Read full description of the books:



Um, wow. I was expecting very, very little from these Countdown to Final Crisis companion series, largely because Countdown itself was such a dissappointment. But Countdown to Mystery is actually quite a bit better than Countdown itself had been. In fact, it's actually very good.

The helm of Doctor Fate has fallen to a disgraced former psychologist, and he's completely unprepared for it. He's an interesting character, not quite self-pitying enough to be insufferable. There's a lot of very good groundwork laid here. Sadly, Gerber passed away with the series unfinished. He had plotted #7, which was scripted by Adam Beechen. For #8, DC had four writers (Beechen, Mark Evanier, Mark Waid, and Gail Simone) each write their versions of how they thought the ending of the miniseries would play out. Of course, they're all too brief to be truly satisfying. I think I liked Simone's best, though, since the ending was actually pretty funny.

The only thing I had to add is how nice it was to read an actually good comic after all the other Countdown books. So very, very nice.

Read information about the author

Ebook Dr. Fate: Countdown to Mystery read Online! Steve Gerber graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in communications and took a job in advertising. To keep himself sane, he wrote bizarre short stories such as "Elves Against Hitler," "Conversion in a Terminal Subway," and "...And the Birds Hummed Dirges!" He noticed acquaintance Roy Thomas working at Marvel, and Thomas sent him Marvel's standard writing test, dialoguing Daredevil art. He was soon made a regular on Daredevil and Sub-Mariner, and the newly created Man-Thing, the latter of which pegged him as having a strong personal style--intellectual, introspective, and literary. In one issue, he introduced an anthropomorphic duck into a horror fantasy, because he wanted something weird and incongruous, and Thomas made the character, named for Gerber's childhood friend Howard, fall to his apparent death in the following issue. Fans were outraged, and the character was revived in a new and deeply personal series. Gerber said in interview that the joke of Howard the Duck is that "there is no joke." The series was existential and dealt with the necessities of life, such as finding employment to pay the rent. Such unusual fare for comicbooks also informed his writing on The Defenders. Gerber eventually lost a lawsuit for control of the character when he was defending the artist's delayed paychecks for the series.
