers and big things happening! But I feel every issue since then has gone progressively downhill. The plot is moving at a snail's pace, every issue feels the same, the art is rushed and nothing is happening!
Worse yet, we are getting a slew of mini-series tie-ins. And all this is merely leading up to FINAL CRISIS... Which leads me to just want to stop buying COUNTDOWN and just pick up FINAL CRISIS when it comes out. Really, I just feel like I am getting what should be a 12-issue mini-series spread over 52 issues plus 20-something tie-ins. Law of diminishing returns, those tie-ins.
Wizard online also provides a COUNTDOWN catch-all every week.
Plus, I can put that $12 towards stuff like NEW WARRIORS, RUNAWAYS, DYNAMO 5, GARGOYLES and get lots more story for my money...
