I've only just had a chance to read Countdown 46, and I'm not going to be able to post properly about it until tonight or tomorrow AM. When I do, I am going to point out a lot of flaws in the comic, but I just want to say - if the first few issues had been this good I would have been a lot kinder to them. This issue is not a good comic, but it's competent. I actually think you could pick this up without having read the previous five issues and follow it. This issue is up to the standard of the better bits of issues 49 and 50 and manages to keep some momentum going throughout, unlike those issues, and is miles ahead of the tedious 51, 48 and 47. More later.
(BTW, I'm off to work now and won't be able to approve comments until tonight. If yours doesn't show up, that's why).
