Countdown #33

Kyle Rayner is now on the list of characters Adam Beechen shouldn't write. I mean, maybe it was the artist but that first sequence was a bit too sleazy for me. Since when does Kyle come on to his old girlfriends, anyway? There should be a lot more awkwardness there.

The second sequence was better when Simone wrote it in Atom #15. The layout and the art in Atom was much better too.

Nice cover, at least.


  1. Strangely, Countdown To Adventure is readable... well, Sardath should probably be on the list of characters Beechen shouldn't write.

    Geez, it's looking to be an awfully long list, isn't it?

  2. Well, judging by how he wrote Kyle maybe he can handle Hal?

  3. I've just never enjoyed his work much. With any character. Though, I agree, the come-on particularly jarred me.

    And what the hell was up with the art in this issue, anyway? Everybody looked like they were floating half the time.

    Then again, the worst part of Countdown has, consistently, been the art.

  4. No, the worst part of Countdown is that it doesn't feel like it is going anywhere. Everyone is having this adventure but the point or begining just didn't have the same pizzaz as 52.
