Comics this week
Countdown to Final Crisis #1- It's almost over! 52 was a work that shows how a weekly series could work; Countdown is a series that shows how a weekly would not. Take for example this issue: The new-look Challengers of the Beyond (Donna Troy, Ray Palmer etc) show up and told all the Monitors that they are the new broder-police of the 52 worlds. Tell me how in the bloody 52 worlds did the Challengers got so powerful that they can actually challenge even one Monitors, much less ALL The Monitors? When I read that, I was wondering :" Why aren't the Monitors laughing at these guys?" Wait, that will require a series that actually care that it is making sense. Sorry, my bad.
