Countdown #51: First Impressions
I greatly enjoyed the dialogue between the Red Hood and the Joker's Daughter. I also loved that the Apokolips characters are back and that the monitors are taking center stage. Storywise, it really hit it out of the park for me. Paul Dini's work here is excellent.
The art was another winner for me. I had really liked Jesus Saiz's work on Checkmate, and in my opinion his work has really taken it to another level. Inker Jimmy Palmiotti does his usual astonishing work here as well.
Maybe I am a bit easier to please then the average reader, but I really enjoyed Countdown #51. Knowing this is a weekly series thrills me to no end and I can hardly wait for next week!
What are your first impressions?
