Thankfully, the end is near

With “Countdown to Final Crisis” in its final weeks — Issue No. 3 came out today — I’m counting down to when I no longer waste money on this weekly series. I enjoyed “52,” the predecessor to “Countdown,” but have been disappointed this time around. There have been a few good issues, but mostly not. The Mary Marvel storyline is an example of what’s wrong with the series. Mary went over to the dark side, then saw the error of her ways. And then, in a blink of an eye a week or two ago, she’s suddenly evil again. And, yes, I could have stopped spending money on it at any time. But I kept hoping it would get better. And now that it’s near the end, I can’t just abandon it with a couple of issues to go. Can I?
