    Damn, Alabaster should sell a poster print of that title card. DC Zombies!

    That's actually his girlfriend's work. ^_~

    lol, Yeah I noticed the name in the credits later. Whew, I was considering getting Countdown back in the day, so glad I didn't waste that money.

    Hey Linkara! This review is great, but I do want to ask you something. When they mention Apokilyspe or however they spell it, what happened to the "Because bad literacy is COOL!' Joke?

    Damn, I really like Harley Quinn's attitude, it's absolutely perfect for the situation.

    Also, how exactly do you kill a god anyway? Kill them to death?

    Best.
    Episode.
    Ever.

    Yeah, I've already watched it (what with the "other episodes from this series you might enjoy" scroll popping it up several hours ago) and, well, I'm still laughing at it.

    One question: how the hell did Superboy/man Prime capture Mxyzptlk? Or is that never explained much like everything else this series has done?
  • Linkara
    avatar
    He punched a hole in reality and pulled him from the fifth dimension. I'm not kidding.
  • iamnotincompliance
    avatar
    So [b]that's[/b] what what Dr. Insano was babbling about when he won the presidency!

    That's just hilarious. If I can accept everything else this series has thrown out, I can accept holes punched in reality.

    I wait in suspense as to what the "to be continued" at the end could mean...
  • ziggyshiv
    avatar
    that's so retarded it's almost cool. except it's super boy prime who did it.
  • Solitair
    Fucking AGAIN? Is that his signature move now?
  • JohniBoi
    Maybe when you're done doing countdown you can reveiw the DOOM comic maybe?

    Great job on this episode, Linkara. I was worried about there only being two main parts to Countdown, but the pacing and structure of the video really helped in framing why you only needed two parts for the overarching series, and ties off most of what the books tried to achieve well.

    I'm gonna have to watch both parts again later on in order, as it'll help me internalize all of this information, but at the end of the day this is your longest (I think) and strongest episode regarding the joke setups, the frustration, and of course the intro.

    I just wonder what's next? Final Crisis? Are we gonna have to wait 30 years for it? :P

    XD Watching this video at 2 am forced me to laugh like a squeak toy for like five minutes!

    Nice video man!
  • Chosen Zelos
    avatar
    Who Monitors the Monitors? Pretty much the "Who Watches the Watchmen?" tag line that never became clever nor worthy of being on a t-shirt. Fuckin' re-todded. :pinch:

    Nice review man. That's one less thing I don't have to read that I never intended on reading to begin with and thank god I never thought otherwise ... so, thanks.

    Wow... this video has been over thirty minutes long. Not that I don't mind but I wonder how you can cope doing a new video each week. I think that's impressive.
    Man, all this stuff happening only to lead to nothing. Why!? Just... why? How is that supposed to please the fans or get anyone new ones? It just doesn't!
    Great review. You sure own a lot of bad comics. You didn't buy all these countdown issues, did you?
  • MaiMai
    avatar
    Whoa, didn't expect that in the opening XD
  • Deimos1984rd  - I really hate superdouche prick
    avatar
    The countdown is over...it's over...but at what cost.

    thanks, there's still a few vids I haven't seen yet, so I'll have to check those out.
  • The Soda Jerk  - Wait!

    is Benzaie okay? The Bum just blew up France. Oh crap...
  • RebelTaxi

    "Who monitors the monitors?"

    Wow... I can't believe someone wrote that thinking that was any good. That' is just plane terrible. Thats sounds like something from a Watchmen parody.
  • Flamma Man  - Man,,,
    avatar
    That opening's still so catchy.

    I've also just been a fan of your series for months now and just to see you rip into this was great.

    This comic is Re-Todded.

    *Is shot by Linkara*

    Sorry I had to. :(
  • JohniBoi  - re:
    [quote=Linkara] November.[/quote]Perfect! It can be my birthday present then! YAY DOOM COMIC! :)

    I always knew there was more to Chester than just the raving and bodily funk and previously unidentified diseases...

    (not to distract from the epic undertaking that is the actual comic reviews, of course :D )
  • DeathsHead419  - Damn
    avatar
    I always knew that bum was up to know good.

    Seriously, that opening was the funniest thing I've seen in ages.
  • Black
    This was retodded!
    ... I hope that gun doesn't have long range.
  • YetAnotherGuyWithGlasses
    avatar
    It's a magic gun, it's range is limited only by plot :)

    (With apologies to JMS for trying to reuse one of his phrases)
  • Disinformation
    Thanks for this great extensive imaginative work and for summarizing countdown.
    Now can you summarize Proust?
  • Redbob86  - Good stuff
    A word bubble at 25:21 was the only semi-enjoyable line in the whole series.

    "It's like Cheerleading Camp! Only run by Bin Laden!"

    When that's the highlight of 51 issues, you KNOW something is wrong.
  • Sewblon  - That was terrifying.
    avatar
    So the only point of this 51 issue series was to kill Darkside and Orian? Wouldn't Pied Piper still have the anti-life equation and basically be able to control everything?
  • Dinger
    avatar
    *points at the last issue*
    Its the final countdown
  • LikaLaruku
    avatar
    You missed the perfect oppertunity to end the show with Europe's "The Final Countdown."
  • teleport  - great
    great as alyways
  • ziggyshiv

    i think jimmy olsen fighting as a giant turtle is actually a throwback to one of the superman comics from the 60s. Where Jimmy was hit with an enlarger ray that passed through a turtle on the deck of the boat. am i remembering this correctley?
  • Linkara
    avatar
    All of his powers in the series were.
  • Animikean
    avatar
    I was told the power he used on Apokolips was supposed to be Ambush Bug's.

    (when I heard this I was greatly offended on behalf of all people real and created)
  • Blizzard Jakkal
    Who monitors the monitors? = Who watches the watchmen? only more stupider :woohoo:

    Girls go to Mars to get more bras
    Boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider
  • BBboy
    avatar
    What? There's more of this atrocity?
  • zakkro
    avatar
    You know would have made this series somewhat decent? If it was a parody of event comics. But, no, it wasn't and just listening to the summary sounds as stupifying as actually reading the whole thing... I'm assuming. >_<

    Also, why, why, WHY did they have to bring Batman Beyond into this travesty? Just for kicks? No, that is unacceptable!
