With the undisputed success of DC's last weekly series, "52," all eyes are on "Countdown" and expectations are high. "Batman: The Animated Series" writer Paul Dini, whose work on "Detective Comics" has been earning more and more buzz, serves as head writer, supervising a team of newly DC-exclusive writers including Tony Bedard ("Negation," "Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes") and Adam Beechen ("Robin" "Teen Titans"). Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, both DC-exclusives, also serve on the "Countdown" writing staff.
The first issue of "Countdown," #51, drops in comic stores next Wednesday, May 9th. The following Friday, May 10th, MySpace Comic Books will present another exclusive "Countdown" preview of the first half of issue #50.
