    Default Countdown: The Search for Ray Palmer

Donna Troy, Jason Todd, and Kyle Rayner - accompanied by a Monitor - are the stars. Six issues. Marz said he was happy about writing Kyle Rayner again.
    This is a bit of a surprise, since Ron hasn't written much for DC lately (other than the Ion maxi-series). But I am definitely intrigued. Anything else you can tell your fans here, Ron? Hmm?

    Yeah, Ron, what's the deal? 'Cuz I'm friggin' LOST trying to figure out COUNTDOWN, and any helpful hints you might have -- or ideas I could steal -- would be much appreciated.

    Seeing as how the Wildstorm characters have been known to act on a tad more pristine level than your average DCU guy, were you asked to keep the tone lighter than usual for their characters?

    And I know you won't anser this, but Ion fans are goiing to be mad after June? That hurts. Really.

    I can tell you the art looks really great. Probably not what you were thinking of, though.

    Truthfully, I think the less I say, the better. This is one of the reasons I truly wish solicitations didn't get into the hands of fans so early. Anything I say could be a spoiler, or completely misinterpreted, so I'll just keep mum on this one, except to say that I think the whole storyline is gonna be pretty interesting, with some long-lasting ramifications.

    Aww, jeez, I gotta hold your hand some more, Bedard?!

    I was gonna come to YOU for the skinny on Countdown. Can't you help a brother out?

    And you've already beaten my most count. Unless I get to add my posts from ComicBloc. Then you're still eatin' my dust!

    You're right, I'm not going to answer that.

    As for the WS characters, nope, no lighter tone. If anything, just the opposite.

    Ron, any chance you can make a deal with Tony where you explain Countdown to him and he can explain how Supergirl is in both the current time and 31st Century too?:)

    Of course I'm used to confusing, as my first LSH issue was when they blew the Earth up and I was like "Man, they can do that?"
